Information attacks on the State Concern "UkrOboronProm" is part of aggressor’s hybrid war. Despite the positive evaluation of the Ukrainian military-industrial complex by world experts, media continues to spread false statements on Ukraine’s dependence on Russia. This is stated in the published results of Concern in 2016.
"While the world experts note growth of effectiveness performance of Ukraine’s domestic defense industry, "UkrOboronProm" undergoes constant information attacks that are part of aggressor’s hybrid war," – said UOP representatives.
This year "UkrOboronProm" jumped 24 positions up in the world ranking of arms manufacturers according to "DefenseNews" and took 68 place. According to Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) – the SC “UkrOboronProm” immediately jumped 11 positions up – uop took 81 position among all defense companies in the world.
Media scene analysis showed that the aggressor country is the source of majority of information attacks. Next is media of the temporarily occupied territories. The most common and false populist statement is the one on dependence of Ukrainian defense on Russia.
