Due to the fact that Roman Romanov’s resignation letter was submitted at the end of 2017, and yesterday the President of Ukraine signed the decree, UKROBORONPROM (UOP) Supervisory Board is finishing the process of selecting a candidate for the President of Ukraine to appoint a new Director General.
"I want to thank Roman Romanov, who is leaving this post. He had to work during the the most difficult years for our country: Dramatic transformations in the domestic defense sector took place during this time. Ukrainian defense industry in 2014 and today – it’s like night and day. Paced work of the factories, implementation of the State Defense Order, successful implementation of the import substitution program, building missile shield and the latest developments – all of these create an integral system of positive changes, achieved by the team of Roman Romanov.
It’s a pity to lose a highly professional manager. There’s no doubt that Roman Romanov will receive cooperation offers from a number of domestic and foreign companies.
Now the joint task of the UOP team is to continue the reforms and ensure the further growth of the State Concern. Openness, efficiency, and innovation are three key principles that should be laid in the basis of further progress of the domestic military-defense complex", – said Mykhaylo Zhurovs’kyy, Chairman of UOP Supervisory Board.
