During 21 days of cynical and barbaric war, fascist Russia shelled and bombarded most of Ukroboronprom's enterprises, trying to destroy Ukrainian defense's manufacturing sites and infrastructure. Despite massive missile strikes, the state defense industry continues strengthening defense capabilities of the best and most powerful army in the world — Armed Forces of Ukraine. Where and how is not subject to disclosure. As of March 16, all Ukroboronprom's enterprises, except one, are under the state control. Mobile repair crews continue repairing both Ukrainian military hardware and Russian trophy vehicles. As Russia will not need the latter. After all, a Russian warship, wherever it is located — in the water, in the skies or on land — has one way to go: go f*** itself. By the way, an undamaged Russian plane can still be exchanged for 1 million dollars, a helicopter — for half a million dollars. The offer is valid until the victory, the victory of the strongest nation in the world — Ukraine.
Ukraine is getting stronger and cities are uniting! Cherkasy region handed over humanitarian aid to a Kharkiv defense enterprise: vegetables, canned food, flour, milk, water. All this was given to the factory workers, who continue working overtime to meet the needs of Ukrainian men at the front. Thank you for supporting your friends. Only together will we win this war!
Russians destroy An-225 «Mriya», it will be restored at the expense of the occupant Russian occupiers destroyed the flagship of Ukrainian aviation — the legendary An-225 «Mriya». This happened at the Antonov airfield in Gostomel near Kyiv, where the plane was. It will cost over 3 bln USD to restore the plane, the restoration shall be time consuming.  Ukraine will make every effort to ensure that the aggressor state pays for these works. Russia has hit the Mriya as a symbol of Ukraine’s aviation capabilities. An-225 «Mriya» — avia giant, which holds records for transportation of biggest commercial cargo and longest and heaviest in the history of aviation monoloading, lifting capacity. Unfortunately, these options are lost today, however they will be definitely restored. The occupiers destroyed the airplane, but they won’t be able to destroy our common dream. Mriya will definitely be reborn. The restoration is estimated to take over 3 bln USD and over 5 years. Our task is to ensure that these costs are covered by the Russian Federation, which has caused intentional damage to Ukraine’s aviation and the air cargo sector. Russia has destroyed our «Mriya» ( laterally translated as “lathe “dream”), but the dream of Ukraine to get free from the occupier cannot be destroyed. We will fight for our land and our home until we win. And after the victory, we will definitely finish our new «Mriya», which has been waiting for this in a safe place for many years. Everything will be Ukraine!” Yuriy Husyev said, General Director of Ukroboronprom. At the time of invasion, the AN-225 Mriya was under repair at Gostomel Airport, so it did not have time to leave Ukraine.
We can’t disclose the details of the situation at our defense enterprises to avoid assisting  the enemy.  But there’s a thing that needs to be said. All these days Ukroboronprom is handing over weapons and military equipment to our defenders. Yesterday one of the enterprises managed to fly a repaired helicopter, literally under the noses of the Russians.  And you already know that our Air Force has the best pilots! Dozens of weapons of various nomenclature were transferred to Ukraine’sArmed Forces and National Guard. Including tanks.  And those incomplete vehicles and all trucks — to the Territorial Defense Forces. Last night, Ukraine’s Armed Forces, the National Security Service, the National Police and the military units, including a Territorial Defense Forces unit of the State Concerb, repulsed enemy’s attempts to break into some enterprises. The plants are currently operating according to their schedules and algorithms agreed for each enterprise.  In some cases all design and other documentation has been relocated. Ukroboronprom enterprises work 7 days a week, without weekends. The director of one of Ukroboronprom’s plants, together with Ukraine’s Armed Forces, the National Guard and the Territorial Defense Forces, organized the defense of the plant and the airfield. He organized his Territorial Defense Forces, repulsed five attacks, and already has trophy weapons and shot down two aircraft with a landing troops. The management of Ukroboronprom is currently working in Kyiv.   Glory to Ukraine!
