SECURITY SERVICE OF UKRAINE AND UKROBORONPROM FOUND ILLEGAL DISTRIBUTION CHANNEL TO RUSSIA

Management of the SC “Ukroboronprom” appealed to the Security Service of Ukraine to promptly put a stop to the work of illegal distribution channel at one of the Mykolaiv enterprises.

In 2014 UKROBORONPROM cut off all official military supplies to Russia, adversely affecting productive capacity of the aggressor country. In particular, now Russia is unable to commercially produce gas turbines, since it bought spares from Mykolayiv enterprise Gas Turbine Research and Production Complex “Zorya-Mashproekt ." That is why on April 4 a criminal attempt was undertaken to supply spares, engaging several employees of the given enterprise, who tried to take out spares and constituent parts for prototypes and serial products to Russia. However, security units of the State Concern timely detected criminal attempts and provided relevant information to the Security Service of Ukraine. As of today, agency checks at Gas Turbine Research and Production Complex “Zorya-Mashproekt" are in progress.

As repeatedly emphasized by the State Concern representatives, never a one UKROBORONPROM enterprise supplies military or dual-use products to the aggressor country or conducts any joint projects in the military sphere.

UKROBORONPROM systematically cooperates with law enforcement agencies. Materials on the results of internal investigations are checked by police in the frameworks of dozens criminal proceedings, and nearly 10 cases are already submitted to the court.
