“Ukroboronprom” is called the main negative factor, which slows down the reform process – limit legislation, preserved in its numerous atavisms and vestiges of the Soviet era.

Group CEO Paul Bukin said that it is necessary to unlock the possibilities of corporatization of some state enterprises.

“Requires a revision of the order of formation of prices for defense products of the Ministry of defense, which today does not meet the conditions of the modern economy and is the “heritage” of the USSR. We advocate change in the system of standardization, which still used outdated Standards of 40 years ago. However, unfortunately, these initiatives are “lost” in the corridors of the Verkhovna Rada and other government institutions,” he said.


The question of an international audit of “Ukroboronprom” worsened after a journalistic investigation about large plunders in the concern.

Earlier, President Vladimir Zelensky changed the composition of the Supervisory Board of “Ukroboronprom” by assigning 12 June Abromavicius, and on July 9 the David Arakhamia and Andrei Zagorodniuk. In the composition of the Board included Anthony Grouse. Another post, which refers to the quota of the Cabinet of Ministers, is currently vacant.

They cost Ukraine UAH 14380000, although from Moscow flew for 2.3 million.

As evidenced by the published correspondence of the son Gladkovsky with a business partner of Vitaly Zhukov, $ 30,000 was received by Oleg Gladkovsky, 10000 – the current Director of “Ukroboronprom” Paul Bukin.

Then, the press-service of “Ukroboronprom” called manipulative information about “rollback” former Deputy Secretary of the NSDC and the business partner of the President of the Gladkovsky on theft defense and said that parts for the An-26 bought “at a reasonable price”.

The Cabinet of Ministers has allocated to the international audit of “Ukroboronprom” 32,5 million UAH.
