General Director of Ukroboronprom defense state enterprise Aivaras Abromavičius stated that there will be no salary arrears at 15 Ukroboronprom enterprises out of 43.
In general, salary arrears owed to employees in 43 enterprises make approximately $ 18 million. While the total salary debt is about $ 420 million.
“This pulls the entire Concern down. We must pay 600 million dollars to people alone, including taxes and special pensions. We have a short plan on how we will solve this problem, on our own and by the state. I suppose that by the end of the year we will be able to pay off the debt at 15 enterprises,” Aivaras Abromavičius noted.
He added that it is possible to achieve these goals without the help of the Ministry of Finance, but if the Concern receives help, then debts can be closed in 6 months.
“If everyone can help, then, I think, in 6 months there will be no wage arrears,” Abromavičius said.
As we reported early, Malyshev factory, a state-owned manufacturer of heavy equipment in Kharkiv, has produced only one tank for the Ukrainian army since 2009. President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky stated this during his working meeting in Kharkiv on the issues of work Ukroboronprom State Defense Concern.
