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.
