The accusations of the non-governmental Amnesty International and OCCRP on the violation of the international responsibilities on export control against Ukraine do not have the grounds for legal evaluation. The State Service of Export Control of Ukraine (SSECU) reported this.
The SSECU noted that Ukraine is a member of all international regimes of the export control and it sticks to all demands and proper resolutions of the UN Security Council.
'Ukraine regularly submits the reports on the export of the arms to the UN register of conventional armaments and Secretariats of regimes. Countries-members of the UN members and regimes did not pursue a claim on the non-fulfillment of the international responsibilities because our state did not supply the arms despite the international and national restrictions. Talking about these publications, they carry the emotional nature for the society and do not have the grounds for legal evaluation by the international experts', the message said.
The State Export Control noted that 'Ukrinmash' company did not supply the arms to South Sudan. Also, the proper approval documents for this aim for this company were not issued.
'Talking about the activity of the private enterprise 'Techimpex', it stays within the norms of the legal business. The production made by this company, including the usage of the imported spare parts in 2014-2016 was supplied to Ethiopia, UAE, Chad and Uganda and there is no restrictions on these countries from the side of the UN and the EU', the service emphasized.
The international human right organization Amnesty-International claimed about the illegal supplies of the arms from Ukraine to South Sudan that was used for the murder of the civilians. Ukrinmash belied this information. MP from the Petro Poroshenko Bloc Iryna Friz noted at Facebook that the report of the Amnesty International is absurd and discreditable for the organization first of all. She noted that the export of arms is transparency in Ukraine since 2014.
The workers of the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) stated that the Ukrainian Company 'Techimpex' conducts the washing of the armaments and spare parts made in Poland, Slovakia, Moldova, Bulgaria, Hungary, Romania and Bosnia and Herzegovina. Also, it was reported that this company supplied the arms to the markets of Africa, the Middle East and Asia, including Ethiopia, Korea, Chad, UAE and Uganda.
