"The counterintelligence service of the SBU has exposed a large-scale scheme of shadow production, theft and shipment of components for Russian military aviation to the Russian Federation," the statement says.
By order of the representatives of the Russian Federation, the attackers illegally supplied them with spare parts for the aircraft engines of Russian combat aircraft. Among them are MiG-29, Su-27 and Su-30 fighters, as well as Mi-24 attack helicopters and Mi-35M transport and combat helicopters.
The partakers of the scheme, including officials of a Ukrainian state-owned enterprise and heads of affiliated commercial structures, stole military products during the production process at one of the state-owned enterprises in the Kharkiv region.
To transport products across the customs border, the dealers forged data in the shipping documents, and for sales abroad they had contacts with representatives of the military-industrial complexes of the Russian Federation and one of the countries of East Asia.
Malefactors are punished due to the implementation of international transfers of goods subject to state export control and appropriation of property through abuse of office.
