Kiev plant was accused of supplying low-quality equipment to the APU

33
The National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine suspects that officials of the state-owned enterprise Kyiv Armored Plant (BTWC) purchased low-quality Ukrainian steel, which has lower bullet resistance, instead of declared high-quality Belgian steel, the television service website said on Wednesday News (TSN) of the Ukrainian TV channel "1 + 1".


Kiev plant was accused of supplying low-quality equipment to the APU


As noted in the decision of the Slavic district court of Kiev, in November 2015, the Ministry of Defense entered into an agreement with the BTWC on the supply of the army with the upgraded armored personnel carriers BTR-3DA. A pre-trial investigation established that over the next two years, the state-owned enterprise spent on the purchase of ATI500AR steel for the 57,12 armored personnel carriers corps of one million hryvnias (2,1 million dollars). Whereas during the tests, the presented armor parts were made of a material of another brand - HB500MOD, produced in Belgium
- the report says.

According to TSN, the anti-corruption bureau considers the purchased steel to be of poor quality: it was made by the Ukrainian Lozovsky Forging-Mechanical Plant, this is a semi-finished product - uncured steel with other physical and chemical characteristics without guarantees of mechanical properties, which makes it less bulletproof and threatens the lives of military personnel.

      The spy (most likely from Russia) unscrewed the lock nut ...
      But seriously, there is no norm control either because of total collapse and sloppiness, or "shamanism" with documents + theft.

        Volodya, after all, only RPG-7 is Soviet, and the shell is a remake from the same manufacturers. If there were MSL of the years 60-70s, BTRu-3DA would have come - full ... Khan. laughing

    When the country itself has become a "semi-product", is it worth it to look for the perpetrators who stole the money?

    The National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine suspects that officials of the Kiev Armored Plant (KBTO) state enterprise, instead of the declared high-quality Belgian steel, purchased low-quality Ukrainian, which has lower bullet resistance

    Once Ukraine has already bought bulletproof glass in Belgium - for the Dozors. According to the results of the investigation, it became clear that the purchased steel:
    a) not Belgian;
    b) not armored.
    It turned out that the company from which the purchase was made is located in Belgium, but is part of the Russian NLMK Group and supplies “civilian armor” - wear-resistant steel for protection against abrasion.
    Not a single NLMK Group company, Russian or foreign, supplies and has never supplied bulletproof steel to Ukraine. The Belgian company NLMK Group, NLMK Clabecq, mentioned in the publications, supplies to dozens of countries around the world, including to Ukraine, Quard wear-resistant steel, which is used for the production of mining, transport and agricultural equipment. The specified products in terms of their characteristics do not meet the requirements for bulletproof steel and cannot be used for military purposes.

    In short, Putin is always to blame. smile

    National trait - Selyuk does not think about the fate of other Selyuk. Therefore, all the screams on the Maidan that we, like together and a lot of us, are not about Ukraine. The wattle fence is higher, the neighbors have more dirty tricks ... For the money and in general, it is not a pity to send a person to the next world.

    What did they want? The fish rots from the head! The authorities are stealing, they are lagging behind on the ground!

    And it seems to me that this saying has no effect on Ukraine! Everything rots there evenly! Well you will not say that they are not all like that? If not all, then where are the others? Why are they silent? How deep are they in anal stuffed? And if clogged, then they also rot ...

    steel is worse and cheaper, someone has a difference in their pocket ..
    There are many similar cases; fines for the Watch have already been collected
    the article is the country of yua, it has a detail
    Alfa Techno Import sold materials to the state-owned enterprise, which the police had previously suspected in breach of trust. In the 2012 year, she received from SE Antonov 1,45 million UAH for the supply of spare parts for truck cranes that were never provided. The latest information on this criminal case in the court register dates from the end of 2014.

    it is our opinion to deal with such firms.
    take an advance and do not deliver is breach of trust.... you can also supply steel ...

    Strange Google does not give out any information about this brand of steel: ATI500AR.
    The news is also strange, there are a lot of screams about the hail and no specifics.
    If Belgian steel was not used, then which steel was used, and by what properties is it worse?
    It is interesting to broaden your horizons what kind of steel is so wonderful.

      Congratulations.
      You still have to get used to the fact that the vast majority of the so-called patriots on both sides of the Russian-Ukrainian border are jumping exactly the same. They only have different pots ...
