A secret contract on defective mortars "Hammer" was withdrawn from the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine

The Pechersky District Court of Kiev allowed investigators of the military prosecutor’s office of the Ukrainian Armed Forces to withdraw from the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine a secret state contract from 2015 of the year for the supply of the 120-mm mortar "Hammer" developed at the Mayak plant, as well as an act of state testing of this mortar. Information about this is published by the Ukrainian Truth publication with reference to the Marlin project.




The investigation continues as part of the criminal proceedings, opened as far back as 2016 on the facts of the negligent attitude of officials of the Ministry of Defense to control over the supply of mortar "Hammer": then it turned out that the contract led to government losses in the amount of 7200000 UAH. (approximately 18 600 000 rubles).

During military operation, it turned out that there were technical flaws in the delivered mortars, and a number of delivered “Molotovs” failed after a short operation.

According to the results of the detection, it was found that in the design weapons there are drawbacks incompatible with the continued use of mortars.

- the prosecutors summed up.

As the investigation found out, at the Mayak plant there was no equipment and facilities for the manufacture of all parts of mortars. Therefore, the company purchased various mortar elements from numerous private suppliers.

One of them was Starokramatorsky Machine-Building Plant OJSC, owned by Maxim Efimov, a former member of the Party of Regions. Until recently, a deputy of the Verkhovna Rada, he completed his cadence in the ranks of the Petro Poroshenko Bloc faction. His company supplied approximately 50% of components for Hammer.

Errors in the construction of the "Hammer" has already caused the death of two fighters of the APU. In July, 2016 at the Shirokolanovsky firing range in the Nikolaev region, during firing one of the mortars exploded, killing 2 troops of the 57th brigade of the Armed forces of Ukraine.

It is noted that this incident was not the only one. In 2018, Petro Poroshenko, being the president of Ukraine at that time, banned the use of hammers in the light of another incident. Then, from the explosion of the products of the Mayak plant at the Rivne training ground, three servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were killed. In total, at the moment, the operation of the Hammer led to the death of 9 soldiers of the Ukrainian army. Also an unnamed number of soldiers were seriously injured.

The Mayak plant is controlled by the Ukroboronprom organization. At the moment, the Lighthouse is in distress.

      I smell Greens on assignment and went to Turkey with money to buy weapons ..
      Imagine what the effect would be if the bombing of the Donbass starts from Turkish weapons?
      A tricky move, I hope Erdogan understood what kind of snake (Zelu) was launched to him and what could be the consequences .. hi They will take revenge on us in the most sophisticated ways, for the supply of S-400 Turkey ... That's right, that set means!

          Well, for example, the United States gave an unlimited loan! How do you like that?
          After all, Turkey urgently needs to quarrel with Russia .. I won’t be surprised if again the ambassador is killed or the terrorist attack on the beach is even worse ..

            Unlimited loan is a new word in banking.
            In Russian - "I don't want to take it". belay

              Everything that is being done against Russia is very well financed in the West (even multimillion-dollar funds exist). This is no longer a secret. And our special services are struggling with this by blocking all sorts of NPOs, etc. heh heh ..
              And for your information, such a loan in the banking sector exists if the client is promising .. hi

                Only now Ukraine can not be called a promising client. What can Ukraine offer the West in exchange for financing? And not all the west, but specifically the United States? They can only mischief, shouting everywhere that the Russian Federation is an aggressor, that Crimea was illegally squeezed and financed by the Donbass, they shot down a Boeing, even for little things. But this is already tired of everyone.
                It did not work to drag us into the war; provocations with the bridge also did not work. Of course, Ukrainians can gasp for rockets if there are workers yet)), in the Crimea, or across the bridge, maybe we won’t even beat them down. But what will it give? Besides carte blanche for us?
                Moreover, as life shows, you can outright accuse us of anything, without evidence, without a clear answer, why would we do this, and then introduce sanctions. And these sanctions, for our fictitious misconduct, will be no worse than sanctions for Ukraine, and most importantly, almost free for the United States.
                So why spend money on Ukraine? Why finance the purchase of TURKISH weapons? Okay, the Americans would have sucked in theirs, but you get the following scheme: Americans give Ukrainians loans, they buy weapons from the Turks, and then ... Then they have a choice. Use it against LDNR? But why, Ukrainians and their weapons are enough. Or sell to the left for the personal enrichment of those in power. Which is more likely.
                And it turns out that the Americans spend money, the money goes to the Turkish military-industrial complex, then the weapon goes into third hands, and the real money goes to ZE and KO. Although the debt is being hung on Ukraine, it will never be able to repay it anyway, because there is nothing.
                There is no traceable benefit to the United States.

      Where does the information about 80% come from? Here the author claims that PetroLyakseich "prohibited the use of hammers."

    Self-service of the Armed Forces of Ukraine with the help of the Molot mortar created by the brilliant Selyuk Ukrainian genius came to a sad end ... And how did the authorities of Absurdistan finally manage to learn the sad truth of the peremog?

      The tape is, of course, an authority admitted to the state secret. All this news from "sources", as a rule, is complete nonsense, a la the nuclear cruiser Kuznetsov.

          There is not a word about Zircon, you never know which engine they tested, despite the fact that they tested the engine, not the rocket.

    It was also lucky that the "stronghold" tanks were not riveted for the Armed Forces.

    The last 4 victims of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, because of which their leader, together with the Ukrosi howl, raised, isn’t the next test of this prodigy? They wrote something about the mortar mine, they said they tied the mine to the spear and threw it into the Sumerian trench.

    The class, manufacturer "Mayak" and JSC "Starokramatorskiy machine-building plant", supplied about 50% of components for "Molot". And there were also other suppliers. SKMZ is a giant machine-tool builder, he could do everything and so degenerated. "simple" heat treatment cannot be done. The vacation is deep, but the mechanic will go away. Steel alloyed money is worth. Salvage and greed are reaping their harvest.
