In a preliminary conspiracy, these persons purchased low-quality clothing for the Armed Forces of Ukraine at inflated prices, as well as property that does not meet the technical requirements

- said the pipe.

He clarified that we are talking about bulletproof vests 1-4-th protection classes Corsair MZs-1-4 ", which do not meet the stated requirements.

I will name the results of one of the examinations. This is a ballistic examination. According to its results, it was established that more than 70% of bulletproof vests are shot through by the types of weapons from which they must protect

- he explained.

As it turned out, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine purchased 20 thousand body armor worth a total of 176 million hryvnias, of which 7 thousand body armor turned out to be defective. It is alleged that military officials initially knew about the defective party. The cost of losses amounted to 61 million hryvnia.

      And where is it indicated that "under the new government"? The procurement period is not known. It may well be that they bought it "then" and they got it right now. Although it may well be under the new government. What is it better than the old? Nothing.

        So, after all, both authorities well knew that the main "aggressor" was not going to shoot in the near future, so why not "earn extra money" !?

          Take a calculator.
          176 million hryvnia, 20 thousand body armor. Total one bulletproof vest, when purchasing in bulk, to the native state (and the army does not pay taxes when purchasing) - 8800 hryvnias apiece.
          And now we climb to sales sites. How much does the corsair MZs body armor cost, at retail with all taxes ... Op-pa ... 5000 hryvnia ...

        Quote from Wiki:
        In 2011-2013, 150 Korsar-M3 bulletproof vests were delivered to the Ukrainian army [4], however, after the outbreak of hostilities in eastern Ukraine in the spring of 2014, the needs of the Ukrainian army in personal protective equipment increased. In May 2014, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine placed an order for the purchase of 24 thousand “Corsair” bulletproof vests [5].

        On June 20, 2014, additional funds were allocated from the reserve fund of the state budget of Ukraine (including 118 million hryvnias for the purchase of body armor and helmets) [4]. June 24, 2014 and. about. Colonel Oleksandr Danilchyk, Deputy Director of the Department of Public Procurement and Procurement of Procurement of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, said that body armor was already ordered from NPP TEMP-3000 at a price of 4200 hryvnia per body armor [4] [6].

        As of July 4, 2014, 7400 units were delivered to the armed forces of Ukraine. body armor "Corsair" [7], by July 8, 2014 - 7961 pcs. [8].

        On August 4, 2014, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine ordered for the Armed Forces of Ukraine another 9083 bulletproof vests “Corsair-M3-4” in the amount of 43,6 million hryvnia [9].

        On October 9, 2014, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine ordered another 1267 “Corsair-M3-4” bulletproof vests for the Ukrainian armed forces in the amount of 6,72 million hryvnias [10].

        December 12, 2014, the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine ordered another 2 thousand bulletproof vests “Corsair-MZs-1-4” in the amount of 9,94 million hryvnia [11].

        On February 3, 2015, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine ordered another 30 thousand Korsar-MZs-1-4 body armor of the 4th protection class for the armed forces of Ukraine at a price of 5145 hryvnias per unit; the total amount of the contract is 154,35 million hryvnias.

          Old anecdote:
          A siren is heard from the loudspeaker in the town square and the announcer's voice in a serious tone announces: “Citizens! Ukrainians! Today at 6 o’clock in the morning the Russian armed forces treacherously attacked our country! The war has begun!”

          Under the loudspeaker are an official and a worker. The official laments: “Lord, how many problems this war brings! Now we will urgently need to break seats on the train for the wife and children, and send them to the evacuation. Then agree on a freight car, load everything acquired with overwork and send the car "to evacuate his wife. Then get a ticket for himself on the train and leave for his wife and children."

          The worker says: "Yes. War brings a lot of problems."

          The official, looking at the worker in surprise: "Yes, what problems can you have ?! The machine took it to the front!"

                hi , Paul.
                Reminded me of a picture from the USSR.
                At the market, a battered peasant sells potato (somewhere around 5 kilograms and not the first freshness). The buyer approaches: "Otkel potato?"
                Peasant: "From the Eagle."
                Buyer: "Well, Oryol, are you so damned?"
                Peasant: "And we have a gouge prince (here I softened the characteristic - 4" bans "in a nickname)."
                As for the ruins, to put it mildly, blunders, I ceased to be surprised for a long time, our blunders are more worried about no less significant and no less frequent (which in general confirms that we are from the same nest). And it would have to be more thorough.

      The jury acquitted Major General Valery Znakhurko. According to investigators, he helped director of a commercial company, Tatyana Romanova, sell bulletproof vests to Russian military units in the North Caucasus that easily pierced fragments and pistol bullets. The jury decided that the guilt of Znakhurko and Romanova was not proven, and the general was released directly from the courtroom.


      The same thing happened in Russia. Only for this crime no one answered.

      I personally walked in Chechnya in this "left" body armor.

    In the events in the Donbass, as in a mirror, the events of our first Chechen company are reflected. When the generals were trading tactical operations cards. The price of our guys' lives became mansions on Rublevka.
    We won. This required a second war. A few more years of battles. Managed to break the ridge. Reconciled. They created an army of a new type.
    Svidomo able to do it? NO! Dushka is not enough.
    As then - during the Chechen period, they are again in other trenches ...

    In Russia, we had the same thing, several tens of thousands of bulletproof vests were delivered to Chechnya which weren’t even a bullet, they didn’t even keep fragments.

    The criminal case incidentally ended then - NOTHING.

    According to the investigation, Znakhurko, who in 1999 worked as the head of the supply department of the Main Rocket and Artillery Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, received from the command the task of finding a company - a supplier of body armor and concluding an agreement with her. The vests that the general was supposed to buy for the military were intended for officers and soldiers of the Ground Forces participating in hostilities in the North Caucasus.

    Znakhurko concluded an agreement with ZAO Artess, co-owner of which was Romanova. According to the investigation, until the general order was received, this multidisciplinary company was not engaged in sewing body armor, but after the conclusion of the contract a special workshop was created there.

    Romanova and Znakhurko supplied military units with bulletproof vests for six years - until 2005. Manufacturers making one vest cost a little more than 200 rubles.

    According to investigators, due to the actions of Znakhurko and Romanova, the state budget missed 203 million rubles. Of these, 110 million were spent on the manufacture of vests, and 93 million were accused by the accused.

    In 2005, military investigators decided to conduct an independent examination, checking several vests from a party that entered one of the SKVO units. Bullets and splinters pierced the armor through, and after more extensive checks from the warehouses seized 14 thousand body armor manufactured by Artess. The general was removed from office, in 2006 he resigned from the army, and at the end of 2008 was taken into custody.

    The jury decided that the guilt of Znakhurko and Romanova was not proven, and the general was released directly from the courtroom.


    Remember this.
