Press of Ukraine: Armament for the Armed Forces of Ukraine is not repaired or modernized

45

Since the beginning of 2021, private and state defense enterprises of Ukraine have become hostages of bureaucrats and the indifference of officials at different levels. Thus, the bureaucracy defeated the defense industry.


This opinion is expressed by Sergei Zgurets in his article published by the Ukrainian edition of Defense Express.

The Ukrainian press claims that as a result of the actions and inaction of officials, plans for the repair of equipment and weapons in various branches and services of the Armed Forces were thwarted. Since the beginning of the year, enterprises have made a forced pause, which has been going on for five months. It is worth clarifying that this does not apply to the state defense order, which provides for the purchase and production of fundamentally new or radically modernized samples.

For the Ukrainian defense industry, everything went awry after the Cabinet of Ministers at the end of last year approved the decision to amend Resolution No. 641 regarding the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. They meant that for the period of the quarantine, the use of budgetary funds is allowed only for prepayment of goods and services purchased to combat the infection.

Thus, the purchase of equipment and weapons for the Armed Forces of Ukraine would be a violation of this decree. Soon the officials changed their minds and allowed military supplies, making the appropriate amendments to the decree. But these changes did not affect the repair and modernization of weapons and equipment, leaving their funding banned.

As a result, weapons for the Armed Forces of Ukraine are not being modernized or repaired today. And even when they paid attention to it, allowing the work to resume, it did not change much. After all, officials have added new restrictions on the amount of prepayment and reporting deadlines for enterprises. If earlier they were allocated 80 percent of the advance payment for the purchase of components, now this figure has been reduced to 30 percent. And in these conditions, enterprises prefer to refuse contracts for the repair of military equipment.

At the same time, the armament and equipment of the Armed Forces of Ukraine has been in need of repairs and modernization for a long time. In particular, at the end of last year, Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine Oleg Urusky spoke about this problem.

        As it is not clear in the article (s) it is written. Just yesterday I read that KHBTZ handed over to the Ukrainian Armed Forces a batch of overhauled T - 64s. The photo shows 5 shipped vehicles. And since the beginning of the year, together with DBTZ, 40 tanks have been handed over.
        Or does Zgurets "cry" only about private companies?

          These "overhauled" are a drop in the bucket. And the tolerable saturation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine with equipment is carried out due to the replenishment of equipment from Eastern European and Western "friends". What large-scale repairs and upgrades in a stranded and comatose country? No, the country will probably not disappear, albeit in a truncated, truncated form. But the state in it will be different. Not pro-American / pro-Western Bandera, but normal. "America is with us! The West will help us!" will remain in the past.

            I disagree. The point is not in Ukraine as such, in the very ideology of Ukrainians. They got the tidbit of the Soviet empire, and how did they dispose of it? What will be in place of Ukraine (albeit in a truncated form), if Ukrainians populate it, it will still remain Ukraine. For they cannot think otherwise.

              You, apparently, are outside and judge on the basis of your reflections. I am from within and on the basis of evidence that is reliable and NOT published by the Bandera media. About 75% VS pro-American government and Bandera and for normal relations with Russia was and is... And about the Ukrainians, the "united Ukraine", are discussed by the Bandera themselves and their Russian counterparts, provocateurs. DO NOT listen to nonsense! smile

                Do not tell nonsense yourself. The elections of 2014 and 2019 dispelled the last vestiges of faith in storytellers like you. Twice 90% of Ukrainians voted for open Nazis and Russophobes like Poroshenko, Tymoshenko, Tyagnibok, Lyazhko, Hrytsenko, Yarosh and Zelensky, who later joined them. Moreover, the Ukrainians knew very well their Nazi beliefs, and nevertheless voted for them, which means that 90% of Ukrainians support their Russophobic views.

                I judge just the very thing from the inside. The fact is that a generation has already grown up that, apart from Ukraine, has not seen anything in life. In conversations with them, you clearly understand that daily brainwashing, rewritten history, education in the language and constant talk about the fact that someone attacked them, is already firmly imprinted in their heads. I'm talking about the southeast. It is generally better not to remember what is going on in the minds of people further to the west. The Ukrainians, rejecting everything Soviet, chose their own ideology, which is now blood from the blood of the current "Ukrainian nation". I'm not even talking about Bandera now, but about their attitude towards neighbors, towards themselves, towards life and their own "state" in general. This is clearly shown by the thirty-year history of Ukrainian "statehood". 75% about which you write is the older generation, mainly of the urban population, of the southeast. However, this is not all of Ukraine. According to my estimates, in Ukraine as a whole, the proportion is different. 40% for a normal relationship, 60% against. Or maybe 30 to 70.

                  It looks like you are right. I communicate with graduates who were assigned to Ukraine, still Soviet, in the late 70s. Even their brains are thoroughly washed. For Crimea, anger emanate, but that "Bandera is their hero!" - are offended. And they are over 60 already.

    On repairs, you especially do not clear up, the money is not the same and you can run into a scandal.
    As for the development of weapons and modernization, it all depends on the existing foreign investors. Pakistan. KSA, Turkey.

        They help, but not Ukraine. Previously, there were engines from Zap. Sich, turbines from Nikolaev, products from Yuzhmash, products from Antonov. So the money was very big.
        So most likely they are helping the West, buying from him from threads for ammunition to artillery systems.

    The author forgot to say that apart from the lack of repairs, everything that is not fixed "tightly" is stolen and drunk. Diesel fuel and gasoline go "to the left" simply in cosmic volumes. In the Kalanchak region, Kherson region, there is a tank battalion. Residents of neighboring villages have already forgotten when they were last at the gas station))))

    "Press of Ukraine: Armament for the Armed Forces of Ukraine is not repaired or modernized"
    But they are successfully selling, stuffing their pockets. "It is worth noting that in the last year alone, Ukraine has sold more than 30 T-72 tanks and even several fighters. In addition, as you know, Kiev" gave away "rifles and carbines with discounts. For example, in 2014 more than 29 thousand pieces of such weapons were sold a year.
    The patriots are outraged not only by the fact that Kiev is selling the necessary weapons to the Ukrainian Armed Forces, but also by the fact that all the money ends up in the pockets of the top government, including Poroshenko and Turchinov. "
    And as a result of the sale: in the 128th brigade of the Ukrainian Armed Forces: "Also, observers noted the fact that four T-72 tanks are in disarmed condition, tracks have been removed from combat vehicles, armor protection is partially missing, and engines have been removed on two tanks.
    From the explanations of the commander of the brigade Voichenko to the commander of the OTG "Sever", the tanks were dismantled in order to restore the combat readiness of the tank battalion, in which more than ten weapons are currently defective, and he does not know the location of the missing artillery pieces, since during the rotation of the formation with 24 brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, these guns were no longer in storage locations. An official investigation has been ordered on this fact. "
