The Ukrainian-Iraqi contract for the supply of BTR-4, manufactured at the Kharkov plant named after Malyshev, is carried out in the normal mode. This was reported to the correspondent by the deputy chairman of the Kharkiv Regional State Administration Andrei Mochenkov.
“We have sufficient optimism. Iraq agreed to accept another batch of BTR-4,” he said.
Recall that in early August, the Ukrainian media spread information about the alleged refusal of the Iraqi side to accept the next batch of BTR-4. Journalists, citing a representative of the Odessa company Varamar, which was transporting armored vehicles, reported that the Iraqis had refused to unload armored personnel carriers ashore due to the alleged cracks in the hulls. Since April, the ship has been in neutral waters near Iraq.
The contract between Ukraine and Iraq involves the supply of 450 units of BTR-4 units, which are manufactured by the Kharkov Malyshev plant. Since 2010, almost 100 units of equipment have been delivered to Iraq.
