The largest arms deal of Ukraine. How to get rich 11 intermediaries



Armory the deal between Kiev and Baghdad six years ago became the largest in all history Ukrainian independence. Under the contract from 25 September, 2009 of the year, concluded between the Ministry of Defense of Iraq and the state enterprise Progress Specialized Foreign Trade Company (in the structure of the Ukrspecexport state concern), Ukraine has committed to repair six MI-8T helicopters worth $ 3,6 million AN-32B aircraft for 99 million dollars, as well as 420 units of wheeled armored personnel carriers BTR-4 and vehicles based on it for 457,5 million dollars.

It was expected that in the future new treaties would follow - in zero Iraq seriously engaged in its defense capability, and in Ukraine they hoped to earn about the supply of 2,5 billion dollars to this country. Six years later, the “golden mountains” were covered in ashes: the Ukrainians did not meet the deadlines, having completed less than half of the order, and the prosecutor’s office came to the conclusion that the deal with Baghdad turned out to be one of the most corrupt in the history of the Ukrainian defense industry.

Now law enforcement agencies are investigating the involvement of the Ukrainian side in the 11 arms deal with foreign intermediaries who have earned on the military contract 46 million dollars. Investigators are sure that most of them performed only fictitious functions.

Upon the expiry of six years from the date of signing, the outcome of the contract is as follows: under the specified contracts, Ukrainian Progress received 261,85 million dollars. For this money, the defense industrial complex of Ukraine manufactured six AN-32B and 128 BTR-4E aircraft, of which only 88 was delivered to the customer, the rest of the vehicles were not transferred.

This became known from the definition of the Kiev Pechersk Court of 25 September 2015.

Согласно этому документу, в 2009-2013 годах госпредприятие СВТФ «Прогресс» для выполнения заключенных с Минобороны Ирака контрактов привлекло 11 посреднических фирм для оказания агентских, юридических и других услуг компании Universal Investment Group (США), Jankovic & Associates. Inc. (США), Mirage Sarl (Ливан, Бейрут), AL-Jar trading FZCO (ОАЭ Дубаи), Company Paragon Impex Ltd (Великобритания, Лондон), Wahi AL-Abda'a Co (Ирак), Lionel Europe Corporation (Великобритания Лондон), Runestone Partners LLC (США), Dinet Group LTD (Ливан, Бейрут), Rawat Al-Moruge (Ирак), Al Khairat (Ирак) Al Arabia Co (Ирак). По версии следствия, большинство из них заявленные услуги не оказывало.

As the investigators calculated, out of the half-billion contract amount, “about 82 million dollars by the top managers of the SVTF Progress GP was planned to spend outside the customs territory of Ukraine to pay for legal, consulting and other services.” However, the total amount turned out to be half as much due to non-fulfillment of obligations.

Distribution of funds in accordance with acts of work performed under agency agreements / contracts

Al-Jar Trading FZCO received - $ 8,03 million;

Universal Investment Group, Inc. / Jankovic & Associates. Inc. – $9,32млн.;

Company Paragon Impex Ltd. - $ 12,21 million;

Runestone Partners LLC $ 750 thousand;

Mirage Sarl $ 9,0 million and 186 thousand euros;

Lionel Europe Corporation - $ 2,24 million;

Dinet Group Ltd - $ 6,35 million


What are some of these firms to understand the example of the "London" company Lionel Europe Corporation. It is not in the list of companies registered in the UK House Companies Registry. Also, it is not among the previously liquidated enterprises.

True, not all of the intermediaries were pocket.

В своем расследовании Генпрокуратура ссылается на статью трехлетней давности под названием US court case poses new threat to huge Ukraine-Iraq arms deal, опубликованной на зарубежном сайте www.bne.eu. Согласно обнародованной в ней информации, услуги по предоставлению агентских, юридических и других услуг по внешнеэкономическим контрактам между ГП СВТФ «Прогресс» и Министерством обороны Ирака осуществлялись исключительно гражданами США – Говардом Лоури (Howard Lowry), Патриком Лоури (Patrick Lowry) и компаниями Tariq AL-Waffa for General Trading & Trading Agencies Company. Этот факт был установлен решением суда присяжных Сан-Антонио (Западный Техас, США) 26 августа 2010 года (Case Number: 5: 2010cv00713) по иску последних к фирмам Jankovic & Associates. Inc. и Universal Investment Group.



The presence of American intermediaries in the Ukrainian-Iraqi deal was legitimate. Baghdad bought Ukrainian equipment and weapons with financial support from the US State Department. And, accordingly, the intermediary companies in the arms deal were not chosen without the participation of Washington.

Как писало www.bne.eu, одним из архитекторов сделки между Украиной и Ираком стал бизнесмен Говард Лоури, работавший на Ближнем Востоке с начала нулевых. Он зарабатывал в Ираке на поиске заказов для американских компаний. Именно его исковые требования сейчас активно изучают в Генеральной прокуратуре Украины, поскольку он инициировал первые встречи между украинскими продавцами оружия и иракскими военными семь лет назад. Значимую роль в этой сделке сыграл также и другой американец украинского просхождения – Олег Янкович (Oleg Jankovic), владелец вашингтонской Jankovic & Associates. У Лоури с ним был письменный договор на 50% комиссионных от контрактов, но затем Янкович вытеснил Лоури из сделки не без помощи украинцев.

Three years ago, the San Antonio court awarded businessman Lowry with a colossal compensation of $ 61,75 million, which he now owes Ukrainian-American brokers. The mentioned article notes that the trial provoked a change of mediators between Ukraine and Iraq after President Viktor Yanukovych came to power.

This, in particular, was previously reported by Ukrainskaya Pravda, citing its sources. They say, Dmitry Salamatin, director general of Ukrspetsexport state concern, did not allow one of the American intermediaries to pay for services.

The rotation of the intermediaries behind the scenes by Yanukovych’s team failed - a scandal immediately flared up. In the 2011 year, Kiev was very late to send the first batch of 26 armored vehicles to Baghdad, and the Iraqi authorities refused to accept the next delivery (from 62 BTR). The formal cause was the technical defects identified during the inspection.

Позже вторая партия все же была отправлена и «благодарить» за это, похоже, следует близкого к Януковичу экс-регионала Юрия Иванющенко. Дело в том, что две американские компании из приведенного выше списка посредников – Universal Investment Group (официальный представитель – украинец Николай Каранько) и Jankovic & Associates – в 2011 году оказывали важные услуги Юрию Иванющенко. Подтверждающие документы четыре года назад оказались в распоряжении «Украинской правды». Сомнительное прошлое этого донецкого бизнесмена мешало ему получить визу США и американские лоббисты тогда взялись ему помочь.

And to the public, the Ukrainian authorities made “guilty” the Hero of Ukraine Mikhail Borisyuk, the general designer of the design bureau for them. A. A. Morozov - the main developer of armored vehicles and artillery systems of Ukraine. Salamatin signed an order for his dismissal in February 2011 of the year for offsetting the deadlines for the delivery of 11 armored personnel carriers and the marriage.

Now the Prosecutor General’s Office is investigating the circumstances of the “commission by the heads of Ukrspetsexport, the state enterprise Progress, the state-owned foreign trade company, the Kharkiv Design Bureau for Mechanical Engineering named after them. A.A. Morozov "(SE" KMDB them. Morozov ") facts of official forgery and abuse of official position, which led to the non-fulfillment of large-scale foreign economic contracts".

      Сбу с верхов это все организовывало по просьбе зарубежных активных "партнеров" с 95-го.Низы пили горилку, а потом другая горилка сделала их.Места складирования зачищались пожарами еще до грузинской эпопеи.Там вообще можно все склады ВС рассматривать как витрину магазина для тех у кого есть входной билет. Причем "хозяйки" сильно ошибаются что все продажи контролируют bully

    The bodies of the BTR-4 were in cracks, so Iraq refused to accept them. Our vehicles were sent to the ATO zone.

        It is good that they did not send to the anti-terrorist operation zone, otherwise all the militia would be equipped with defective equipment.

    They surprised the corruption component of this deal. In Ukraine, there is not a single industry left where this corruption has not blossomed violently fertilized by high-ranking Ukrainian officials. Everything is natural. And Iraq is a lesson for the future.

    Not at all surprised. The country of Thieves, Freeloaders and now bandits. Where is the president of the country a thief, the prime thief. The government is so corrupt that it does not make sense to deal with this phenomenon. How can you put yourself in jail? During the USSR, fed at his expense. How it broke up - they climbed the other way to lick your ass faster, if only they gave a cookie. Neither their own policies, nor their own dignity.

    Serdyukov with Vasiliev’s arms were not traded, they weren’t military property. Which, of course, does not justify them. And these ... They never had anything holy.

    The conclusion arising from the article: Ruins have neither the capabilities nor the resources nor the specialists to fulfill a more or less significant contract for the production of military equipment, but what they already sold from the union ... these are the realities of the military-industrial complex and the Defense Ministry of Ruins .. .and they all jump: ...

    I think the BND and the CIA have already completely calculated the whole system, but it’s not clear with what sauce they give information to such figures as Obama and Merkel. This is already visible to the naked eye as the money goes away and questions are asked not only in the media. For a year, they will push water in a mortar .. ..........!

    А у нас Сердюков и Васильева в десять раз больше украли и что? И это лишь то, что смогли пришить. А распил на космодроме "Восточный"? Там не один ярд увели, причем никого, даже какого-нибудь стрелочника не посадили, не говоря уж о ком-то из серьезных персон. А "растворение" денег из ЦБ, Сбербанка и ВТБ? Так что нам и самим есть чем "гордиться".
