SSU blocks operation of sanctioned plant that planned to resume supplies to russian military-industrial complex (video)

The Security Service of Ukraine has blocked the operation of a sanctioned plant that was going to resume supplies to the russian military-industrial complex.

This plant in Dnipro produced components for aircraft, missile systems and submarines, as well as dual-use goods.

In 2021 alone, it produced 340 tons of merchandise worth over UAH 450 mln (USD 15.2 mln).

According to the investigation, the goods were delivered to russia, where occupiers redistributed the products among their military plants and other entities of the military-industrial complex.

The founder of the plant is a russian corporation specializing in production and modernization of weapons and military equipment. Last year, it was sanctioned by the National Security and Defence Council.

But now, in order to circumvent the applied sanctions, the russian side wanted to reregister the plant to a Ukrainian legal entity and continue its work to the detriment of Ukraine’s national security.

The SSU prevented this and blocked the operation of the enterprise.

Criminal proceedings have been opened under Article 110-2 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. The investigation is underway.
