The underground storage house contained 19 tank engines and other components for armored vehicles with a total value of about $ 1.5 million.

This property is enough to repair half of the tank battalion.

The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) has established that a 61-year-old Kharkiv resident set up an illegal hiding place. He conspired with employees of local military-industrial complex enterprises and organized the theft and accumulation of 5TDFA tank engines.

According to the SBU, the units were planned to be handed over to Russian troops in the event of their infiltration into Kharkiv. Russian T-64 tanks are still equipped with engines of this modification.

Significantly modernized higher power engines have been installed on Ukrainian tanks of this arrangement since the beginning of the 2000s.

The Security Service of Ukraine investigators have launched criminal proceedings under Art. 111 of the Criminal Code (treason committed under martial law).

Investigative and operational measures are underway to identify all persons involved in the crime.
