The SSU detained the president of the industrial giant Motor Sich on suspicion of working in the Russian Federation

Employees of the Security Service detained the president of JSC “Motor Sich” and the head of the Department of Foreign Economic Activities of this company.

They were charged with two articles of the Criminal Code of Ukraine:

  • Art. 111-1 (collaborative activity);
  • Art. 111-2 (assistance to the aggressor state).

The detention took place as part of criminal proceedings regarding the illegal supply by Motor Sich of military goods for Russian attack aircraft.

According to the investigation materials, the management of the plant located in Zaporizhzhia was involved in the embezzlement. The officials acted in collaboration with representatives of the Russian corporation Rostec, which is close to the Kremlin and is one of the main producers of weapons for the Soviet Union.

Criminals have established international channels for illegally supplying wholesale batches of Ukrainian aircraft engines to the aggressor country.

The occupiers used the obtained products for the production and repair of Russian attack helicopters of the type:

  • Mi-8AMTSh-VN “Sapsan”;
  • KA-52 “Alligator”;
  • Mi-28N “Night Hunter”.

It was established that the invaders massively used the relevant models of army aviation for a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. This is confirmed by numerous facts of the destruction of these enemy combat helicopters by our defenders.

To circumvent the established restrictions on trade with the Russian Federation, the organizers of the scheme used controlled commercial structures in three countries of the Middle East, Europe and East Asia. These companies allegedly sent “orders” to the Ukrainian manufacturer for the needs of a foreign party.

However, after receiving the military products, the “intermediaries” transported them to Russia. The enemy also used its foreign accomplices to repair and maintain its own aircraft using Ukrainian spare parts.

In the course of the investigation, the employees of the Security Service identified all the organizers of the riots, documented their criminal actions, and conducted comprehensive measures to bring the culprits to justice.

Measures to expose and block offenses were carried out by employees of the Counterintelligence Department and the Main Investigative Department of the SBU under the procedural guidance of the Prosecutor General’s Office.
