Valerii Riabykh, military expert and Defense Express development director, has emphasized that attacks on defense companies should be stopped and conditions for development should be created

He said this on Espreso TV. 

"Everyone understands that the Luch Design Bureau is the only fully operational enterprise in Ukraine. The company generates specific products that make Ukrainian weapons famous. The Luch Design Bureau has demonstrated its work not only in wartime, but also before that it was independent. All the funds received in the form of profits are invested in the business, despite the lack of support from the state," emphasized Riabykh.

According to the military expert, it is necessary to stop attacks on defense companies and create conditions for their development.

"It should be noted that such actions in wartime can lead to hell. Therefore, we must stop such attacks on defense companies and create all conditions for development. Moreover, this is our main lifeline that can ensure security," emphasized Riabykh.

  • The Luch Design Bureau is a developer and manufacturer of anti-tank systems and missiles for them. We are talking about the Stugna and Corsair missile systems, the Vilkha air defense system, the already famous Neptune anti-ship system, and the Bohdana self-propelled artillery system. It was this enterprise in Kyiv that Russian aggressors were among the first to try to destroy in mid-March 2022. However, the equipment, spare parts, and missiles were successfully evacuated.

  • On September 19, the state-owned enterprise sent official letters to the authorities asking them to resolve the State Audit Service's findings, which complicate the development and production of the Weapon of Victory, in accordance with the law.

  • The State Audit Service has once again come to inspect the state-owned Luch Design Bureau, which produces important weapons for the Armed Forces. The company has asked the government to impose a moratorium on inspections.
