Ukraine confiscates USD 5.5 million in Russian company's helicopter components
The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) has confiscated assets of a Russian defense company that manufactures components for combat helicopters amounting to USD 5.5 million
The SBU reported the information.
Based on the SBU materials, the High Anti-Corruption Court upheld the claim of the Ministry of Justice to transfer the products of the Russian company Rostvertol to the revenue of Ukraine.
The case concerns a batch of components for combat helicopter control systems, the total value of which is almost USD 5.5 million. The products were manufactured by one of Lviv's plants for the Rostov company under a contract dated 2011.
Rostvertol is one of the key enterprises of the Russian military-industrial complex that produces helicopters for the Russian occupying groups.
The Russian company had hoped to receive its order from the Ukrainian plant back in 2014, before the aggressor country's invasion. However, SBU counterintelligence officers blocked the transfer of helicopter components to Russia.
Following the confiscation of the seized products, the SBU will initiate the transfer of technological components in favor of arms production for the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
On Friday, September 8, media reported that Estonia plans to become the first EU country to legalize the transfer of confiscated Russian assets to Ukraine.
