"In total during the 1st quarter of 2020 the enterprises coordinated by the Department of Armored Vehicles of Ukroboronprom have fulfilled the production plan worth more than UAH 1.7 billion. Compared to the same period last year, this is an increase of about 2.5 times! Kyiv Armored Plant, Malyshev Plant and Kharkiv Machine-Building Design Bureau have become champions - these enterprises have shown the most noticeable increase in production due to the change of management of these plants and the new management approaches initiated by Ukroboronprom ", - said Igor Fomenko, Ukroboronprom Deputy Director General for Production.

In particular, in January-April 2020, the volume of production at the Malyshev Plant amounted to UAH 301 million, which is 2.4 times greater than in the same period last year. Among other things, 26 tank engines have been manufactured at the Malyshev plant this year: 6 in January, 10 in February and 10 in March.

"Currently, new agreements are being signed by the Concern's armored vehicles enterprises with the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine within the framework of the new State Defense Order. We expect that despite the quarantine we will maintain production rates at key enterprises involved in the State Defense Order fulfillment. To make the work of Ukroboronprom’s armored vehicles enterprises even more efficient in the future, we are working on a strategy to create a state armored vehicles business unit that will unite enterprises that repair equipment, manufacture components, do research and create the final product. It will be a full production cycle", - Fomenko commented on the plans to transform the Concern.
