The break with Russia deprived Ukraine of a leading defense plant

Over the past six years, the state-owned enterprise “Production Association“ Southern Machine-Building Plant ”named after A. Makarov” (Yuzhmash), one of the leaders of the Ukrainian military-industrial complex, producing space rocket machineryis in deep crisis. It is reported by the Ukrainian online edition "".

It is noted that the company is chronically short of orders and funds, so workers are being reduced. They promised to rectify the situation, as the previous president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, who had successfully been in power for the whole five-year period, and the new head of state, Vladimir Zelensky, who has been at his post for about a year. However, for their words, no action aimed at changing the situation was followed.

Yuzhmash is located in the Dnieper (formerly Dnipropetrovsk) and the enterprise was greatly damaged by the gap in tradeeconomic relations with Russia. It is said that the enterprise, during the conflict in Donbass, did not receive defense orders from the state, although there were promises. In this regard, the enterprise has accumulated many months of wage arrears to its employees.

Some workers have not received the money due since spring 2019. Some employees work only one day a week. So the "optimization" of staff is understandable. At the same time, heating in some shops of the enterprise disappeared five years ago.

Both Poroshenko and Zelensky were at the enterprise. They carefully listened to questions that worried workers, nodded understandingly, and made promises. At the same time, Yuzhmash offered the state guided high-precision weapons, but the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine turned out to be indifferent to him.

The situation at the enterprise is also aggravated by the fact that liquid rocket fuel, heptyl, is stored on its territory. The company simply does not have money for its disposal. At the same time, due to debts, the company can be disconnected from electricity, which can damage the safety of the storage and lead to a disaster, from which about 100 thousand residents of the city can suffer.

    And why should the problems of Aboriginal people concern us. Themselves have done business, even if they themselves disentangle. There are enough problems in Russia.

    Greed! To steal from all over the Union everything to which the little hands reach and rot.
    This is so in Ukrainian.
    But the trouble is that they always do this, and those around them learn nothing.
    This is really scary !!!

    Personally, I always spoke, I speak and I will speak. In 2014, Putin was to take away not only CRIMEA, but if not all of Ukraine, then Russian lands and cities. Because it is Russian land and Russian people! But Putin was scared. And now these are other people, and the country is hostile to Russia, although they speak Russian. So now, the worse, the better Russia.

    Our grandfathers called the city of Dnepropetrovsk.
    Ukrainians began to call him Dnipro.
    Why are we now writing the Dnieper and in brackets Dnipropetrovsk?
    Why do we forget the geographical names themselves, the given territories by our ancestors and take overseas? Why do we tolerate clumsy translations? There is no such term in Russian - it's a rotten otmaz! There is no work by the authorities to standardize the terms of the Russian language and connivance (it’s understandable that the Slave must understand as quickly and accurately as possible what the owner orders, it’s more convenient to study his instructions! Well, it’s not for the master to study African dialects, Arabic, Indian, Slavic, he needs to rest, so that others, like a carrot, were drawn to his lifestyle) and therefore the media produce rot seeds.
    Whom do we respect? Them or yourself? The one who does not respect himself, but "respects" another - does not respect, but fawns. Let the Ukrainians create a new city, call it Dnipro, and I will be categorically against it if someone calls it differently.
    And on the topic - and therefore it cannot be otherwise.
