Ukraine secretly purchased eight Russian Armed Forces for transport An-124 "Ruslan"


The Ukrainian state enterprise "Antonov", part of the state company "Ukroboronprom", secretly purchased eight auxiliary power units (APU) of Russian production for heavy long-range transport aircraft An-124 "Ruslan", reports RIA News".


At the same time, the current Ukrainian authorities continue to stubbornly declare in the public plane their rejection of military-technical cooperation with Russia. In fact, since 2015, Kiev has been purchasing the necessary equipment from Russia through third countries, without advertising what is happening.

For example, the aforementioned Antonov State Enterprise and Aerogulf FZC from OAZ entered into an agreement 01 / 01-20 dated June 3, 2020 for the purchase of eight auxiliary gas turbine engines TA18-200-124 for An-124-100 aircraft. The manufacturer of these engines is JSC NPP Aerosila (Stupino, Moscow Region). The total transaction value is $ 4,16 million.

Moreover, it is not the first time that Antonov has cooperated with Aerogulf FZC. In 2019, a Ukrainian state-owned company purchased one such engine for $ 499 thousand, and in 2020 the price of one engine increased to $ 520 thousand. In the same 2019, Antonov SE purchased generators for TA18-200-124 engines from Aerogulf FZC for $ 180 thousand.

It should be noted that entrepreneurs, Ukrainian officials and heads of state-owned companies profit from such a business, because in the end, the consumer or the state budget of Ukraine pays for everything. And this will continue until Kiev returns to normal cooperation with Moscow, which will make Ukrainian products more competitive.

    - Yes .... - how is this possible ??? - Yes, this cannot be ... - Yes, it's just unreal ...
    - But for me personally, too, somehow everything is "unrealistic to read it" ...
    - Just now, personally, I'm in the subject:

    "Brothers Slavs" and other traitors: how Bulgarians sabotage Russian energy projects
    So they would be allowed ...

    - Ha ... - So for this there is "commercial cunning", all kinds of front companies (third, fourth); who buy, then resell there ... - "where necessary" ... etc ...
    - And all kinds of bribery and bribes ... - And money ... - "They don't smell" ...

    - I have already mentioned (and rather superficially) the whole mechanics of "similar acts" ...
    - But ... but ... but so many in response ... - "weighty reasonable objections" ... - and how many minuses ... - Yeah ...
    - It turns out ... - everything is quite simple ...

    Well, yes, isn't Russia forced to do the same because of the sanctions? It's just business.

    Is this some kind of fundamental news?
    The Ukrainian Armed Forces have been fighting for the seventh year on diesel fuel, either Russian or made from Russian oil. There is simply no other.

      Ukraine secretly bought ...

      Secretly it would be necessary to put in quotes, we are not talking about ballpoint pens. In general, from the very beginning, "Russia secretly sold to Ukroboronprom ... because this is just a business and money does not smell like a cadaver." Farce.

    Well, on what basis did Mr. Putin and the company allow such transactions, from which the Russian Federation, apart from harm, does not shine ?!

    To understand what is at stake ...

    The APU of an aircraft is usually a relatively small gas turbine engine used to generate electricity, creating pressure in the hydraulic system and air conditioning while the aircraft is on the ground, starting the main engines, usually using compressed air taken from the APU compressor


    The Russians sold several generators to the Arabs. Civilian products ... Something like this:

    http://aerosila.ru/products/vspomogatelnye-gazoturbinnye-dvigateli/vgtd-ta18-200klass-ekvivalentnoj-moshhnosti-350-kvt

    The Arabs sold this economy to Ukraine ... I find it difficult to assess how they differ from models for other aircraft, but I think not much. Did you understand for whom they were ultimately intended? Judging by the numbers in the marking "124" I think yes, at least they guessed. Although I do not exclude that they can be operated on the ground. Was it worth it to refuse to sell to the Arabs? Not sure ... Actually why? The sellers had to look them straight in the eyes and ask - would you by chance sell them to the Ukrainians? I doubt that this product is prohibited for export. Something like that...

      123, as always, clumsily otmazyvayut our rogues))). In the same article a little below we read that this is not the first such transaction. Everything can be written in the contract, if you didn't know. Remember kipish was with Siemens turbines in the Crimea? Are you not from United Russia?

        I remember the turbines, but we didn't buy them through the Arabs. By the way, can you remind me how the Europeans punished Siemens? Now take the Arabs to run over or punish the plant in Stupino? If the plant, it is advisable to indicate what they violated ....
        Yes, it says below that this is not the first deal, but next to it there is an article about the Be-200 how they want to supply them to the fleet. Not in the know by chance how they are made now? As far as I remember, no one has ever seen the new PD-10 engine, and they decided not to install the French one. I propose to practice your wit and offer several answers on the topic - what does he fly on? winked



        Will you be out of bulk for an hour?

          He shook the topic and took it aside. Exercise with yourself, I went to dinner, just came home from work. By the way, I, by the way, only now, after all the recent events, realized that all Navalny is also necessary. Of course, he moves on someone's order and for money. But, if there are no such people, such 123 will remain and we will again grab the 90s. Criticism is needed.

      I had to look them straight in the eyes and ask - and you will not sell them to Ukrainians by accident?

      And for the ships they could not buy motors in the same way, "without looking in the eyes." Well, you never know why the Arabs need ship turbines, maybe they want to artificially create and study sandstorms.

        Maybe they could, maybe they tried, but it didn't work out, otherwise the frigates for the Black Sea Fleet would have been completed.
        Now they are no longer needed.
        What I wanted to say ...
        Look at the link above, on the manufacturer's website several models, judging by the markings, are made for a specific aircraft model. The presence of the numbers "124" in it at least prompts some reflections, because not so many countries operate the An-124. Although there are no formal obstacles to selling. In general, I meant that "the severity of the law is mitigated by the non-binding nature of its execution," in the sense that, despite the prohibitions, from time to time both parties buy and sell something in roundabout ways, something that is difficult to do without. Apparently, they don't "freeze their ears" out of principle. And this "something" may well be the engines for a specific Be-200 in the video, because it is being built right now and some engines should be installed on it ... and now, not later ... when the new PD-10 will do. Apparently, not everything is simple .. we do not have much information to draw conclusions. I'll try to explain it using the oil industry as an example. There is a special procedure for the sale of oil products to Ukraine. For a specific delivery, you must obtain permission from the government. As a result, there were practically no direct supplies ... But supplies went through the territory of Belarus, Lukashenka somehow blurted out in a rage ... they sell and supply Russian companies through his territory and even named Rosneft. From the point of view of companies, everything is clear, there was an opportunity to buy and sell something, bypassing sanctions and restrictions through a "free portal" and they did it without embarrassment at all. As long as this customs "Tortuga" will operate, nothing will change. It will not work to squeeze Ukraine, everything that is needed will be freely bought or sold and transported through Belarus. Subsequently, Lukashenka began to accustom him to "porridge on the water", the supply of oil products to Ukraine increased, Belarusian companies began to squeeze out of the market, it came to that during the "coronpsychosis" sales stopped almost everywhere and fuel from Belarusian refineries began to be "brotherly" driven to Russia at dumping prices until supplies were banned. If I'm not mistaken, Mishustin turned off the tap.

          Maybe they could, maybe they tried, but it didn't work ...

          That's right, because the other side doesn't care about those "eyes", they do not intend to play with spillikins and they have control. So it is in this case. It's just that, unlike in other countries, there is apparently not so much predominance of conscience over greed or elementary ethics on the sidelines of the government. Armament or equipment - whatever and to anyone, the main thing is that the coin drips loudly into the pocket. This illegibility will still play a cruel joke. The same labeling of something there with "124" makes it clear what the product is for, that's all. We want to help it fly, so we sell it, we don’t want it - it will stand in a hangar without a power plant and there is an option that some kind of "apparatus" designed to accelerate reconciliation in Donbass will not be brought from overseas in time. But you can stimulate anyone you need with a "dollar", they will make an exception to the rule and all the cases. Business - money doesn't smell.

    Rejoice at Putin. Why shouldn't he be happy, he is not hiding in the basements. It is not under his windows that the Nazis walk around and drive around in Russian diesel fuel, only grandmothers flow into his pocket. And here we are surprised at all kinds of political economic somersaults. gorenina91, don't worry too much. We are all doomed anyway. World War 3 - and we lost, and strangers will mock us, or World War 3 we will win and our own people will mock us. This has already happened.

    I am amazed at you, the audience, they are not used to turning on their heads. What matters is Putin here, is he a clairvoyant and omnipotent? He must follow everything and know everything that is going on in the country, who sold what to whom, did or whispered in his ear. Children graze here, or something.

      He appoints or approves key figures, and those should work further down the chain. It is his responsibility to control them. He is responsible for everything - he is the president, if anything. And not like me and you - the townsfolk. If he cannot, he must leave. When he needs to PR, he is a plug in any barrel. He extinguishes fires, takes out amphorae, and flies with Siberian Cranes. During a straight line, he resolves the problems of the level of the collective farm chairman. Do you think this is normal?
