Kyiv: Today, December 27, Prime Minister Vladimir Groysman called on the head of "Ukrobornprom" Roman Romanov to resign because of problems with payment of wages at a number of enterprises that are part of the concern. Groysman said this during a government meeting.
"Let me remind you, we recently considered the issue of payroll arrears at the Nikolayev Shipyard. I gave an order to repay the debt, first of all to the head of "Ukroboronprom". The deadline is December 25th. Today is the 27th of December. Debt is not repaid. I will sign the presentation and turn to the president ... I advise the head of "Ukroboronprom" to resign. Said - not done? Bye. Look for another job," Groysman said.
He also added that 2017 was the year of "learning", but today it is necessary to make decisions, especially if these decisions are dictated by the Prime Minister's request.
On Monday, August 21, the Nezhinsky Engineering Equipment Repair Plant, part of the state concern "Ukroboronprom," began the process of rehabilitation due to financial problems.
The National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine suspected "Ukroboronprom" of corruption and began to investigate the manipulation of contracts for the supply of spare parts for the An-32 aircraft for the Iraqi Defense Ministry.
