Ukraine’s Economic Security Bureau reported on Jan. 2 that it had charged six executives of Ukroboronprom, the country’s main defense company, with embezzlement and abuse of power.

According to the investigation, they concluded contracts to purchase low-quality equipment worth Hr 5.4 million (about $146,000) for the military in March 2022.

The equipment didn’t meet the quality standards but was still handed over to the military to perform combat missions, the bureau said, adding that a set of forensic examinations and other evidence confirmed the poor quality of the goods.

The president described the delivery of aid, particularly badly needed air defense, as "one big step forward, but before that, two steps back."
