MOSCOW, March 12. /ITAR-TASS/. The events in Ukraine do not affect cooperation with Russia in aircraft engine building and the fulfilment of the existing obligations, president of the Zaporozhye engine-building plant “Motor Sich” Vyacheslav Boguslayev said on Wednesday.
At present, about 40% of product accounts for orders from Russia, the official said.
He refused to specify the exact number of engines, which had been produced in Zaporozhye within a year.
At the same time, Boguslayev said the annual output of helicopter engines would reach 1,000 pieces.
In his words, the customs service does not face any problems. “From October to January, the Ukrainian Ministry of Industrial Policy and the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade are coordinating export lists. They ease customs procedures on the border,” Boguslayev said, adding that “it will take at least three hours to make cargoes to cross the border."
