“Despite the statements of Ukrainian President (Petro Poroshenko) on cancellation of cooperation with Russia in the military sphere and in defense-manufacturing, certain Ukrainian enterprises are set to preserve contract obligations to Russian defense industry,” Sevastyanov said at the Eurosatory 2014 International Land and Air-Land Defense and Security Exhibition.
“But if we face a stand-off, then there will be a problem, a temporary problem, though,” he said. “If (Ukraine) breaks the terms of component parts supplies (helicopter engines), regression claims will follow.”
“We shall meet the demands of our customer (the United States and Afghanistan) but our supplier (Ukraine) will have to shoulder responsibility, too,” he said.
Earlier ITAR-TASS reported quoting the Russian defence industry’s official as saying that this contract was expected to be implemented by November 2014 at the latest.
Overall, forty-eight Mi-17B-5 helicopters have reached Afghanistan via the US ground troops under the previous agreements.
