BEIJING, November 9. /TASS/. Chinese investors in Motor Sich, a Ukrainian aircraft engine manufacturer, accused the Zelensky regime of "plundering China's international assets", a company representative said in a statement on WeChat on Wednesday.
"Since 2020, the Ukrainian government has continuously created issues, accused, suppressed and persecuted Chinese investors, and even imposed special economic sanctions against investors for no reason, with the goal of using illegal means to nationalize Motor Sich PJSC and shamelessly plunder China's international assets," the statement said.
"The legitimate rights and interests of Chinese investors have been significantly infringed, which has resulted in considerable economic losses," the company representative wrote.
In 2016, 56% of the shares of Motor Sich, one of the largest manufacturers of engines for aircraft and industrial gas turbines, were sold to a Chinese investor, but the deal was blocked by the Ukrainian authorities.
Earlier, the National Securities and Stock Market Commission of Ukraine published a resolution on the forced nationalization of shares in Ukrnafta, Ukrtatnafta, Motor Sich, AvtoKrAZ, and Zaporizhtransformator. Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Aleksey Danilov said that strategic Ukrainian enterprises such as Ukrnafta and Motor Sich were transferred to the control of the country's defense ministry.
