The leader of the Ukrainian Radical party, Oleg Lyashko commented on the American media that the domestic company “Motor Sich” contrary to the interests of the United States supplied China engines for combat aircraft. About this he wrote in his Facebook.
“If the Americans don’t want we sold to the Chinese, let them buy our aircraft engines. And we allowed the Chinese to sell and do not buy, and in the end the alternative for the “Motor Sich” — one is the bankruptcy of businesses and thousands of new highly skilled, but unemployed Ukrainians”, — said the politician.
According to him, Ukraine is one of five countries in the world that produce modern aircraft engines, so the plants must work at full capacity.
Earlier in August, the Washington Times reported that the company “Motor Sich” signed a contract, involving the delivery to China of 250 engines at $ 380 million, in 2016. Then, there were 20 engines for combat training aircraft JL-10. Former Advisor to the U.S. Senate Committee on foreign relations William Triplett said that Ukraine uses the money of American taxpayers and a blow to the Navy of the United States. Expert international Strategy and Assessment Center Rick Fisher believes that Washington should exert pressure on Kiev to block the supply of engines.
