The collective of the State Enterprise “ASZ No. 2 of JSC“ AK “Bogdan Motors” was outraged to learn about the false and baseless accusations made public during the VAKS court session on October 18, 2019, stated in the press service of the automobile corporation.
"The products of our plant - off-road trucks" Bogdan-63172 "during manufacture and delivery to the Armed Forces of Ukraine had a lower price compared to similar equipment from other suppliers", - said in a message published on the corporate website of the company.
The statement notes that all contracts under the state defense order were and are being fulfilled by our enterprise ahead of schedule, and the cars during operation did not have any comments from the military, and the warranty claims had a minimum quantity, as for such a volume of supplies.
The team argues that the cost of trucks, even hypothetically, could not be overestimated, since it was formed in full accordance with the current legislation and by-laws - with the current version of the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine No. 517 and No. 464, which regulate the entire procedure for setting prices when fulfilling the state defense order ... At the same time, the activities of the enterprise were constantly monitored by the relevant government agencies.
“The events that have been unfolding around our enterprise lately are bringing a lot of nervousness into the mood of employees. Therefore, the result of such a course of events jeopardizes the implementation of the state defense order in the near future, "the corporation warns.
Recall that on October 17 the president of the Bogdan Motors corporation, ex-deputy secretary of the NSDC, Oleg Gladkovsky, was detained by detectives of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU). On October 18, the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office (SAP) reported that Gladkovsky was notified of suspicion of abuse of office and declaring false information.
NABU detectives reported the former official was suspected of committing crimes under Part 2 of Art. 364 and Article 366-1 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. In particular, he is accused of being included in the state defense order and further procurement from the state budget of MAZ 6317 (Bogdan 6317) off-road trucks at inflated prices from the subsidiary Auto Assembly Plant No. 2, which is part of PJSC AK Bogdan Motors ".
