The representative of the aviation company Antonov Andrey Khaustov, in an interview for a radio station reported that the gap cooperation with Russia means for the company shutting down production this year aviakontserna will not release any aircraft.
Khaustov said that a stock of necessary parts of the Russian production was exhausted in 2015. Then Antonov presented only two aviacar, the An — 148 and An-158. He also gave official confirmation that in 2016, the company will not be able to produce a single aircraft.
Earlier it was reported that the state concern «Ukroboronprom» launched on the basis of «Antonov» aircraft cluster. «Ukrainian aviation company» was to help the country «deeply integrate into the world market,» to develop the aviation industry. In fact, this idea failed miserably.
«Antonov» is a rare company that is able to produce a complete cycle of the aircraft. The company was able to engage in development of new models and after-sales service of aircraft.
In September there is information about the requirements of the government of Ukraine, which is intended to ban the flights of Russian aircraft An-124-100 «Ruslan» outside of Russia, if the Russian Federation refuses service support offered by the Ukrainian side. Experts speak in this debate on the side of Russia, saying that Kiev has no right to insist on the maintenance of Russian aircraft, if Moscow does not intend to renew the contract with the Ukrainian company.
