As reported by Censor.NET referring to the SBU press center, the law enforcers established that the Russian secret services elaborated a scheme to supply the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation with military goods produced in Ukraine bypassing sanctions.
"The SBU operatives found that in 2016, the perpetrators planned to deliver sophisticated Ukrainian equipment to Russia using Ukraine-based companies owned by the Russian nationals to bypass existing restrictions.
"The traffickers were going to use resident companies to legally purchase dual-use goods and deliver them to the aggressor state. The relevant experts concluded that the equipment produced by a Zaporizhia-based factory could be used by the defense industry.
"The law enforcers searched premises of the producing company and the persons of interest and seized samples of dual-use equipment to examine it," the report reads.
Earlier, on Nov. 28, the SBU conducted search at Peretvoriuvach Plant PJSC in Zaporizhia over the company's possible cooperation with the Russian defense industry.
