The adoption of the draft law on reforming "Ukroboronprom" will contribute to the reduction of corruption risks in the defense-industrial complex. This was stated by Deputy Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Serhiy Kryvonos in the "Rendezvous" program on Channel 5.
According to him, recently a round table meeting was held under the chairmanship of Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov with the participation of people's deputies and defense sector specialists, during which a draft law envisaging the removal of non-governmental functions from "Ukroboronprom" was discussed.
Mr. Kryvonos reminded that "Ukroboronprom" was created on Yanukovych's initiative "for simpler control over all financial flows that went through defense enterprises". Therefore, according to the Deputy Secretary of the NSDC of Ukraine, the purpose of the draft law submitted to the parliament is "to destroy the old management system at "Ukroboronprom", while the enterprises that can operate efficiently and transparently will remain.
