In relation to the dissemination of incorrect information in media regarding activities of the Company of TECHIMPEX in the last few days we consider it necessary to provide official information on media reports.
TECHIMPEX carries out its business in strict compliance with national and international laws that set out rules and regulations of military goods transfers. TECHIMPEX is not an authorized company therefore it does not export military goods and services. Exports of military goods and services are performed only through state-owned companies designated by the government of Ukraine.
All export contracts involving military goods pass expertise of authorized state agencies and are executed after the State service of export control of Ukraine issues required permits and licenses.
“Since our activities are not directly relating to military goods export we are not aware of any supplies to countries of Africa, the Middle East and Asia. It is worthpointing out that this kind of media reports discredit the whole defense sector of Ukraine rather than our Company only in the eyes of Ukraine and the world community,” Mr.Volodymyr KALYNA, TECHIMPEX Director General said.
