According to a draft resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers posted on
the ministry’s Web site on Wednesday, the list includes Antonov State
Enterprise, Malyshev Plant, Zaporizhia-based Ivchenko-Progress
Machine-Building Design Bureau, Kharkiv-based FED Machine-Building
Plant, Kherson-based Pallada State Plant, Feodosia-based Morye
Shipbuilding Company, Pivdenne Design Bureau and Pivdenmash.

The list prepared by the Economic Development and Trade Ministry also
includes Sevastopol Aircraft Plant, Lviv Armored Tank Repair Plant,
Zaporizhia Automobile Repair Plant, Lutsk Motor Repair Plant, Feodosia
Ship and Mechanical Plant, Kommunar Association, Kyiv Petrovsky
Automatics Plant and Pavlohrad Chemical Plant.

As reported, the application of the law on public procurement to
defense companies has been criticized in the defense sector since it
came into force in 2010. The execution of the law was accompanied by
numerous collective and personal appeals from the directorate of the
defense industry to legislative and executive government agencies with
requests and demands on the introduction of amendments to the law.
