"Лыбидь" will not fly up. Officials of Ukrkosmos stole the money allocated for creation of the first Ukrainian satellite


According to media, more than 8 million dollars were taken out abroad, and charges are already brought to suspects. Start of the satellite was planned initially in 2012, but all the time was transferred. Whether Ukraine will restore the space program? One of spacecrafts of the Ukrainian production. Archive. Photo: The marine of Lystsev/TASS of "Lybid" will not fly up again — more than 8 million dollars allocated for construction of the first Ukrainian space satellite were stolen. Suspects — the highest ranks of Ukrkosmos. Money is taken already out abroad, specifies UNIAN news agency. "Лыбидь" — the Ukrainian development which had to become "first signs" of the National satellite communication system of Ukraine. The contract for its creation was signed between Ukrkosmos and the Canadian firm MDA in 2009. Canada acted as the main contractor and the developer of payload. It allocated 254 million dollars for the project. The Lybid system was planned to start in 2012, however date was postponed six times, and the satellite is still not launched. Last time the head of the State Space Agency of Ukraine Pavel Degtyarenko said that the satellite presumably will be launched in the second half of 2018. Law enforcement authorities of Ukraine established two suspects of plunder. One of them — the non-staff adviser to the CEO of Ukrkosmos. Charge of assignment, waste of state property and money laundering is brought to him. The second suspect, the authorized representative, is accused of legalization of the money acquired in the criminal way. In six years they managed to appropriate more than 8 million dollars — extensive damage of Ukrkosmosu was caused to these. Criminals organized the scheme according to which they removed abroad and legalized money of the Export agency of Canada. Plunders in Ukrkosmosa — a consequence of personnel policy of Petro Poroshenko, the Ukrainian political scientist, the director of "Institute of global strategy" Vadim Karasyov is sure: Vadim Karasyov is the Ukrainian political scientist, the director of "Institute of global strategy" "Since Yanukovych's arrival when the authoritative developer and the rocketeer Yury Alekseev was detached, then this reshuffling and nonprofessionalism only amplified with arrival in 2014 of the new power which put on the defense enterprises of loyal representatives, but not professionals. Therefore I am not surprised here. It is not really surprised also with possible plunders as often there were engaged in banal earning money at the expense of budgetary funds. Well, clear, before elections nothing will change here, but if there is a new president, the new structure of the power will be, I think that the first, than the new power, it, of course, revival of Ukrkosmos, the Ukrainian space program will be engaged". In the nearest future the court will choose a measure of restraint for suspects. To add BFM.ru to your sources of news?
