Counter-intelligence and investigators of the Security Service revealed new facts of the criminal activities of the president of Motor Sich JSC.
On October 23, 2022, employees of the Security Service detained the president of Motor Sich JSC and the head of the Department of Foreign Economic Activities of this company. They were charged with suspicion with two articles:
— Art. 111-1 (collaborative activity);
— Art. 111-2 (assistance to the aggressor state).
The Security Service of Ukraine collected evidence and published audio recordings of the telephone conversations of Motor Sich JSC President Vyacheslav Boguslaev, which confirm cooperation with the enemy.
Now, in the course of investigative actions, it has been established that a high-ranking official was involved in obstructing the legitimate activities of the Defense Forces in favor of the aggressor country.
In particular, according to the investigation, in April of last year the plant received an order from representatives of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications of the Ministry of Internal Affairs regarding the paid transfer of an MI-2 helicopter to the department for combat missions at the front.
However, the head of the industrial giant deliberately blocked the execution of the corresponding state order.
For this, he instructed his subordinates to disassemble the aircraft into parts and hide the operating documentation for it.
Carrying out the order of the high-ranking official, the plant workers removed the blades and disabled the helicopter’s mechanisms, which are responsible for the operation of the main propeller.
Based on this fact, the president of JSC “Motor Sich” was additionally notified of suspicion under Part 3 of Art. 27, Part 2 of Art. 28, Part 1 of Art. 114-1 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (obstructing the lawful activities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and other military formations in a special period, committed by a group of persons in a prior conspiracy).
A pre-trial investigation is underway to establish all the circumstances of the crime and bring the guilty to justice.
Crime detection measures were carried out by employees of the Main Investigation Department and the Counterintelligence Department of the Security Service under the procedural guidance of the Prosecutor General’s Office.
