Vyacheslav Boguslaev tried to “secure” illegal trade by a Belarusian intermediary
The Ukrainian strategic enterprise has been selling engines and other parts to sanctioned Iranian companies for years.
The Ukrainian strategic enterprise Motor Sich has been trading with sub-sanctioned Iranian companies from the military industry for years. In particular, we are talking about the developers of Shahed-type kamikaze drones. This is stated in the investigation of the journalistic project of the Scheme, which refers to the relevant documents.
The report says that Motor Sich supplied the AI-9 and TV3-117 engines – such models are installed both on small transport aircraft and on military helicopters, in particular the Ka-52 type, which Russia uses in the war against Ukraine.
Among these companies are enterprises associated with the state military industry of Iran and involved in the development of Shahed-171 and Shahed-136.
Documentary evidence of such cooperation was found by law enforcement officers in the office of Vyacheslav Boguslayev, long-term president of Motor Sich.
Journalists analyzed copies of these documents and identified three Iranian firms with which the Ukrainian corporation Motor Sich cooperated:
- Design and Manufacturing of Aeroengines (abbreviated: DAMA), another name – Turbine Engine Manufacturing Industries (TEM) – the developer and manufacturer of Shahed-171;
Iran Aircraft Industries (IACI);
Iran Aircraft Manufacturing Industrial Company (HESA).
The management of Motor Sich understood that direct trade with Iran was dangerous for business. In this regard, Boguslaev proposed to involve a Belarusian intermediary.
It should be noted that on October 22 last year, the SBU detained Boguslayev on suspicion of high treason.
Later, the intelligence service published evidence of Boguslayev’s cooperation with Russia. Currently, the ex-head of Motor Sich is in custody.
