Former Motor Sich president blocks delivery of military intelligence helicopter
Boguslayev deliberately dismantled the helicopter that the RMG had asked for.
This was reported by the Ukrainian Security Service's press centre.
In April last year, when Russia's full-scale war against Ukraine was already going on for two months, the then acting president of Motor Sich, Vyacheslav Boguslayev, blocked the supply of a helicopter for military intelligence.
Last year, the Defence Ministry's Main Intelligence Directorate submitted a request to Motor Sich to supply a MI-2 type helicopter for combat missions on the frontline.
In turn, Boguslayev ordered the helicopter to be disassembled and operational documentation concealed. Employees of Motor Sichy removed the blades and disabled the mechanisms of the helicopter responsible for the operation of the main rotor.
Now Boguslayev has been recalled on suspicion under Part 3 Article 27, Part 2 Article 28 and Part 1 Article 114-1 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. A pre-trial investigation continues.
It should be recalled that the SBU detained him back in October last year.
