Petro Andreev: The contract for the supply of armoured personnel carriers BTR-4 in Iraq is not disrupted

16.02.2012 | 13:00
Press Service of the State Financial Inspection of Ukraine
The contract for the supply of Ukrainian armoured personnel carriers BTR-4 in Iraq has not been disrupted was stated by the Chairman of the State Financial Inspection of Ukraine Petro Andreev, commenting on the message of some media about the failure of this contract.

According to Petro Andreev, the contract for the supply of armoured personnel carriersBTR-4 in Iraq was on the verge of collapse due to actions of former leadership of the state-owned company Kharkiv Morozov Machine Building Design Bureau which is part of the Ukroboronprom State Concern.

Breakdown of the contract was possible to avoid in many respects thanks to the timely intervention of management of the Ukroboronprom State Concern and representatives of the State Financial Inspection of Ukraine.

During the audit of last year there was changed management of the state-owned company Kharkiv Morozov Machine Building Design Bureau and already together with a new management of the enterprise and management of the Ukroboronprom State Concern there managed to ensure a further fulfillment of the terms of this contract.

Graham Stack in Berlin for Business New Europe (www.bne.eu)
August 30, 2012

A verdict in a lawsuit in San Antonio, West Texas, has put yet another question mark over a controversial $560m Ukraine-Iraq arms deal, hailed at the time of its signing in 2009 as one that would resurrect Ukraine’s ailing defence industry.

The details are only emerging now, but bne can reveal that a San Antonio jury awarded Texan businessman Howard Lowry in June a whopping $61.75m damages against the Ukraine-US brokers who set up the 2009 deal for cutting him out of it. The court case seems likely to retrigger behind-the-scenes conflicts between Iraqi and Ukraine officials, old and new, over who will earn commissions on the contract.

The San Antonio lawsuit was brought by Howard Lowry, a US businessman who worked in Iraq following the US occupation in 2003 as a middleman for US companies looking to land orders from Iraqi authorities. Lowry sued and won against Oleg Jankovic, owner of Washington DC-based company Jankovic & Associates, an established lobbyist and intermediary for Ukrainian interests in Washington D.C. Jankovic, who is regarded as close to Democrat senator for Virginia Jim Webb, played a key role in facilitating the 2009 deal between Ukrainian defence exporters and Iraqi officials, and received commission payments for doing so.

But according to the lawsuit, it was Baghdad-based Lowry who actually set up the initial meetings between Ukrainian representatives, Jankovic and Iraqi officials. Lowry holds a written contract with Jankovic entitling him to 50% of commissions earned by Jankovic on ensuing contracts. But when the full scale of the pending deal became clear in 2009, Jankovic, with the backing of his Ukrainian client, the state-owned arms export company Progres, cut Lowry out of it.

As a result, the San Antonio court has now made Lowry a breathtaking award of $61.5m damages against Jankovic. The colossal sum is unlikely to be paid in full, as apparently only $112m of the deal’s total price has been transferred by Iraq to date. But Lowry is gunning for as much as he can get in the future “My client has a written contract that entitles him to a share of commissions on payments deriving from the deal, and a clause that stipulates Stockholm as place of international arbitrage,” David Prichard, Lowry’s attorney, tells bne.

With the apparent resumption of payments on the contract in 2012, the scene is now set for protracted court battles.

The whistleblower

When Kyiv and Baghdad announced in October 2009 that Iraq would purchase 420 BTR-4 armoured vehicles and 6 An-32b transport planes from Ukraine, worth a total of $560m, it seemed Ukraine’s defence sector was finally recapturing its Soviet-era glory days. There was even speculation the deal would be only the first in a total potential partnership worth $2.5bn to Ukraine, as Iraq sought to rebuild its defence capacity.

But the deal was not enough to rescue the administration of Viktor Yushchenko from ignominy at the polls in early 2010, with Yushchenko taking a miserly 5% in the presidential elections. As soon as the new administration under President Viktor Yanukovych came to power, there was a wholesale replacing of defence sector management and the Iraq deal hit the rocks. Following initial delivery of 26 vehicles after delays in 2011, Iraq officials refused to accept the second batch of 62 vehicles due to technical defects revealed on reinspection in Ukraine 2011-12, according to media reports. Ukraine officials regularly announced imminent shipping of the armoured vehicles, but it never happened.

According to former defence officials from the previous administration, fighting a rearguard action via media, the real reason for Iraqi officials’ refusal to accept the second batch of armoured vehicles was that Ukraine’s new leadership were refusing to pay out “commissions” to Iraqi officials under a scheme agreed in 2009.

But in June it seemed there had been a breakthrough, with Iraqi officials inspecting and accepting the second batch of 62 BTR-4s in Kharkiv, although bne could not get confirmation from Ukrspetseksport as to whether it had shipped. This indicated some compromise had been reached regarding the commissions between Iraqi officials and the old and new Ukraine officials. Total commissions to both sides are put at around 20%, which is potentially worth around $100m over the course of the entire contract.

But just as the going got smoother, Howard Lowry has now upset the apple cart with his courtroom victory.

Lowry had already made a name for himself as whistleblower in 2011 when he passed to the US media salacious details of notorious US private security contractor Blackwater’s appetite for AK-47s, cocaine, steroids and random violence in Iraq. Now he has turned on Ukraine’s defence sector and lobbyists.

According to Lowry’s successful lawsuit, he personally organised the initial contacts with Iraqi officials in Baghdad for the Ukrainian intermediaries, Jankovic in Washington DC and his colleague, Mykola “Nick” Karanko from Kyiv. Lowry signed an agreement with Jankovic in 2008 assigning him a 50% share in commissions for any help in closing a deal. But after the initial contact to the Iraqis, Jankovic cut him out of the deal entirely, according to the court.

Backhanders on all sides

The details of the court case confirm reports that Iraqi officials had a strong personal interest in the deal going ahead in its original form, as negotiated under the Yushchenko administration. According to court documents seen by bne, Ukrainian arms exporter Progres in 2009 arranged to pay commissions via Mykola Karanko totalling around 8% of the contract sum, to Iraqi citizens Mohammaed Jasem Midnf Al Kaabi, Ahmad Mohammed Al Saady and Haider M. Salih Shnawa Al-Musaied, and to Iraqi companies Al Khairat Al Arabia Co. and Wahi Al Abdaa Co. The payments were for the benefit of members of Iraq’s presidential defence procurement commission, according to the court case. A leaked diplomatic cable from the US embassy in Bagdad expressed “concern about corruption” regarding the Ukraine deal, reminding that nearly 50% of Iraq’s defence expenditure was funded directly by the US.

The US court case, at which Progres’ former deputy head Volodymyr Vladimirov testified, also tellingly revealed that Jankovic and Karanko organised commission payments from Progres in the opposite direction: to Ukrainian “lobbyists”. The court documents record that Progres agreed to pay commissions to Karanko’s Delaware company, Universal Investment Group (UIG). Almost all of the commission payment to UIG made by Progres on the initial down-payment by Iraq was immediately forwarded by UIG to three Ukrainian-owned shell companies, ostensibly for their subcontracted activity as “lobbyists,” under an agreement dated August 20, 2009. The court transcript records Lowry’s attorney Prichard calling the shell companies “fronts for these Ukrainian officials to get bribes.” The defendants obtained a court order preventing disclosure of the identities of the Ukrainian owners of these companies, claiming the information was highly sensitive, according to court records.

A bne source who prefers to remain anonymous, interviewed in Berlin, confirmed the payments to the Ukrainians. According to the source, UIG received a roughly $12m commission payment on the Iraqi down-payment of $112m, and paid just under $10m of this in three roughly equal portions to the Ukraine-owned offshore “lobbyists” – Singapore company UST-Tech Consulting, British Virgin Isles company Hectorian Services and UK company Lanefield Exports. Lanefield Exports at the time was formally owned by Belize companies Milltown Corporate Services and Ireland & Overseas Acquisitions, which media investigations have established are controlled by Latvian money-laundering banks, and are associated with numerous Ukraine corruption cases, including the shipment to South Sudan of armoured vehicles in 2009 on the MS Faina that was hijacked by Somali pirates.

According to bne sources, Karanko, the owner of UIG, is an associate of the former head of arms export company Progres, Taras Shiiko. Karanko, one of Shiiko’s 41 Facebook friends, got his start in business running a translation business in Kyiv, reportedly taking on defence sector orders.

According to bne enquiries, Shiiko himself was seen as a placeman of Serhiy Bondarchuk, head of Progres parent company Ukrspetseksport throughout the presidency of Viktor Yushchenko 2005-10. Yushchenko made Bondarchuk a “Hero of Ukraine”, the highest state decoration, in the dying days of his presidency. Karanko did not respond to email requests to comment on the court verdict. Jankovic & Associates refused to discuss the case with bne over the phone.

Lowry himself says he is now unemployed in San Antonio, suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder after his return from Iraq, and regards his mega-win as fair compensation. “Since becoming involved with the group, I have received more than 30 death threats,” he tells bne.

“My other job involved going into some of the most dangerous areas in Baghdad in order to obtain intelligence that the military could not,” he also writes in his Linkedin profile. “As such, the ‘proving’ initiations were beyond anything I could imagine that one human being would do to another… Unfortunately, as a private civilian, I have been dumped from my health insurance carrier, and can’t find a shrink that has seen nothing greater than a car wreck.”

Who is Mr Salamatin?

Meanwhile back in Ukraine, the derailed arms deal is overshadowing ongoing root-and-branch centralisation of Ukraine’s previously sprawling and shambolic arms export system. But centralisation is unlikely to bring more transparency, argue critics.

Just as Ukraine’s state finances are being centralised round the shadowy figure of 34-year-old national bank head Serhiy Arbuzov – who rose from regional obscurity to the top financial post in a matter of months, and acknowledges a court has exempted him from holding a personal tax ID “on religious grounds” – Ukraine’s defence sector is centralised around the equally shadowy figure of Defence Minister Dmitro Salamatin. Salamatin, whose career started in the mines of Kazakhstan, and who is rumoured to be the son-in-law of 1990s Russian Deputy Prime Minister Oleg Soskovets, only took Ukraine citizenship in 2005, at the age of 40, in order to enter the country’s parliament in 2006. And only in April 2010 did he make headlines in politics – in an offence rather than defence role – leading a charge with chairs and fists that injured opposition MPs during a major parliamentary bust-up.

Days after proving his martial prowess in hands-on fashion, Salamatin was made head of the parent arms export agency Ukrspetseksport. Salamatin immediately moved to centralise the organisation, with Ukrspetseksport assuming direct responsibility for implementing all contracts handled by its subsidiaries such as Progres, including the Iraq contract. Salamatin then successfully lobbied the establishment of a state defence sector holding Ukroboronprom, which now controls all 118 defence production plants as well as all export structures. Salamatin promptly moved to head the new monster holding in 2011, until in February 2012 he was made Ukraine’s defence minister – only seven years after swapping Russian for Ukrainian citizenship.

Critics have accused him of acting in Russian interests in “sabotaging” the Iraq contract, but there is no indication that Russia has swooped to steal the deal. But Salamatin’s strategy for the sector indeed mirrors that launched by Russia’s Vladimir Putin in 2004, in centralising both sales and production structures in holdings directly subordinated to the executive.

In contrast to Russia, however, Ukraine’s defence producers are far more reliant on foreign sales, since cash-strapped Ukraine’s expenditure on arms procurement is close to zero. But that could change: The turmoil breaking out across Ukraine’s key export markets in the Middle East in 2011 and continuing in 2012, along with the threats to the Iraq contract, have undermined hopes for a rapid boost to arms exports. With Salamatin’s move to the defence ministry in February putting him direct charge of procurement, and plans announced that defence production should double through 2017, Ukraine may now be set for a Putin-style hike in defence spending.

A while ago we heard alot about the intention to buy around 400 strikers apc its even mentioned on the Iraqi army section in wiki. But it was forgotten with time. So does any one know what happened to that deal. In my opinion Stryker apc is far more efficient than the btr4 n it would b a great complement to the Iraqi land forces. Could it be the price of the vehicle that canceled every thing n pushed iraq to find an alternative such as the btr4 ? Financially speaking, i think if iraq had the money for 400 strokers I think it's better to use that money to buy more Abrams mbts which is less than one million more than a Stryker price.

THe Malyshev plant in Ukraine is under bankruptcy procedures.

http://gurkhan.blogspot.hu/2012/10/blog-post_31.html

Ukrainian court opened bankruptcy largest manufacturer of tanks

Economic Court of Kharkov region opened bankruptcy proceedings against the state, "the plant. Malyshev" - the largest manufacturer of tanks in Ukraine. Reported in the room (PDF) "Voice of Ukraine" dated 30 October.
It clarifies the "Interfax" , filed for bankruptcy on the basis of the court from the end of December last year, at the suit of the main creditor - state "Lviv armored plant" - the amount of 512.64 million hryvnia (about two billion rubles). Liquidator appointed Oleg Symonenko.
November 6 will be determined by the date of the court hearing, which will decide on the reorganization of the plant, or on the recognition of its bankruptcy and commencement of liquidation or the closure of the insolvency proceedings. The meeting of creditors the company is scheduled for January 19 next year. As of early October, the debt "Plant. Malysheva" was estimated at 578.24 million hryvnia.
Last January, the Ukrainian government moves "Plant them. Malyshev" under control of the State Concern "Ukroboronprom." The company produces tanks "MBT" , "Scimitar", T-64BM "Bulat" and upgraded T-55 and T-72. In addition, the plant produces infantry fighting vehicles, armored personnel carriers and civil products: engines, mining and oil and gas equipment. Lenta.ru report

Gur Khan: Ukrainian-bortsuny pantserbloggery in response to my repeated comments about the very sad situation on a winter vest and tear notch, they say all they have there in Kharkov tiptop. And that's how it got out ... At the same time, also came to light another armored scam (to Russian scammers from MO Ukrainians certainly is). If I am mistaken - correct, but it seems Lviv BTRZ preparing the T-64 to upgrade to Malyshev, sideways or even some part in cooperation on Bulat. Malyshev as "golovnyak" money received, but with the contractor, it seems, does not pay. Apparently the factory management and "Ukroboronproma" in this Scam partners saw the "financial health" and "modernization of the enterprise." We'll see how it will meet its obligations under international contracts. Iraq uzho spits out, followed by Thailand memorable apparently broken off, despite the bravura statements "Ukrspetsexport". In other matters, bankruptcy - it is one of the output options the company out of crisis. Good, if it will really help the plant to get out. But it may be that under this business enterprise simply dies.

not necessarily. The factory may still continue operating whilst bankruptcy procedures are happening, or a bank / lender will take over the management of the factory and continue fulfilling the orders.

A source "Fokus.ua" in the State Concern "Ukroboronprom" Iraq Ukraine fined for failure of delivery of the first batch APCs , which were sent to the Middle Eastern country in late April. Earlier it was reported that the original terms of the contract equipment had to go to Iraq in late 2010. As reported, at the end of 2009, Ukraine and Iraq signed an agreement for the supply of weapons - BTR-4 and AN-32B for a total of 556 , 5 million.
