Oleksandr Turchynov on the Rybalsky Factory case: this is a smear of a combat general and an enterprise capable of producing warships

In Ukraine, the Yanukovych regime is being reincarnated with its main features – legal nihilism, law enforcement arbitrariness, commissioned cases and unjust decisions. This was stated by the Secretary of the National Security and Defencee Council from 2014-2019 and Head of the Central Staff of European Solidarity, Alexander Turchynov. He stressed that the persecution of Combat General Pavlovsky and the head of Private Joint Stock Company “Kuznya na Rybalskomu” undermines the state’s defence capabilities.

“At this time, this smear of combat general Igor Pavlovsky and the head of the defence-industrial enterprise Valery Shandra, ordered by the authorities, the current Ze-team and the president, is taking place in the Pechersk court,” Turchynov said.

He stressed that General Pavlovsky headed the defence of Mariupol in 2014 and did everything to protect the strategic city for Ukraine.

“As Deputy Defence Minister, he worked to ensure that our army, our Armed Forces, received new military equipment, new weapons. He did it honestly and professionally, “Turchynov said.

“Speaking of the Kuznya na Rybalskomu defence enterprise, it is probably one of the last enterprises that is still capable of producing for our country’s Navy in Ukraine. In 2014-2015, all deliveries of any military armaments, military equipment, and weapons to our country were blocked. And we had to rely solely on our own strength. It was then that “Kuznya na Rybalskomu” was able to organize the production of armoured artillery boats, which became known throughout the world, breaking through the Kerch Strait under Russian fire. Now the enterprises and military try to accuse them that they organized the release of these landing boats», – Alexander Turchinov stated.

He noted that these boats are currently being tested at the Ministry of Defence.

“And when President Zelensky spoke in Odessa, he was photographed against the background of this military equipment. Unfortunately, instead of speeding up their trials to adopt them, an artificial affair is being created, and as a result we are witnessing Zelensky’s dirty PR tricks again. We are witnessing an all-too-common disruption of the State Defence Order, when six months have passed and contracts for the production of weapons and military equipment have not been signed and paid for again, and this event takes place against this background where people are accused of trying to strengthen our defence. ” – stated Alexander Turchinov.

“I am not surprised that defence orders are being disrupted. Because when such absurd cases are opened against those performing their duties – such as high-ranking officials, these same generals are simply too afraid to sign agreements, realizing that they can be thrown behind bars at any time, ” Turchynov said.

“The absurdity of this case is confirmed by the bail that was set. 440 million hryvnias for each defendant. Such bail was set for General Pavlovsky, who lives in a rented apartment in Kyiv. Not at the state dacha, like the current state leaders, but in a rented apartment, and he is given a bail of 440 million, which falls into the top 10 biggest bails ever. “Turchynov said.

“Conspiracy is when someone betrays their country, when they expose a special operation and in fact give militants the opportunity to remain at large, namely the Wagner Group members who killed Ukrainians. Conspiracy is when our military are forbidden from defending their country and responding to military provocations by Russian mercenaries. Conspiracy is when our country is being disarmed by them. And what Pavlovsky and Shandra are accused of is not a conspiracy, it is proper performance of official duties,” Oleksandr Turchynov summed up.
