On March 22, 2012 (it was Thursday) Victor Yanukovich, President of Ukraine, visited our city Zaporozhye. According to program of his visit the Head of government has visited district health centre for children and also “ZAZ JSC” – automobile company. However, right off the landing at the airport in Zaporozhye a presentation of our five helicopters was arranged for Mr. V. Yanukovich, i.e. Mi-8 MSB – passenger and cargo aircraft and also MSB -2 - passenger, ambulance, search and rescue aircraft.
All the world knows that this is the product of MOTOR SICH JSC, the only one company in Ukraine which is involved in helicopter industry. The President of Ukraine inspected aircraft models manufactured by MOTOR SICH JSC while Mr. V. Boguslaev, Chairman of board of directors, informed him about the achieved success in development and upgrading of new current-technology helicopters.
We hope that the dialogue between Mr. V. Boguslaev, Member of Ukrainian parliament and the Hero of Ukraine, and Mr. V. Yanukovich, President of Ukraine, which took place here in Zaporozhye will initiate the adoption of government program for Ukrainian helicopter industry. Such program will speed up considerably the production of new Ukrainian helicopters. Later, at the meeting of Regional Administration, Mr.V. Yanukovich noticed that:
- We’ll be involved in helicopter industry. The creation of such business line is on the list of top targets of our government!
