Ukrainian-Iraqi agreement for the supply of BTR-4, (made at the Kharkiv Malyshev Plant), performed in the normal mode. Ukrinform Deputy Head of Kharkiv Regional State Administration Andriy Mochenkov said. “We have enough optimism. Iraq has agreed to take another batch of BTR-4 “, – he said.
Recall that in early August, Ukrainian media reported the alleged refusal of the Iraqi side to take another batch of BTR-4. Journalists with reference to the representative of the Odessa Varamar, which was transporting armored vehicles, reported that the Iraqis refused to unload the armored personnel carriers to the bank because of alleged cracks in buildings. Since April, the ship was in international waters near Iraq.
The contract between Ukraine and Iraq includs the supply of 450 units of BTR-4, which produces the Kharkiv Malyshev Plant. Since 2010, Iraq has delivered nearly 100 pieces of the machine.
