Soviet and Russian military technology come to China “on the cheap” because of the policies of the Kiev authorities seeking for instant profits
Ukraine regularly sells to China complete sets of technical documentation and sends the samples of products, intellectual property rights of which are owned by Russian companies. Chinese costs are many times smaller than would be in the case of the acquisition of similar products in the Russian Federation. During the negotiations of 2005-2007 for the supply of small landing hovercraft party of project 12322 “Bison” the Russian side insisted on the acquisition by Beijing of 10-15 units as a condition for the transfer of technical documentation. Instead, in 2008, China has signed with GC “Ukrspecexport” contract to purchase four “Bison.” Two of the ships were to be built at the shipyard “More” (Theodosius), two more – assembled in China, with transferring of the complete set of design documentation to customer. Since the construction of ships is the intellectual property of Russian Design Bureau “Almaz”, the Ukrainian side were made minimal changes, resulting in supposedly appeared “Ukrainian” project 958 “Bison”.
