According to the State Concern, Kharkiv State Aircraft Manufacturing Company was successfully revived and some fixed assets were replaced.

Ukroboronprom states that forging and foundry shops, which have not operated for four years already, were restarted. This allowed the company to start production of spare parts for aircraft. As a result, the plant has been able to provide maintenance of seven Antonov An-72 and An-74 Coaler aircraft for customers in Egypt, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Ukraine.

Reference: Last year, Ukroboronprom State Concern produced and supplied more than 3,500 weapons and military equipment to the armed forces of Ukraine and fulfilled 100 percent of orders received.
