    another plant built during the Soviet era. Show better that Ukraine has built during its independence.

      Maybe I’m wrong, but Ukraine lost too much with its separation from USSR/Russia. I’m also not very sure if Ukrainians really wanted independence.

      Any input from Ukrainians/Russians will be appreciated.

        Not sure about the western Ukrainians, but the Eastern ones certainly don’t show any signs of being particularly happy about being independent. And dont forget the ones living in the Crimea.

      The products lag behind the western performance. The D-18T of Motorsich is actually still a soviet 80s design generating a respectable but nowadays unspectacular 200kN of thrust. If you take the GE90 engine you end up with more than 500kN and the RR Trent900 has some 420kN and all are in the same class. Don´t get me wrong. When the D-18T was launched in the mid-80s it was a top-notch engine, but they are still using the same designs for more than 20 years now. And then is the chaotic plant and the low profitablity of around 150 million USD with more than 20000 people. This could be a good company…

    Kiev is a pleasant and very clean city, nearly totally immigrant scumbag/mob and street crime FREE (unlike other shithole countries of eurotrash like france infested with aggressive individuals of north african origins for example). Restaurants, food, service and supermarkets in Kiev are really good, alcohol and cigarettes are cheap. And i’m not talking about women … They don’t need the new soviet socialist communist union of the eurotrash, me thinks.

    “They don’t need the new soviet socialist communist union of the eurotrash, me thinks.”

    You might be on right track: EU is going down to drain. Fast.

    It seems that EU is repeating same mistakes that bankrupted Soviet Union, only in much faster speed and we have managed to ruin our own economy in just 10 years in order to benefit few ultrarich who even don’t live in EU.

    Totally stupid, but EU Commission is as far from ordinary citizen as Central Commitee was in SU and throughly corrupted: Money buys you a directive in a day. Any directive.

    It’s clear that Commission cares about ordinary tax payers even less than CC ever did in SU. All they care about is personal fortune and power.
