January 29 - Antonov has denied reports in the international media suggesting that Antonov State Company has gone into liquidation.

Antonov said that the Ukrainian government has taken the decision to liquidate Antonov State Concern, which comprises Antonov State Company, Kharkiv State Aircraft Manufacturing Company (KSAMC) and State Enterprise Plant 410 of Civil Aviation.

However, Antonov claims that the government has placed the three companies of Antonov State Concern (mentioned above) under management of Ukroboronprom State Concern in an attempt to increase the efficiency of the aircraft industry.

Accordingly, says the aircraft manufacturer, Antonov State Company continues to work, performing the full cycle of aircraft production from research to construction, tests, certification, serial production and maintenance.
