On December 21, Husiev signed an order to begin the corporatization of Ukroboronprom. The reform envisages that the 65 most promising enterprises of the conglomerate will be merged into a new state defense holding. Sectoral business units will be established in the form of joint-stock companies that will be united in the following areas: aircraft repair, armored vehicles, radar systems, marine systems, high-precision weapons, ammunition and special-purpose chemicals.
The creation of the holding company and sectoral business units should be completed in 2021. A new model of corporate governance will be introduced in accordance with the principles and recommendations of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (transparency, accountability, independent governance, control). The activities of the management holding and sectoral business units will be controlled by supervisory boards.
