Indonesia orders Ukrainian armored personnel carriers [excerpt]

Jane's Defense Daily - March 19, 1997

Indonesia has ordered an unspecified number of armored personnel carriers from Ukraine's UKRSPETSE, the country's state-owned arms corporation, according to a top company official.

Andrei Koukin, UKRSPETSE's director general, disclosed the deal yesterday during a press conference at the IDEX '97 defense exhibition in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

Koukin would not disclose the value of the deal. But he did say that although the deal would not yield the company significant financial results, it would bolster Ukrainian market presence in the Asia-Pacific region.
