Of 5.37 billion rubles — this is the amount of the claim filed by the defense Ministry to the aviation holding company “Dry”, as it became known from the card file of Affairs of Arbitration court of Moscow.

No details of the claim is not reported, however, according to the court, a statement from the military Department received 29 August. Recall that the company “Sukhoi” on the state order from the Ministry of defence of the Russian Federation creates the fifth-generation fighter, which recently received the name su-57, and produces su-34,su-35 and other aircraft.
Official comments on this issue, “MK” could not be obtained, but one of the leading aviation experts familiar with the issues of DIC, said the following:
If the nature of the claim is not officially reported, it seems that neither one nor the other side would not want to wash dirty linen in public, and so I will try details not to advertise. One can only assume. I can only say the following: sum is pretty decent. Perhaps the requirement of the military to pay for it is a certain formality associated with the breakdown by “Dry” supplies for state defence orders. The military just have to sue the firm failed to perform it within a specified time — this calls for financial discipline. If they do not, the suspect and the customer can be accused of corruption. So now that firms tied to each other in the chain on execution of the state defense order, begin to present to each other claims. We can assume that in this case, the claim of the Ministry of defense related to the delay of order execution on the aircraft of the 5th generation, since the time of its receipt by the VCS was delayed. Although there may have been some other delays in the supply of aircraft. Anyway, at one of the meetings I heard one of the representatives of the defense industry reported that the state order in aviation last year was not fully implemented: not 100%, but only 90.
