President Petro Poroshenko has appointed Pavlo Bukin as new director-general of the state-owned defence concern Ukroboronprom.

He was the director-general of the state-owned company for export and import of military and special-purpose products and services, Ukrspetseksport.

"We are not only drawing up the results of Ukroboronprom's performance but starting its new type. I thank former head Roman Romanov for his work and wish the concern's new head, Pavlo Bukin, fruitful work," Poroshenko said on Facebook.

Romanov headed the concern from 4 July 2014 to 12 February 2018.
