Adopting the bill on Ukroboronprom reform will help reduce corruption risks in defense industry, Kryvonos believes. According to him, the new body will take under control the companies that are now part of the defense giant and eliminate a "very large number of existing &#39;mediating&#39; firms," while raising the level of transparency in defense procurement.
