A $450 million order for 13 new Antonov transport airplanes is being prepared, Internal Affairs Minister Minister Arsen Avakov writes on Facebook. The order would restart production of three models. This year, the Ministry wants to receive from Antonov one An-32b turboprop cargo, a plane that stopped production in 2012. Also from Antonov, the government wants 10 An-178 aircraft. Only one An-178 was made, in 2015, largely for promotional purposes.
