(Credt: Yuzhnoye)
The first stage of Orbital Sciences Corporation’s Antares rocket
is shipped out from Yuzhnoye design bureau in Ukraine.

Interfax-Ukraine reports that workers at the A.M. Makarov Southern Machine-Building Plant (PA Yuzhmash) in Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine held a rally to protest the lack of pay and work.

The workers build Zenit and Cyclone-4 boosters as well as the first stage of Orbital Sciences Corporation’s Antares launch vehicle and the fourth stage for Europe’s Vega rocket. They are also involved in Dnepr, a decommissioned ballistic missile that has been converted into a satellite launcher.

The report indicates that since last July, employees have been working only three days per week and are pay $200 to $300 only once or twice per month. There’s also been a lack of new orders for their products.

The company owes about $150 million in back salaries and other payments, according to the story.

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, whose country is responsible for much of Ukraine’s misery, Tweeted the following:

Comentário: Olha leitor, não tenho nada contra os trabalhadores ucranianos que estão na luta diária pela sobrevivência, muito justo, mas no que diz respeito ao Cyclone-4 esta é uma grande notícia para o PEB e para o Brasil. Este acordo com a Ucrânia jamais deveria ter sido assinado e felizmente parece caminhar para um fim melancólico, mas extremamente custoso (financeiramente e tecnologicamente) e decepcionante para o nosso país (antes tarde do que nunca). Tomara mesmo leitor que essa aventura política petista irresponsável e desastrosa jamais venha resultar em lançamentos deste trambolho tóxico ucraniano do território brasileiro.
