"The Yushchenko-Saakashvili arms business goes on,"he said - RIA Novosti.
He noted that modern air-defense systems were being sold "for peanuts" to the Georgian military.
"After the end of the Georgian-South Ossetian conflict in 2008, Ukraine - through the state-controlled company Ukrspetsstroi - continues deliveries of arms and military equipment to Georgia," he added.
According to Konovalyuk, later in October Ukrspetsstroi plans to sell to Georgia 12 modern T-84 Oplot tanks, among other weapons. The coming deliveries also include 10 T-72 tanks, three BTR-80 armored personnel carriers, 20 Igla man-portable antiaircraft missile systems and 40 Strela shoulder-fired surface-to-air missile systems, as well as an assortment of ammunition, shells and rockets.
At the same time, the Ukrainian army is "in a sorry state".
Russia strives for prohibition of arms supplies from Ukraine to Georgia. Kyiv cites to the recent UN report stating that this year only 40 armed vehicles and 1 tank were delivered.
Russia also accuses Kyiv in participation of UNA-UNSO [Ukrainian nationalist organization] in the August war. Ukraine disclaims its participation.
