Does the company publish a statement of values or principles representing high standards of business conduct, including honesty, trust, transparency, openness, integrity and accountability?

Based on public information, there is evidence that the company has published a Code of Ethics, which identifies a number of values, ethical principles, and standards of behavior for employees. However, this document does not refer to honesty, trust, transparency, openness, integrity, or accountability. Evidence suggests that the company is a fully owned subsidiary of Oboronprom, which is part of Rostec Corporation (Russian Technologies). However, there is no readily available evidence to confirm that the company publicly subscribes to the policies of Oboronprom and Rostec, and these companies do not seem to publish a statement of values representing the above-mentioned standards.

Does the company have an anti-corruption policy that prohibits corruption in its various forms?

Based on public information, there is no readily available evidence of an anti-corruption policy that prohibits corruption in its various forms. TI notes that there is evidence that the company states a commitment to ‘high legal, business and ethical standards’ and developing a culture of combatting the abuse of office. There is also a clear link to the policies of Oboronprom and Rostec, although they are not publicly endorsed by the company. The Rostec anti-corruption statement, however, remains legalistic and refers to the national legal framework of the Russian Federation, without developing the company’s own anti-corruption policies and procedures.
