Ukraine blocks Chinese takeover of jet engine maker on US urging

Motor Sich holds key military technology for Beijing, now Kyiv's top trade partner

MOSCOW -- Ukraine will halt the takeover of an aircraft engine maker by a Chinese company, responding to U.S. objections over the prospect of important military technology falling into Beijing's hands.

Kyiv plans to return Motor Sich to Ukrainian control, ending efforts by Beijing Skyrizon Aviation to take management of the company, following a yearslong battle over the manufacturer's fate.
