A Donbassaero Airbus A320-200, registration UR-DAC performing flight 7D-7760 from Hurghada (Egypt) to Kiev (Ukraine), was enroute at FL360 over the Mediterranean Sea when the crew reported the failure of the green hydraulic system as result of a low hydraulic fluid quantity. After working the relevant checklists the crew elected to continue to Kiev, where the aircraft landed safely.
Ukraine's Ministry of Transport reported maintenance found the cause of the hydraulic leak was the fracture of low pressure drain line as result of wear in vibrations. The wear was the result of improper installation of a mounting collar in Liberia. The Ukraine have listed the Liberian maintenance facility as low quality facility, all Ukrainian operators have been informed.
