Ukrainian Defense Industry “Ukroboronprom”, which counts more than 100 companies, is using its production capacity only for 5-10%. Ukraine could produce 30% of needed arms, as stated Pashynskyi.
He also highlighted that the strategic component of the defense industry is not created, and no serious steps in the modernization of air defense systems. Weapons refit process in Ukraine would last for 3-5 years.
