Ukraine is planning to revive Ukrainian Marine Forces by 2020, informed Marine Forces Commandant Sergiy Haiduk in an interview to Defense Express.

“We plan to provide Ukrainian Marine Forces with 2-4 submarines by 2020. Marine Forces must become elite of the fleet and an important military, moral-psychological and deterrent factor in the region”, - he said.

According to Haiduk, currently various options of equipping Ukrainian Marine Forces are considered, depending on a possible area of operation.

He added, taking into account peculiarities of hydrology and depth of the Black Sea, these can be ultra-small, small or even medium-sized submarines, with a possibility of lease.

Earlier Haiduk stated that if Ukraine doesn’t start building new ships, it may lose the status of a navy country.
