State Concern "Ukroboronprom" is ready to begin construction of a ammunition manufacturing plant and is waiting for the allocation of funds from the state budget. This was stated by Director General of the State Concern Roman Romanov on the air of "Channel 5".
Romanov said that the project documentation and cost estimates for the construction of the plant have long been prepared and submitted to the Cabinet. The government has proposed more than 10 variants of plant construction and as soon as the Cabinet decides, "Ukroboronprom" will get started.
He stressed that Ukraine needs its own ammunition production, because only domestic ammunition plant is located in Lugansk, in the temporarily occupied territory, and the technological capabilities of the captured enterprise are outdated and do not meet the requirements of time.
