‘Implementation of our missile program is the way to provide solid protection for our state. Currently, we work on very promising initiatives that are meant to return Ukraine its lost leadership at the missile armament market. That’s the task of the domestic defense industry; the new Ukrainian weaponry must not only match that of Russian - in terms of combat effectiveness – but also to exceed it’, Olexandr Turchynov, Secretary of Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council, said in an interview with UNIAN news agency.
He added that lately, the demand for Ukrainian weapons has grown across the world market. ‘We currently restore our presence at the weapons market. I guess Ukraine’s defense industry will be capable of providing serious cash inflow into our budget’, Turchynov said.
Previously, 112 International reported that the Armed Forces successfully tested the new missile.
