In Kyiv at the plant "Lenin's Kusnitsa" took place a solemn launching of the armored artillery boat Gurza-M.  The ceremony was attended by the Secretary of National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine (NSDC) Oleksandr Turchynov.

"This boat will be able to reliably protect the border and detect dangerous targets, landing and surface targets. Within a 30 km distance it gives the coordinates of a dangerous target, which threatens our coastal security. It has underwater radars that can find for 1 kilometer a combat swimmer-diver. I'm sure that it is actually the first but very important step that will restore the capacity of the Navy, " Turchynov said.
