The State Concern "Ukroboronprom" enterprises handed over more than 4,900 units of weapons and military equipment to the Armed Forces, the National Guard and other power structures of Ukraine.
"The war has convincingly shown that victory can only be won by relying on high morale of the troops, general public support and modern weapons. More than 4,900 units of new, modernized and repaired weapons and military equipment were received by the Ukrainian Army from the State Concern "Ukroboronprom" in 2018″, said the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko.
Among these are 2,500 units of state-of-the-art high-precision missile weapons such as PTRK "Stuhna-P", "Barier" and LPRK "Corsar", which are capable of destroying the enemy with one shot.
At the same time, in 2018 the State Concern enterprises transferred to the Ukrainian army modern armored vehicles BTR-3 and BTR-4, 79К6 "Pelican" radar stations, С-300 anti-aircraft missile systems, modernized fighters MiG-29 and Su-27, "Hvozdyka" artillery systems, "Urahan" multiple rocket launcher systems and dozens of other types of equipment and weapons ranging from individual navigation systems to military transport aircraft. This work, which was carried out by "Ukroboronprom" enterprises considerably strengthened the defensive ability of Ukrainian fighters.
In 2018, the final stages of the development of state-of-the-art weaponry which should strengthen the Ukrainian army in the near future were completed. In particular, this involves the "Vilkha" and "Neptun" projects which brought together dozens of the State Concern "Ukroboronprom" enterprises and a number of other manufacturers of defense industry products. These high-precision weapons can dramatically increase the combat capabilities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and ensure the destruction of enemy targets at a large distance.
In 2019, "Ukroboronprom" enterprises will continue to re-equip Ukrainian troops with new and upgraded weapons and military equipment, to expand production facilities, to master new technologies and to develop new promising weapons.
