President Petro Poroshenko states that Ukraine managed to arrange production of ammunition, and now the enterprises of “Ukroboronprom” are ready for mass production of those types that were scarce until recently.

“I congratulate you on the fact that we have not just held trials that have shown the high quality of the work of these teams that are taking part today in our holiday. We are ready to organize mass production of the most scarce ammunition in the near future,” the Head of State said at the opening of the production line for the manufacturing of large caliber artillery shells at “Artem” JSC.

Petro Poroshenko also noted that the first tests were conducted only in the first quarter of this year and now it is an issue of mass production. “I want to congratulate the Ukrainian people — the trials were successful,” he said.

The President also reminded that the issue of restoration and adjustment of production of such ammunition arose after Russia’s aggression against Ukraine and seizure of the factory in Luhansk by the invaders.

“Someone wanted to put Ukraine on its knees, because nobody sold us ammunition from abroad and the Luhansk plant was seized, equipment was taken to the Russian Federation or stolen. This is the attitude of the invaders,” the Head of State said.

“Ukraine, President, Government, Ministry of Defense, Ministry of Economy, National Security and Defense Council faced the task of restoring the production of ammunition. And not only to restore, but also to make it more advanced, more precise, more effective, to increase the military capabilities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine,” he stressed.

Petro Poroshenko congratulated everyone on the successful completion of this task. “I want to congratulate our workers in the defense industry, congratulate the army. When forming the military budget we included the necessary funds to secure the procurement and timely financing of the defense industry, which has never happened before,” the President underlined.

President Petro Poroshenko took part in the opening of the exhibition of modern armament and military equipment of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and other military formations “The Power of the New Army”.

The Head of State handed certificates for weapons and equipment to the military. In particular, the military received new portable anti-tank missile complexes “Stugna-P” and light portable missile complexes “Corsar”.

“Friends, we really lacked them on the frontline in 2014. What a high price was paid by Ukraine in 2014-2015 because of their absence,” the Head of State said during the ceremony of delivery of arms.

According to the President, the new weaponry will be handed over to representatives of the Land Forces, Navy, Airborne Assault Forces and Special Operations Forces. In the near future, they will receive 75 complexes, he added.

“These Ukrainian anti-tank complexes have already proven themselves in battles. They reduce the risk of enemy damage to the operator — due to the possibility of placing the launcher at a very safe distance from the operator. Due to the possibility of acquiring the target from the closed positions and shelters. An important advantage is the cost of domestic anti-tank complexes, which is several times cheaper than that of foreign samples. For the same money of Ukrainian taxpayers, we are now buying 5-6 times more weapons from the Ukrainian defense industry,” Petro Poroshenko said.

President Petro Poroshenko said on the eve of the 27th anniversary of Independence of Ukraine that Ukrainian soldiers defend the territorial integrity and independence of our state. “It is very important that the values they protect are European values. The values of freedom for the country and all Ukrainians. They guard not only national, but also regional, continental, European security,” Petro Poroshenko said at the opening of the exhibition of modern armament and military equipment of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and other military formations “The Power of the New Army”.

The Head of State stressed: “High patriotic spirit, honor and dignity, professionalism, courage and willingness to sacrifice — these are the main features of the modern generation of Ukrainian warriors”.

According to Petro Poroshenko, the aggressor was well and purposefully prepared for the aggressive actions: “It strengthened its army, and destroyed ours with their agents in the Ukrainian authorities”.

“Nevertheless, having concentrated all resources available at the time, thanks to the courage of the soldiers and a powerful volunteer movement, we stopped the aggressor. In the future, the army has resumed combat capability, acquired a unique combat experience, increased operational capabilities, improved the level of technical equipment,” the President also noted.

President Petro Poroshenko emphasizes that a profound change in the system of training and logistical support of the personnel of our army and our Armed Forces has taken place in a short time. “In the summer of 2014, a lot of time had to be spent on clothing issues. Because there was no uniform in the warehouses, the warriors were undressed. There was no medical support, material support, food supplies. Everything laid on the shoulders of the volunteer movement at that time. There was no fuel, there were no first aid kits,” he also reminded.

“And today the tasks are completely different. These are the tasks I set to the Armed Forces and defense and security sector — transition to NATO standards, reforms, modernization, rearmament,” Petro Poroshenko said.

According to him, six waves of mobilization, voluntary movement, contract service and a powerful mobilization reserve turned the Ukrainian Armed Forces into a true people’s army. “Today, due to the joint efforts of the state, military, society we have an entirely different army and an entirely different warrior. It is a trained, equipped warrior with a firm belief in victory and a strong love for the Homeland,” the President stressed.

At the same time, not only human will, but also modern military equipment multiplied by the highly professional knowledge of personnel wins the war, as stated by the President. “The scheduled provision of new upgraded weapons and new military equipment has considerably expanded the combat capabilities of the Armed Forces,” the President said.

New Ukrainian UAVs, helicopters, missiles, modernized air defense systems show their high efficiency
https://en.interfax.com.ua/news/general/532966.html

During the tests of new Ukrainian weapons and military equipment held at a military range of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, all the models have shown their high efficiency and will significantly strengthen Ukraine's military potential after they are taken into service, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine (NSDC) Oleksandr Turchynov has said.

"All the new developments of the Ukrainian defense industry that have been tested have demonstrated their high efficiency, and after they are taken into service, they will greatly strengthen our military potential," the NSDC's press service quoted Turchynov as saying on Friday after the tests.

According to him, aviation tests were carried out on a new operational and tactical unmanned vehicle, "which is capable of carrying out reconnaissance, coordinating fire, ensuring communication at operative depths of up to 200 km, which is stable from the impact of electronic warfare and can stay in the air for up to 24 hours," and also a military unmanned system, which can carry a powerful explosive or thermobaric combat charge and accurately hit targets in the deep rear of the enemy.

"These unmanned complexes were created by Ukrainian arms enterprises in cooperation with our foreign partners," Turchynov said.

In addition, flight performance of Ukrainian light multi-purpose helicopters Scout and AK1-3 was demonstrated.

According to Turchynov, these helicopters are capable of conducting reconnaissance and ensuring rapid communication in the troops, as well as carrying out border protection tasks.

The modernized ZU-23-2 air defense system was also tested.

"The combination of this reliable air defense system with an electronic system of automatic target location and fire management will reliably destroy air and ground targets, in particular, UAVs in service with the Russian Federation," he said.

New Ukrainian-made ammunition was demonstrated and tested at the firing ground, in particular, RS-80 missiles suitable for use in various applications.

China turns to the Ukraine to upgrade its military, the Washington Post reports. Chinese investors are reportedly asking staff at a Ukrainian aircraft engine factory about record-keeping and planning, the setup of production lines and the interplay between workshops. China is looking to upgrade its military and has found a willing partner in Motor Sich, because it can supply warplane engines as well as the know-how to possibly make a Chinese-built version in the future. Motor Sich has lost its biggest market, specifically supplying engines for military helicopters and other aircraft, after the Eastern Ukrainian War broke out in 2014.
