You're reading: Ukraine’s arms concern needs to be free from corruption, rebuilt from scratch

 The main task of Ukroboronprom is to meet the needs of the Ukrainian army and the National Guard, as well as other military units, for modern equipment, upgrades, repairs and recycling. As a new head of Ukronoronprom, appointed by presidential decree on March 21, I will make it top priority of my activity.
Currently, we’re getting ready to supply 100 armored personnel carriers for the National Guard to reinforce their fighting capabilities.

But I am happy to say that we are able to produce a lot more, and meet the army’s demand for arms and equipment to fight a defensive war. We’re able to produce many components for aircraft and a lot of military equipment, but what we cannot produce, we need to be able to quickly buy from abroad, including from NATO facilities.

We’re waiting for the political leadership of the country to produce the National Security and Military Doctrine, which will lay out Ukraine’s needs for enhancing military effectiveness. The next step will be to develop a new Concept of Army Development, which breaks the doctrine down to individual tasks.
Ukroboronprom will then be able to implement these tasks in cooperation with the Defense Ministry of Ukraine, though the domestic potential of its arms industry and through military and technical cooperation with others.
