"Our priority is to make sure that soldiers get fully equipped to appear on a battlefield. We send innovative Ukrainian-made models to the frontline and focus on producing a new, state-of-the-art equipment instead of upgrading the existing one," said General Director of Ukroboronprom Roman Romanov

Kyiv Armored Plant regularly provides high-quality and modern equipment to Ukraine's Armed Forces, thus enhancing their positions in the conflict zone in the Donbas region.

In 2016, Ukroboronprom set a course for ensuring high-tech production, reaching international (NATO) standards and equipping the Ukrainian army with the most advanced weapons.
