According to Romanov, one of the priorities of the Ukrainian military and industrial complex is to adopt international standards in arms and military equipment production.

"Turkey is a NATO member, therefore, this experience will allow Ukraine to deepen its military cooperation with NATO countries," the press service went on to say.
