For all ordered products, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine has already sent an advance payment. Information on the timing of the delivery of products will come from the NATO agency shortly.

In addition, a contract was signed with a Turkish company for the supply of armor-piercing incendiary and blank ammunition for sniper rifles of 12.7 mm caliber.

Almost all of the above products were supplied to the Armed Forces of Ukraine before. The only exceptions are Bozena demining UGVs.

New purchases are a necessity for Ukraine in the sense that it has signed an agreement on cooperation with NATO countries in the military-technical sphere. For the execution of this agreement, it is necessary to place orders primarily in the NATO military-industrial environment.
