It was announced by Ukroboronprom Deputy Head Denys Hurak at the 6th international conference on security governance in Kiev, Wednesday, February 1, 2017.

He did not elaborate on the plans, saying that the content and potential of programs for bilateral military and technical cooperation with Ankara and Warsaw will be serious.

Ukroboronprom also plans to open representative offices in Brussels and Washington, DC, Hurak said. In his words, these are medium-term plans.

Currently, Ukroboronprom, which was created under a presidential order in December 2010, consists of 112 Ukrainian enterprises of the military and defense industry.

Interfax-Ukraine learnt from sources in the defense sector that Ukraine may take part in a number of Turkey's defense programs for the development of certain types of military hardware, including the creation of a Turkish fighter jet and a Turkish Altay third-generation main battle tank (MBT). Currently, Ukroboronprom and Turkish Aselsan are eyeing the possibility of establishing technological cooperation in the production of electronic and optical components.

In addition, Kyiv is also working on plans to boost military technical cooperation with Warsaw. Among the promising areas of the bilateral cooperation is the joint creation of new models of unmanned aerial vehicles for the Armed Forced of Ukraine, retrofitting of Polish fighters, modernization of electronic and optical components of Ukrainian armored vehicles, and the development of new air defense systems.


In 2015, Poland's WB Electronics and Ukroboronprom agreed on the use of the Polish company's technology for the creation of Ukrainian unmanned aerial vehicles for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. In December 2016, the partners signed an agreement on cooperation in the development of new air defense systems.
