Over 40 import contracts on the deliveries of defensive equipment for the Ukrainian army, with their total value of $1.5 billion, are currently carried out.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said this during his annual address in the Verkhovna Rada on September 6, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“We praise the support from the side of our western partners. Over 40 import contracts on the deliveries of defensive equipment for the Ukrainian army are currently implemented, with their total value amounting to $1.5 billion. Our friends gave us armored vehicles, unmanned aerial vehicles, surveillance and communication means. Several weeks ago we received a large shipment of night vision equipment and another one is about to arrive,” Poroshenko said.

The President also noted that Ukraine, first of all, should rely on its own forces, own army, and own military and industrial complex.
