NSDC secretary: Latest samples of weapons to be used on the front line soon

Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine (NSDC) Oleksandr Turchynov has said that the latest samples of weapons and military equipment will soon be used on the front line.

He told journalists following the opening of the XIV International Specialized Exhibition "Arms and Security-2017, the NSDC press service reports.

"There are interesting developments, which are very important and which are awaited in the area of military operation,” he said adding that this primarily refers to the means of combating UAVs, presented at the exhibition.

Turchynov noted that many types of weapons and equipment presented at the exhibition are already used in the ATO area.

The NSDC secretary also said the field tests of such weapons and equipment would be held soon - first at proving grounds, and then they will be used on the front line.

"It is a matter of principle for us to reduce the time from the development of weapons and military equipment to their use in combat conditions.

In addition, Turchynov said that holding of such international exhibitions is very important for Ukraine.

“Such events promote the development of domestic defense industry and promote the unification of enterprises from various countries to solve certain defense and security tasks".
