Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal said this at the opening of the 5th German-Ukrainian Business Forum in Berlin on Monday, October 24, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.
"No army on our continent has the kind of experience that, unfortunately, we have today. This is the experience of a continuous, almost nine-year war. Ukraine is aiming to create a high-tech military-industrial complex, including thanks to European and world military technologies, attracting investments in design developments and the construction of military production facilities," Shmyhal said.
According to him, European companies specializing in the production of weapons will be part of this project. Military technologies will drive innovation forward, and the defense cluster will stimulate the development of related industries, Shmyhal said.
Russia's full-scale armed aggression has been ongoing in Ukraine since February 24.
