The military-industrial complex of Ukraine we’ve worked very well and gave the finished product — advanced anti-missile systems “Stugna”, “Le Corsaire”, which meet all existing standards. We have a tank threat from Donetsk and Lugansk, because this is the territory of the Russian Federation has more than 700 tanks, so to adequately respond to the threat we provided this year, the priority of the modernization of weapons and military equipment. There are four strategic areas in which we work and which are defined in the state defense order for this year. All of our strategic directions are focused on the strategic threats”, – said Poltorak.
