General Poltorak said about it at the XIV International specialized exhibition ‘Arms and Security – 2017’.

“It is time-consuming to put equipment into service and make it more effective. If we compare first Ukrainian anti-tank systems Stuhna and Korsar and their current versions, we’ll see the difference. That’s why the acquisition volumes are being increased,” the Minister said, “This year we have amended the state defence order and plan to increase the order of antitank guided missiles Stuhna and Korsar”.

He also mentioned, ‘If we compare current tasks and capabilities, now we have the equipment permitting us to accomplish combat tasks’.

“But we understand that equipment should undergo modifications and modernizations. Our priorities for the next year are air defence equipment, anti-tank equipment, electronic warfare equipment, unmanned aerial vehicles, other spheres which will boost combat capabilities of our Armed Forces,” the Minister informed.
