Turchynov: Ukrainian army to be rearmed

02-04-2014 16:58

The task of rearming the Ukrainian Armed Forces is currently on the agenda, Interim Ukrainian President and Verkhovna Rada Chairman Oleksandr Turchynov said at a briefing in the village of Desna on Wednesday, where he visited a military training ground.

"In a short time the Ukrainian Armed Forces will be put on full combat alert, and the task of rearming the Armed Forces is currently on the agenda," the presidential press service quoted Turchynov as saying. He said that the military-industrial complex, "which will revive and receive state orders," could ensure a complete closed cycle of production. He said that despite the very difficult economic situation, the government would allocate funds not only for the army, but also for rearmament. "This is a strategic task that must be fulfilled... Ukraine faced serious problems in the Armed Forces, we are currently restoring the army actually from a new mark," he said. The combat capabilities of Ukrainian weapons were demonstrated at the firing ground, as well as promising samples that are to be transferred to the arsenal of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, in particular, small arms, means of protection, communications, ammunition, and weapons of destruction. The exercises on testing the running and fighting capabilities of military equipment were also conducted.
