The Government relies on the development of the Ukrainian military-industrial complex. It is based on new design solutions, manufacturability, technology transfer, and the creation of joint ventures with allies and partners, Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal stated during a government session.
At a meeting on October 10, the Government approved a resolution to simplify the import of raw materials for the production of ammunition and UAV warheads. This will ensure that Ukrainian needs are met and allow for increasing the production of drones.
"The Government has simplified the import of drones to the greatest extent possible. It has expanded the list of military and dual-use goods that can be imported without the permission of the State Export Control Service. We have removed bureaucratic obstacles to the procurement of Ukrainian drones," the Prime Minister said and added that this year the production of UAVs had already grown a hundredfold and would grow even more.
Denys Shmyhal noted that in the draft budget for 2024, the Government had envisaged almost ₴1.7 trillion for security and defense. Of this amount, about ₴56 billion is intended for military production and more than ₴48 billion for the replenishment and development of the drone army.
