The products of Ukrainian companies increasingly arouse heightened interest in Africa, Asia, and LATAM, – noted Dmytro Poliakov, First Deputy Director-General at Ukrainian Armor. –. Lately, Ukraine and Brazil signed a Memorandum of Understanding on scientific and technical cooperation in the defense sector and commoditization of defense products. This fact proves our country does have potential. Given that the government provides the industry with the all-out support, we may soon regain our position among the global defense leaders.”
