The State concern Ukroboronprom ceased delivery of weapons and military equipment to the Russian Federation, wrote CEO of the concern, Yuriy Tereshchenko, in an article for ZN.UA. “The question of militarytechnical cooperation with Russia must be answered. For obvious reasons,we are already not supplying Russia with weapons and military equipment. Our relationship will remain frozen until the conflict de-escalates. Yes, we will bear economic losses but is it wise to arm the army of the enemy?” writes Tereshchenko.

” I am confident that our relationship with Russia, including economic and military technical cooperation, deserves consideration and action at the highest state level, the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine,” he said. There was a scandal on March 13: it turned out that despite the overt aggression of Russia, the newly appointed head of the Ukroboronprom, Valentyna Drozd, continued to supply military equipment.
