Ukraine and the Czech Republic signed a joint memorandum for cooperation in the production of weapons, ammunition, and armored vehicles modernization, Minister for Strategic Industries of Ukraine Oleksandr Kamyshin reported.

A Czech delegation is expected to arrive in Ukraine in the near future to develop the agreements reached between the Ukrainian and Czech sides and to sign specific contracts.

Earlier, the Czech President Petr Pavel announced plans for six projects for military cooperation with Ukraine, He said the companies Sellier & Bellot, Aero Vodochody, Czechoslovak Group, Vojensky opravarensky podnik will participate and the projects will deal with the production of ammunition and small arms, repair and modernization of Soviet-era T-64 and T-72 tanks, and joint production of F/A-259 aircraft.

Since the Russian full-scale invasion, Ukraine has established several joint partnerships to produce weapons and ammunition with NATO countries.

The partnerships were signed with Ukroboronprom, Ukraine’s weapons conglomerate. Recently, it was succeeded by the Ukrainian Defense Industry and received a new head.
