Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine: Half of Ukrainian tanks have been modernized
Half tanks, which are in service with the Armed Forces of Ukraine, has undergone modernization. This was stated by the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Lieutenant General Valery Zaluzhny.
In an interview with Radio Liberty, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, answering a question about plans to modernize Soviet equipment in service with the Ukrainian army, said that such work was being carried out. According to him, today Ukraine does not have all the capabilities to modernize tanks, since not everything necessary is produced at Ukrainian enterprises, but it can carry it out on its own.
Zaluzhny noted that at the moment, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have already modernized 50% of the tanks in service. There are plans to modernize the second half, but this requires the state to allocate money for this.
- said the commander in chief.
Currently, two Ukrainian enterprises are engaged in the modernization of tanks - the Kharkov Armored Plant and the Lvov Armored Plant. In Kharkov and Lvov, the T-64 and T-72, left over from the Soviet army and in service with the Armed Forces of Ukraine, are being modernized.
