Ukraine presented at the VIII International Exhibition of Armament, Military Equipment and Ammunition in Nizhny Tagil (RF) dimensional layout of the new engine 5TDFM. Experts recognized him as the best in the world in its class.

As the press service of the state-owned company Ukrspetsexport, which together with the Ukroboronprom Group of Companies represents Ukraine at this forum, said, “the exposition of our country is characterized by a high level of attendance and expert interest.” In particular, the leaders of the Ukrainian delegation held talks with Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation Dmitry Bulgakov on cooperation in the armored industry.
