Ukraine has established serial production of the domestic analogue of “Shakheds”.
Dozens of such drones are produced per month, informs RBC-Ukraine with reference to the Minister of Strategic Industries Oleksandr Kamyshin.
According to him, the defense sector makes an important contribution to the country’s economy. In the future, it should become the main sector of the Ukrainian economy.
“Starting with what is called “Ukrainian Shahed”, we do not say the name of this product, but we started mass production of it and now (produce) dozens a month, continuing with many other items, which we previously produced very little, but now we have decent numbers,” said the minister.
He added that the government is not satisfied with a multiple increase in production: “We are satisfied with a tenfold increase or more. We have such growth in many directions.”
Kamyshin emphasized that now there is no question of integrating Ukroboronprom with business.
But the state-owned plant helps private small drone companies.
“In this regard, the “Ukrainian Shahed” appeared precisely at the state factory,” the minister emphasized.
