"We are adding components and spare parts for ground military equipment to the list of military and dual-use goods that can be imported without permission from the State Export Control Service. This includes components for armoured vehicles and specially equipped vehicles. We are also adding components for manned aircraft to the list," said Yuliia Svyrydenko, First Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine and Minister of Economy of Ukraine.

According to Svyrydenko, the simplification of the process should significantly enhance the ability to quickly restore military equipment. In addition, any company that has the appropriate facilities and specialists will be able to repair equipment for the frontline. 

The Ministry emphasises that the permit procedure remains in place for the import of goods whose international transfers (imports) are reported by Ukraine to international organisations and for the import of goods that can be used for terrorist purposes and the circulation of which is restricted by law in Ukraine. In this way, Ukraine fulfils all its international obligations in good faith.


  • This year, the Cabinet of Ministers has allocated UAH 40 billion for the production of Ukrainian drones.
  • The Cabinet of Ministers approved the proposal of the Ministry of Strategic Industries, the Ministry of Defence and the Ministry of Digital Transformation to implement a pilot project for the production, procurement and supply of ammunition for UAVs and combat units of uncrewed systems.
