Details: The meeting with Troels Lund Poulsen resulted in the signing of a memorandum on the purchase of weapons and equipment from Ukrainian manufacturers.


"This is a confirmation that the Ukrainian defence industry is ready to cooperate at the international level and can meet the highest standards," Rustem Umierov said.

"The importance of this document lies in the fact that the parties have agreed on the procedure under which the financing will be carried out. Therefore, this process will be faster in the future.

Moreover, this mechanism can also be implemented as part of similar agreements with our other partners," said Serhii Boiev, Ukraine's Deputy Minister for Strategic Industries.


At the same time, a letter of intent has been signed with Dutch Defence Minister Kajsa Ollongren, which launches cooperation between Ukraine and the Netherlands to support the Ukrainian defence industrial base.
