The weapons used by Ukraine in the war were mainly manufactured or modernized by enterprises of the domestic military-industrial complex. Nataliya Sad, Spokeswoman of the Ukroboronprom State Concern, made this statement at a briefing at Media Center Ukraine — Ukrinform.

“We have already started repair and maintenance of some Western and foreign weapons, this equipment must be used to fight on the side of Ukraine. Such work is carried out along with repair, maintenance, and production of our Ukrainian weapons. Today, for some reason, there is an opinion in society that only HIMARS and other units of high-tech, long-range weapons are being used to fight and win. But if we talk about the ratio of Ukrainian and foreign weapons, it is far from 50 to 50 and far from 60 to 40. That is, we still continue to fight with the weapons that are manufactured and modernized by the enterprises of the state military-industrial complex, the enterprises of Ukroboronprom.

These are huge changes, taking into account that the needs are growing every day and every month,” — Sad said.
