The agreement between VOP CZ and Ukroboronprom was signed on 8 February this year. Cooperation provides cooperation in the field of production of military equipment, increase in the production of ammunition of various calibers, development of service centers for maintenance and repair, and high technologies.

On November 18, Ukroboronprom announced that it would jointly manufacture and develop heavy weapons and military equipment with at least six NATO countries, primarily Poland, the Czech Republic, France and Denmark. The state concern noted that they established joint defense enterprises, built closed-circuit ammunition production lines, jointly produced armored vehicles and multiple launch rocket systems, and jointly developed new high-tech weapons.

Russia had previously sent a note to NATO countries for arms supplies to Ukraine. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov noted that any cargo containing weapons for Ukraine would become a legitimate target for Russia. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation reported that NATO countries were “playing with fire” by supplying weapons to Ukraine. The Kremlin stated that pumping weapons into Ukraine from the West did not contribute to the success of the Russia-Ukraine negotiations and would have a negative impact. Lavrov also noted that the United States and NATO are directly involved in the conflict in Ukraine, “including not only the supply of weapons, but also the training of personnel … in Britain, Germany, Italy and other countries.”
