Ukraine’s Defense Ministry plans to purchase used warships of NATO countries, the Commander of Ukraine’s Naval Forces Igor Voronchenko states on the air of the 5th Channel.
He added that Ukrainian partner countries had considered this issue as prospective and Kiev could receive the warships according to specified payment schemes.
“One group of Ukraine’s Naval Forces Officers has come back, I can’t mention countries because I have no rights owing to the border where one decision has been positively considered. The second group has been scheduled for September,” highlighted Voronenko.
He also explained that purchase of the written-off warships could solve the problem with Ukraine’s Naval Forces equipment list in particular, the issue of buying a mine-sweeping complex.
