    Next year, as well as this year, building a strong army will be the main task of the Government, announced Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal in his opening statement during a regular session of the Government on December 30.

    “The resources we spent in 2022 and budgeted for 2023 clearly demonstrate this. During the full-scale war, the Government has allocated more than UAH 1.2 trillion for the security and defense sector. We have significantly increased payments to all military personnel. More than UAH 250 billion were allocated for the purchase and modernization of weapons and equipment that effectively destroys the occupiers,” stressed Denys Shmyhal.

    According to the Prime Minister, there have been created new mechanisms of security support for Ukraine, among which the key place was occupied by the Ramstein format that united 50 countries.

    Moreover, a number of long-term contracts for the production of weapons for Ukraine have been concluded, to be financed by the governments of the United States, Germany, Denmark, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Norway and other our partner countries over the next 2-3 years. Denys Shmyhal emphasized Ukraine continued to actively produce its own weapons.

    “We have applied for NATO membership. We are introducing the best standards of the Alliance in logistics, planning, and accountability. The Ukrainian army, without exaggeration, is now one of the strongest in Europe and the world. And our army will bring us victory. And we will work to ensure that it is provided in the best possible way,” noted the Head of Government.
