The military-industrial complex of Ukraine has lost its competitiveness and faced active competition from Russia on world markets. This was stated by the CEO of the company “Ukrspetsexport” Vadim Nozdrya.
According to Nozdri, Russia is very actively competing with Ukraine in its “basic markets”, including applying diplomacy. The main reason for the loss of competitiveness of Ukrainian military products, he called the loss of advantages, economic and political problems, and also the break of the set “operational links”. At the same time, Russia does not have such problems.
Unfortunately, Ukraine has long dropped out of the top ten (global arms exporters. - approx). Unfortunately, we also fall out of the second ten. Competition in foreign markets is constantly growing (…) Ukrainian products for the last 10-15 years has largely lost its competitiveness. Because our competitors do not have such problems in the economic and political plane, as Ukraine has. Many operational ties have been severed
– stated Nostril.
After the collapse of the Soviet Union and the proclamation of an independent Ukraine, about 17% from the entire military-industrial complex of the USSR, which in total amounted to about two thousand enterprises and organizations. However, over the years, most of these enterprises have been liquidated., this trend continues.
