A new impetus for the development of the aircraft industry in Ukraine

Yesterday, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky signed a Decree on the implementation of the decision of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine of June 4, 2021 "On the development of the aircraft industry of Ukraine."

As the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Defense Industry and Technical Modernization of the Verkhovna Rada’s Committee on National Security, Defense and Intelligence, which is directly responsible for the development of the potential of the aviation industry, I welcome this decision of the President.

This marks Volodymyr Zelensky’s significant support of the aircraft builders and Committee's initiatives in this direction. This step is especially important in the framework of state projects, such as the construction of An-74 and An-178 aircraft, which are necessary for the needs of the Armed Forces.

We will continue to exercise effective parliamentary control and make every effort to develop Ukrainian aviation.
