Ukraine, Brazil to work on defense developments – Ukroboronprom


Representatives of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry, the Ministry of Strategic Industries and Ukroboronprom and their Brazilian colleagues have discussed the possibility of implementing joint projects.

This issue was discussed during an international video conference on key areas of cooperation between Ukraine and Brazil in the defense industry, Ukroboronprom’s press service reported.

“The current state of cooperation between the defense industries and ways to intensify it were discussed during the conference. Each side presented its vision of potential topics for further dialogue. The SpetsTechnoExport director, in addition to proposals for the supply of modern weapons and military equipment, spoke about the prospects of cooperation in the field of joint developments and voiced the proposals of the Ukrainian side on possible areas of such cooperation,” the report reads.

According to the report, both parties agreed to further sign two memoranda – on mutual understanding on the development of production and commercial use of defense production and on mutual understanding on scientific and technical cooperation in the defense sector. The documents are to be signed as part of the next stage of the dialogue, which will take place during the visit of the Brazilian delegation to Ukraine in October this year.

The company’s press service also said that representatives of Brazil will visit Ukrainian manufacturing plants and test sites.

  1. A welcome bit of news.
    Truthfully, I wish that the West in particular the US would cooperate more with Ukraine and especially with Motor Sich. I’m certain that Pratt & Whitney, Rolls Royce and General Electric won’t go under in the process.

What is your opinion?
