"This type of weapons will be high-precision, modern and compliant with NATO standards," it said.

As UNIAN reported, the Ukrainian military in early December successfully tested the "Neptun" anti-ship missile.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko earlier announced a number of priority tasks for 2019 to create artillery rocket systems, mainly the "Vilkha" ("Alder") project with an increased range of destruction.

Ukraine is also finalizing the development of a number of new domestic weapons, such as the "Bohdana" 155mm wheeled self-propelled howitzer and artillery ammunition for it; the "Kvitnyk" ("Flower bed") precision-guided munitions, a two-caliber mortar, the "Sokil" ("Falcon") reconnaissance and strike drone complex, and the "Kolibri" MANPADS.
