Ukraine plans to develop its own missile system by the year 2011.

Commander-in-Chief of the Ukrainian Land Force general lieutenant Valeriy Frolov claimed this after exercises in the Khmelnytska Oblast, according to the Ukrainian Defense Ministry’s press-service.

“We expect to get a modern missile system of a native production by the year 2011”, he said.
