Ukraine's MoD accelerates delivery of new weapons to AFU: process will last up to 20 days
The Ukrainian Ministry of Defense is fast-tracking the delivery of new weapons and equipment to the Armed Forces. The entire process, from contract development to weapon receipt, is expected to take up to 20 days
This was reported on the Ministry of Defense website.
Changes to Cabinet Resolution No. 345 of February 25, 2015, have facilitated the acceleration of weapon supply processes.
"The alterations anticipate a shortened timeframe of 20 days for delivering new weapons and military equipment. This duration may vary based on the manufacturer's material quality and completeness," states the message.
Previously, the equipment supply procedure involved six stages, often lasting months. The recent changes eliminated the need for coordinating an admission-to-operation order with various Ministry of Defense and General Staff structures.
Other stages will also see reductions. New weapons will undergo immediate testing on the battlefield, and successful results will negate the need for additional tests, exemplified by the wheeled self-propelled howitzer "Bohdana."
Furthermore, government customers can now acquire "micro" and "mini" class civilian or dual-purpose drones for potential conversion into combat use, even without formal approval or codification.
