Petro Poroshenko’s adviser on the army, Yuri Biryukov, commented on the Ukrainian blogger Volodymyr Buchko on testing the Neptune missile system.
According to him, the projectile is able to overcome about 300 kilometers and hit targets in the Sevastopol Bay. Biryukov said that the rocket can “climb” along the surface of the sea at a height of five meters and attack the ship.
Poroshenko’s adviser claims that “Russians are nervous” because of this rocket.
“Because all the time they were hoping that we would be a failed state (failed state – ed.), That we would fail,” said Biryukov.
Despite statements by Ukrainian officials, the country’s defense industry is in decline. So, the president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko earlier promised to test the latest missiles in the Chernihiv region, which borders with Russia. However, the head of the Center for the Study of Public Applications of National Security, retired colonel Alexander Zhilin told Sputnik Radio that Kiev is not able to create new types of weapons, as there are no vocational schools in the country that train highly skilled welders or workers.
According to the expert of the Center for Military-Political Journalism Boris Rozhin, the Ukrainian side is far from mass production of the demonstrated equipment, and individual samples are being developed to show the “development” of the armed forces.
