The NSDC secretary believes the developments shown at the exhibition should be highly commended by the Ukrainian military: "This refers to a fundamentally new armor for our tanks and armored personnel carriers, systems defense systems and new camouflage coatings that allow to remain invisible even in the infrared light spectrum and many other inventions that will significantly strengthen our defense capability."

According to him, it is noteworthy that the opening of the exhibition takes place on the Day of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, "in fact, this exhibition is the greeting from the scientists to our glorious warriors with their professional holiday."

"Courage, professionalism, and patriotism of our soldiers and officers are not enough to counteract the military aggression of a violent and powerful enemy; they need new modern effective weapons and military hardware, which is impossible to produce without in-depth research and development," Turchynov said.

"Without mobilizing the nation's scientific and technological expertise, without turning the country's mental capacity into a powerful weapon, we will not be able to win this war. This is a major problem and a priority task," he concluded.
