This was said by Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Oleksandr Turchynov, Censor.NET reports citing the NSDC press office.
"At each stage, various missile performance parameters were checked. Namely, target accuracy at the maximum and minimum ranges, warhead capacity and destruction efficiency, multiple destruction of dispersed targets, etc.," the official said.
Turchynov noted that the government commission decided to put the missile into operational service while its mass production will be launched as early as this year.
"This is a great collective success of Ukrainian scientists, designers, manufacturers, and military who managed to complete the most ambitious task within the shortest time possible," he stressed.
President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, top military officials, experts, and military attaches from seven countries, who expressed their interest in negotiating supplies of new, powerful Ukrainian weapons, attended the testing. "Despite the great interest demonstrated by our foreign partners, supplying the missile systems to our Armed Forces remains our top priority," the NSDC secretary emphasized.
Turchynov also dwelled on the pace of the national missile program implementation, "which priorities particularly include the creation of new powerful cruise and antiaircraft missiles for our army."
