"I would like to reassure everybody that there are many of us in Congress who are keeping an eye and working towards helping Ukraine and the rest of Europe to ensure that the aggressive posture that we have seen from Mr. Putin does not go unchecked," Sanchez emphasized.
According to Romanov, cooperation with the U.S. over the project foresees three stages: supply of ready-to-operate systems and their assembling in Ukraine by Ukroboronprom professionals, passing technologies to the Ukrainian side, and production of systems by Ukrainian companies. Ukroboronprom's production capacities in Khmelnytskyi, Ternopil and Kyiv will be utilized.

"We have added Ukraine to the list of these countries, assuming that it has a huge potential in manufacturing short-range cruise missiles for the needs of all European states. I see prospects in Ukraine-US cooperation concerning particular element of the military sector", Sanchez pointed out.
