Oleksandr Turchynov noted that the armored vehicles need to be improved and will be upgraded by the Ukroboronprom State Concern in the near future to meet requirements of the army. "These Saxons were delivered without weapons. We will install overhead weapon stations on them. These stations should provide effective fire cover to the National Guard or other detachments that will operate the vehicles," he said.
