Designers and producers of the tested 120 mm mortars told the NSDC secretary that they have included all feedback by the Ukrainian military who had used this type of weapon in combat.

Turchynov said 60 mm Ukraine-made mortars have a potential to be used in the Donbas as long as it is not banned by the Minsk agreements.

Among weapon supply priorities, Turchynov said, is production and delivery of ammunition, including large caliber. For that purposes, additional financing has been allocated in the state budget for this year.

Turchynov said Ukraine's army desperately needs new weapons to defend the country in the east. He named Stuhna systems as an example.
