KIEV, Oct. 8 (Xinhua) -- The Ukrainian Armed Forces received about 3,500 units of domestically-produced weapons and military equipment so far this year, the country's state defense conglomerate Ukroboronprom said on Monday.
Ukroboronprom, which unites more than 130 enterprises from Ukraine's defense industry, said in a statement that the supplies included over 2,000 units of brand new or modernized military hardware.
In particular, the Ukrainian manufacturers supplied the army with several hundreds of "Stugna", "Corsair" and "Barrier" anti-tank missile complexes, 30 aerial vehicles and two units of maritime equipment, the statement said.
Ukraine's defense industry has witnessed significant growth since 2014, when an armed conflict began in the country's eastern Donbas region.
In February this year, Ukroboronprom said that since 2014 it has supplied the Ukrainian armed forces with more than 18,600 units of weapons and military equipment, including armored vehicles, planes, helicopters, air defense systems, artillery systems and missiles.
