Ukraine expects to receive two border control systems by the end of 2015, and another six are due to be delivered in 2016, First Deputy Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine (NSDC) Oleh Hladkovsky has said.
"We're waiting for delivery of two border control systems by the end of this year and another six in 2016," Hladkovsky said at a press conference in Los Angeles to mark the handing over of the first long-range early warning system for border control, supervision, and identification of enemy machinery, which was produced by Aeroscraft (Aeros) U.S. corporation.
The NSDC press service reported on Monday that the systems will enable 24 hours observation over the border that will speed up the coordination of actions taken in response to any military threat.
According to Hladkovsky, the beginning of the cooperation with Aeros corporation involving Ukroboronprom state-run concern "is an important step on the way to bilateral Ukrainian-U.S. cooperation in the sphere of strengthening Ukrainian border protection."
Chief of the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine General Colonel Viktor Nazarenko, Aeros Director General Ihor Pasternak, and member of California State Assembly Matt Dababneh also participated in the event.
