Defense and industrial complex of Ukraine appeared in poor situation: military and technical cooperation with Russia gradually reduces due to Ukraine’s official statements concerning intentions to join Euro-Atlantic structures. But within this, Ukraine still has not managed to arrange joint work with NATO.

Number of Ukrainian-Russian projects in the sphere of defense and industrial complex has reduced by 8-10% by the latter half of 2005 year.

“If Ukraine declares about its course for NATO, it becomes dangerous to work with it,” as considers Evgeny Minchenko, aid of the head of Russia Duma committee on CIS affairs.

According to experts, Russia cuts down joint projects with Ukraine as the strategic interests of the two countries do not coincide. Alexander Kuz’muk, former Defense Minister of Ukraine, considers such state of affairs a mistake.
