The high-level Ukrainian delegation will visit the international specialized exhibition "Aero India 2019" starting on February 20 in Bangalore (India). The organizer of the Ukrainian delegation's participation in this event is the Spetstechnoexport company.
During this international event, the Ukrainian side is planning to introduce An-132-D transport aircraft, which could potentially completely replace the An-32 aircraft park of the Indian Air Force in the future. Moreover, An-132-D will carry out two demonstration flights.
It is also planned to present new equipment and weapons of Ukrainian production. A new counter-battery radar, a deep radar modernization project, missiles for "Pechora" S-125 system, and other defensive products in need for the Indian armed forces will be presented.
Before the exhibition starts, the First Deputy to the Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleg Hladkovskiy held a meeting with Ambassador of India to Ukraine Partha Satpathy. The parties discussed possible ways of expanding military-technical cooperation, in particular, in the aviation sphere. Mr. Hladkovskiy confirmed Ukraine's interest in strategic cooperation with India in the export of military- and aviation-related products, as well as the provision of services for the repair and modernization of equipment for the needs of defense agencies. Also, according to him, the Ukrainian side is fully open for joint projects in military-technical cooperation under the program Make in India.
India today can expand its bilateral cooperation with Ukraine as a country-developer of high-tech equipment and armaments, in particular, gas turbine engines for ships, aircraft engines, and modern armored vehicles. Issues of expanding cooperation will also be discussed during meetings within the framework of the international exhibition AeroIndia 2019.
