Russian Defense Ministry is planning to substitute 95 percent of imports from Ukraine, Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov said Tuesday.

VLADIVOSTOK, June 24 (RIA Novosti) - Russian Defense Ministry is planning to substitute 95 percent of imports from Ukraine, Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov said Tuesday.

“The work is on schedule. The whole process of import substitution will carry on as planned, and by the end of the specified period, dependence on supplies from Ukraine will be decreased by 95 percent,” Borisov said during a visit to an aircraft factory in Russia’s Far East.

Borisov noted that the schedule for import substitution has already been devised, the available stockpiles of components have been analyzed, and the ministry is preparing for the production of all the necessary components, led by a respective point person.

Against the background of Kiev’s ongoing special operation in the country’s east, the recently elected president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko banned any cooperation in the military-industrial complex with Russia.

Responding to the initiative, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin stated, that Russia already has a plan on import substitution of military products from Ukraine and it will take some 2,5 years to completely withdraw from importing the Ukrainian defense products.
