Ukraine will invest 200 billion hryvnias (about $7.50 billion at the current exchange rate) in the development of the country's missile armament until 2031. This was announced on Friday by Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksiy Danilov.
"The Security Council reviewed in secret and approved the program of missile armament of Ukraine until 2031" he said at a briefing broadcast on Facebook. Danilov said that they plan to spend more than 200 billion hryvnias for these purposes.
According to him, Ukraine "cannot wait from our partners whether or not they will provide us with this or that weapon." "Our task is to make weapons of our own production," the NSDC secretary stressed. In this regard, he noted that the Verkhovna Rada this year should make changes to the state budget and allocate 3.3 billion hryvnias (about $120 million) for the program for the production of missile weapons, so that Ukraine could "ensure its defense capability as soon as possible."

Still, if they can find some spares of Oka, they can end up with 3 pieces of second to Iskander missiles.
That makes a difference.
