President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko handed over new military hardware to the Ukrainian Armed Forces at an airfield near Kyiv.

As reported by Censor.NET citing a statement by the press service of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine (NSDC), the Ukrainian Armed Forces received powerful military equipment including MiG-29 multirole jet fighters, Su-27 heavy highly maneuverable all-weather jet fighters, combat and transport helicopters, L-39 training aircraft and unmanned aerial systems.

NSDC Secretary Oleksandr Turchynov, Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak and Chief of the General Staff Viktor Muzhenko, who also attended the ceremony, inspected Ukraine's new military transport aircraft An-77. The aircraft is "one of the best in its class and fully complies with NATO standards," Turchynov said.

"The aircraft needs just 800 meters of soft-surface runway for taking-off and landing, which makes it unique. It is capable of transporting large and heavy hardware, helicopters and 300 paratroopers and should become the main aircraft of the Ukrainian Air Assault Forces," he said.
