Ukraine’s main aerospace and defence company also reported on May 12 that it had sustained damages worth over $3.4 billion due to Russia’s war.

Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion of Ukraine by the Russian army, Ukroboronprom’s enterprises have already restored trophy equipment worth 1.5 billion hryvnias. “The financial losses of the occupiers on Ukrainian soil are growing. “Ukroboronprom’s enterprises have restored the seized equipment at a total cost of one and a half billion hryvnias,” the company said.

The country’s main defence industry association, Ukroboronprom, said the Ukrainian military was working to protect the country’s functioning defence infrastructure, but it was unknown how long the defence would last and China would suffer the most after this conflict.

Earlier, Ukraine has offered a million dollars to every Russian pilot who will retire from the military and hand over his military aircraft in working order. This proposal seems to be an attempt to exploit the low morale of Russian troops as the war approaches its third week. The award was made by the Ukrainian state arms manufacturer Ukroboronprom with the support of the Ministry of Defense.

Ukroboronprom will also offer half a million dollars to fighter helicopter pilots handing overworking fighter jets. In a direct appeal to the Russian Armed Forces, Ukroboronprom said: “We guarantee you $ 1 million for each stolen or trophy plane of the occupiers and $ 500,000 for each combat helicopter of the Russian Air Force.
