Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov held a working meeting with developer of the mobile cruise missile system, general designer of the "Luch" design bureau Oleh Korostylov.

During the meeting, the issue of preparing the mobile cruise missile system for new tests and the measures necessary to prepare them for serial production were discussed.

"The mobile system of "Neptune" cruise missiles, which can destroy naval and land targets, should be one of the main strike systems to ensure the protection of the Black Sea and Azov coasts after all tests are completed and the system put on armament", - the NSDC Secretary emphasized.

Mr. Turchynov expressed gratitude to the leadership and the engineering staff of the "Luch" design bureau as well as the labor collectives of the partner enterprises "for the quality implementation of a large-scale project in record time".
