Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has said the state-owned enterprise Kyiv Armored Plant, which is part of Ukroboronprom State Concern, improved the T-72A tank.

"The T-72A tank became even more effective," he wrote on Facebook, adding video.

According to Poroshenko, the plant took into account the experience of the military in the ATO zone during modernization.

He also added that the Ukrainian army would get the Ukrainian-made Oplot main battle tanks due to the changes in the state budget for 2017.
