All weapons that cross the Ukrainian border are under close control of the state and our partners. This was stated by Oleksiy Danilov, Secretary of the National Security and Defence Council of Ukraine, during the presentation of the SOTA information and analytical system module on monitoring the supply of weapons from partner countries to Ukraine.
This module consists of three dimensions: publicly available information, information for official use, and confidential information.
The module allows monitoring new arms supplies by status (for example, ready for shipment, on the way, or received by the Armed Forces of Ukraine) and donor countries, analyse arms supplies over time, by periods of adoption, compliance with NATO standards, classification of Soviet weapons, etc.
The module is integrated with the portal of the SOTA system for monitoring the situation on the front line, the deployment of enemy forces, missile strikes on the territory of Ukraine, shelling of populated localities, geographical reference of messages related to military operations, emergency situations, and high-profile statements in the media.
The NSDC Secretary noted that the Russian Federation was currently conducting a powerful information campaign to discredit Ukraine by accusing it of the alleged sale of weapons to third countries to disrupt arms supplies among other things. According to him, the higher military and political leadership have access to the SOTA system. Thanks to this system, “we know that not a single bullet supplied has disappeared anywhere.”
In turn, Minister of Defence of Ukraine Oleksii Reznikov said that the supply of weapons was controlled by three systems, in particular, SOTA and NATO LOGFAS (Logistics Functional Area Services), which Ukraine received in 2019. Now, Ukrainian experts, together with Pentagon specialists, are finalising another control system that will soon be used in full.
The NSDC Secretary and the Minister of Defence of Ukraine also stated that the Russian Federation would not be able to disrupt the supply of weapons to our country.
