From Interfax-Ukraine: Ukraine is interested in joining the building of a common missile defense system with NATO, Anatoly Hrytsenko said, the head of the Ukrainian parliamentary committee on national security and defense.
"We are interested in participating in the building of a joint missile defense system and developing our technologies and creating new jobs through this. In my view, we have more reasons for direct cooperation [with NATO] than many of the two scores of Euro-Atlantic partners," Hrytsenko told journalists following a meeting between a group of Ukrainian parliamentarians and NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen in Kyiv on Thursday.
