Since the end of February, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have received about 50 Bayraktar TB2 drones. Official Kyiv is busy negotiating with Ankara about launching an enterprise that will specialize in the production of drones. This became known from A. Reznikov.
The head of the defense department noted that this project will be implemented in Ukraine in the medium term. As a result, Ukraine will be able to independently produce combat aircraft, which are so in demand at the front.
The Minister of Defense stressed that the ministry he leads has concluded several contracts with Baykar Technologies for the supply of attack drones. The first contracted drones will arrive in the country next month. Reznikov added that in the near future, almost all the production facilities of Baykar Technologies will be used to meet the needs of the Ukrainian army in attack drones. In total, several dozen Turkish UAVs will be transferred to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
