Turkey’s Baykar to Provide More Combat Drones to Ukraine

Amid evolving aerial threats, Turkish aerospace firm, Baykar Defence, will supply more Bayraktar TB2 combat drones to the Ukrainian Armed Forces to bolster the country’s defence capabilities, the Ukrainian Defence Ministry announced.
According to the Ukrainian Defence Minister, Oleksii Reznikov, the country will acquire more Bayraktar drones next year.
He pointed out that the new equipment will be called “Ukrainian Bayraktars”, though produced in Turkey.
Last month, the Kremlin said that Turkey’s supply of drones to Ukraine risks destabilizing the eastern Ukraine conflict, despite Moscow’s “special” relations with Ankara.
