European Pravda reports, referencing the briefing at the Media Center Ukraine – Ukrinform, that according to the Ambassador of Ukraine to Türkiye, Vasily Bodnar, the project for the manufacturing plant to produce Turkish drones Bayraktar TB2 has been completed. Additionally, the necessary legal framework has been established.
“As of today, the entire legal framework has been established, the applicable international agreement has been ratified, and, as you are aware, a company is currently operating in Ukraine and has completed the planning preparation. We anticipate that the plant will start manufacturing production with Ukrainian components within the next two years,” Bodnar noted.
The Ambassador also stated, “This is an indication of how closely we work together and will hopefully lead to the future strengthening of Ukraine’s security.”
The agreement between Ukraine and Türkiye on cooperation in the high-tech, aviation, and space sectors, which will permit the production of Bayraktar in Ukraine, was signed in February 2022, before Russia’s full-scale invasion.
