Quote from Peskov: "If the "Bayraktar" manufacturing plant is created in Ukraine, then (it) will immediately fall under "demilitarisation".

Background:

  • On 8 August, it became known that the manufacturer of unmanned combat aerial vehicles Bayraktar has been registered in Ukraine and purchased a plot of land for the construction of a plant. In addition, literally a week ago, the government approved a bilateral agreement on the construction of the plant and sent it to the parliament for ratification.

  • In February, during the meeting of the presidents in Kyiv, Ukraine and Turkey signed an agreement expanding the production of unmanned combat aerial vehicles by the Turkish company "Baykar" in Ukraine.

  • Haluk Bayraktar, the director of the Turkish drone manufacturer "Baykar", and Taras Chmut, the director of the Come Back Alive Foundation, signed a memorandum on further partnership in Istanbul.
