The Deputy Minister of Defense of Ukraine noted that it is necessary to increase not only the production of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), but also the production of electronic warfare.
The Ministry of Defense received additional resources for the purchase of drones. In December, Ukrainian troops will receive several times more drones. This was stated by the Deputy Minister of Defense of Ukraine, Lieutenant General Ivan Gavrilyuk in an interview with ArmyInform.
“On purpose, in recent months, our military has been receiving more drones of various types and modifications. But we must understand that, due to the intensity of combat operations in some sectors of the front, the UAVs, especially tactical ones, are essentially consumables,” he said.
Gavrilyuk added that drone supplies need to be replenished almost continuously, like shells.
“In November, we were able to send more UAVs to the troops than last month. We recently received additional resources for purchases. Therefore, in December, the Ukrainian Armed Forces will receive many times more drones. I hope the picture on the battlefield will change. ,” said the deputy minister.
According to him, it is necessary to increase not only the production of UAVs, but also the production of electronic warfare.
“We are increasingly stimulating the activation of domestic production of this equipment. Now the maximum effort and possible financial resources are being made for this,” said Gavrilyuk.
Let’s recall that in Ukraine three state defense factories have already started production of FPV drones.
Earlier it was reported that the production of UAVs in Ukraine increased a hundred times a year. At the state level, the procedure for the production of unmanned aerial vehicles has been simplified.
