At the beginning of the next year, Ukraine will receive new models of combat drones, including those capable of shooting down other drones in the air.

The Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine, Mykhailo Fedorov, said this in an interview with The Associated Press.

“I can say already that the situation regarding drones will change drastically in February or March,” he said.

According to Fedorov, Ukraine has bought some 1,400 drones, mostly for reconnaissance. ” “And the next stage, now that we are more or less equipped with reconnaissance drones, is strike drones. These are both exploding drones and drones that fly up to three to 10 kilometers and hit targets,” the minister said.

Fedorov predicted “more missions with strike drones” in the future, but would not elaborate. “We are talking there about drones, UAVs, UAVs that we are developing in Ukraine. Well, anyway, it will be the next step in the development of technologies,” he said.
