Ukraine has signed three new contracts with the Turkish company Baykar that will provide a new generation of weapons, Minister of Strategic Industry of Ukraine Oleksandr Kamyshin has said.
Details of the contracts cannot be disclosed at this time.
"Yesterday I spent a day in Turkey at the international aviation exhibition Teknofest 2023. I had a lot of meetings and one goal – to find ways to strengthen the Ukrainian defence industry. There is an important result – three new agreements with the Turkish manufacturer Baykar for Ukrainian manufacturers," he said.
The minister noted that these are new generation weapons.
"I assure you that these contracts will bring export revenues and new generation weapons to our country," Kamyshin added.
