All obstacles to the production of Turkish armed drones Bayraktar TB2 in Ukraine have been removed, according to Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba.

He said this at a briefing following his talks with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu in Lviv on October 7, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“As for the construction of Bayraktar drones in Ukraine, I believe that this project has already been implemented in Ukraine, because it enjoys the political patronage of both presidents. There were a number of obstacles to its implementation, but they have all been removed,” he said.

Kuleba noted that a plot of land for a drone construction plant has already been allotted.

“That’s why politicians have done their job, and now businesses should launch production,” he said.

Ukraine’s Defense Ministry and Turkey’s Baykar Savunma signed a memorandum of cooperation on September 29.

According to the document, Bayraktar will build a maintenance and modernization center for the company’s unmanned aerial vehicles on a plot of land, owned by the Ukrainian Defense Ministry, near Vasylkiv, Kyiv region. The center will also train personnel who will operate UAVs. A number of such centers will be built in Ukraine later.
