Russia has brought to the notice of the Turkish government that the Ukrainian military is using drones manufactured in Turkey to fight the ongoing war.
Speaking at a media briefing at the weekend, a Turkish official told reporters that Turkey had told Russia that such drones were made by a Turkish drone-maker, Baykar Technologies.
Turkey said it had also explained to Russia that Ukraine completed the purchase of those devices before the war started.
CNN reports that Ukrainian officials have been touting Baykar’s Bayraktar TB2 drones as one of the most effective weapons in their arsenal.
Chief technology officer of Baytar, Selcuk Bayraktar, who is also the son-in-law of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, told CNN that the drone was “doing what it was designed to do and upgraded to do.”
