Ukraine will spend at least 20 billion hryvnia (more than $541 million) on the purchase of drones. According to RBC, this was stated by President Vladimir Zelensky.

On March 24, the Ukrainian government adopted a resolution that will speed up the production, purchase and supply of domestic drones to the army.

Last summer, Ukrainian Ambassador to Turkey Vasily Bodnar announced the construction of a Bayraktar plant for the production of drones in Ukraine. The Turkish company Baykar has already registered a company in the country and bought the land, he said. Baykar promised to build the enterprise in two years. The construction of a plant for the production of Turkish Bayraktar TB2 drones in Ukraine “falls under the theme of demilitarization”, which “will only prolong the suffering of Ukrainians”, but will not prevent Russia from achieving the goals of the military operation, said Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov.
