France to give Ukraine the latest drones: first details

Military assistance to Ukraine from France

Ukraine expects to receive the latest drones from France in the coming weeks. These kamikaze drones are currently in an experimental phase.

French Defense Minister Sébastien Lecorneau said this in an interview with Journal du Dimanche. Ukraine will be one of the first countries to receive these drones.

"In the coming weeks, Ukraine will be one of the first countries to receive these drones. This also presents an opportunity for combat testing of this new generation of equipment," Lecornu said.

The minister did not disclose the specific technical characteristics of these drones, but indicated that the project was launched almost immediately after his appointment in May 2022 and is currently in the experimental stage.

He also noted that since the start of the full-scale aggression, France has trained 10,000 Ukrainian soldiers. In addition, another 7,000 to 9,000 soldiers will be trained in 2024.

Earlier it was reported that France would provide Ukraine with a new military aid package. It includes, in particular, artillery shells, CAESAR self-propelled artillery systems and air defense enhancements.

As OBOZ.UA reported, on February 16, Zelenskyy visited Germany and France. As a result of the visits, bilateral agreements were signed on security guarantees for Ukraine, which will be in effect until Ukraine joins NATO.
