More than 95% of drones out of a million will be manufactured by Ukrainian companies, - Fedorov

Fedorov talks about drone production in Ukraine

Private businesses in Ukraine will produce more than 95% of the planned 1 million d rones this year. The drone market has emerged in our country thanks to simplified procedures for manufacturers.

This was stated by Mykhailo Fedorov, Vice Prime Minister for Innovation, Education, Science and Technology Development, Minister of Digital Transformation, during the Made in Ukraine forum, Ukrinform reported. He emphasized that the plan to manufacture UAVs, which was previously announced by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, will be implemented.

"First and foremost, it is thanks to Ukrainian drone manufacturers. Almost 95% of these drones, or even more, will be assembled by them. Last year, we simplified the procedure for drone manufacturers," the official said.

He added that the same will be true for manufacturers of ground robotic platforms and electronic warfare equipment.

Thanks to deregulation, a drone market has emerged in the country and their production has increased 120 times by the end of 2023. In particular, reusable copters were produced 30 times more, reconnaissance drones like Mavic 70 times more, and FPV drones 200 times more.

"Last year, the state contracted more than 300 thousand units of various drones. While in 2022 the state purchased only 7 types of drones, by the end of last year 67 units had already been put into operation," Fedorov said.

As reported by OBOZ.UA:

- The Wall Street Journal reported that Ukraine hopes to produce up to 1 million FPV drones in 2024 for the needs of the Defense Forces. The relatively inexpensive attack drones are meant to compensate for the lack of expensive artillery shells and missiles.

- NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has announced that a group of NATO countries will provide the Ukrainian Armed Forces with one million unmanned aerial vehicles. The transfer will be made as part of military assistance.
