This fall, a significant increase in the production of Ukrainian drones is expected, according to the statement made by the Minister of Defense of Ukraine, Oleksii Reznikov, in his interview with Ukrinform.

He mentions that the process of simplifying drone production procedures took nearly a year.

"Last fall, we accomplished this, while everything was being created under the new rules - it wasn't quick, it took almost a year. But I believe that this fall there will be a boom in the production of various Ukrainian drones: flying, swimming, crawling, and so on, and it will continue to develop in larger volumes," stated Reznikov.
