Ukrainian Ambassador to Turkey Vasily Bodnar believes that Turkey’s statements indicate unwillingness to cooperation with Russia on the production of Bayraktars.

He spoke about this in an interviewRadio NV”.

“Initially, there was Haluk Bayraktar’s statement to CNN that they would never supply any Bayraktars to Russia. Secondly, President Erdogan said that Putin offered him such cooperation, but there were no promises or obligations. Erdogan’s speaker, Ibrahim Kalin, clarified that it was like a half-joking reproach from Putin, to which Erdogan simply smiled. Later, there were clarifications from the chairman of the State Agency for Defense Industry that no work was being done on the equipment for the production of Bayraktars or other aircraft between Russia and Turkey, “- the ambassador said.

He added that this issue contains “a certain emotional element”, but for Ukraine it is important “that Turkey be a reliable partner in the implementation of those projects and areas of cooperation that are strategically important for us.”

“And it remains so to this day,” Bodnar assured.

In July, President Erdogan allegedly announced at a meeting of the central executive committee of his Justice and Development Party that Russia and the United Arab Emirates became interested in the production of Turkish Bayraktar drones.
