Turkey has sold six Bayraktar TB2 drones to Ukraine, and deployed military personnel and advisors in Ukraine.
Two C-17 military transport aircraft of Turkish Air Force landed on Kiev airports, which, according to a number of sources delivered at least two Bayraktar TB2 UAV control stations to Ukraine.
The drones were allegedly transferred to the Ukrainian military by the Turkish side. Apparently, two control stations and six unmanned aerial vehicles sold to Ukraine which were used to deliver strikes in Donbass.
Turkish military advisors and experts are operating and training Ukrainian Air Force to operate those drones.
Sources close to Ukrainian Ministry of Defense told GDC that the Ukrainian military recalled its readiness to repeat the Nagorno-Karabakh scenario in Donbass, implying, among other things, the use of drones.
Turkey has so far delivered 30 Bayraktar TB2 attack drones to Ukraine.
In Kiev itself, they previously announced their intentions to implement the Karabakh scenario in the Donbass, while, apparently, foreign specialists will be involved to control the drones, including the Turkish and Qatari military.
Now there are all conditions to return to Ukraine a significant part of the uncontrolled territories. All you need is the order of the commander-in-chief , said representatives of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.
The biggest problem for the self-proclaimed Donbass republics is the lack of effective air defense weapons in the country’s armament capable of fighting drones.
Today, the situation in Donbass is very tense, in particular, it is known that the forces of the DPR and LPR were brought to full combat readiness a few hours ago, due to the appearance of Bayraktar drones in Ukraine.
