Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu called on Ukraine not to associate the Bayraktar drones supplied to it with his country.
“In our fight against terrorism, we have come across different weapons produced in different countries, but we have never been accused of this. Ukraine should also stop using the name of our country, ”he said in an interview for the channel“ Russia 1 ”.
He stressed that after the purchase, the weapons cease to be “Turkish, Russian or Ukrainian.”
“Although it was produced in Turkey, it now belongs to Ukraine. There is nothing to blame Turkey for in this situation, ”the minister stressed.
We will remind, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported earlier that the military first used the Bayraktar strike drone in Donbass, it destroyed the enemy’s howitzer with a bomb. At the same time, flights of military aircraft and UAVs along the entire line of contact are prohibited by the Minsk agreements.
After that, the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov said that the supply of Turkish attack drones to Ukraine could destabilize the situation on the contact line in Donbass.
