Newest branch of Armed Forces of Ukraine - Unmanned Systems Forces - presented in Kyiv

Ukraine has become the first country to create the newest branch of the military - the Unmanned Systems Forces, First Deputy Defense Minister Ivan Havryliuk said during an official presentation.

According to Ukrinform, this was reported by the Ministry of Defense.

"We have a good prospect of winning the war against Russia. We can achieve this victory thanks to your intelligence, your perseverance, and thanks to what you are doing to protect the lives and health of our servicemen by increasingly involving robots and unmanned systems in combat missions in the air, on the ground, and at sea,” Havryliuk emphasized.

The First Deputy Minister of Defense added that the new type of troops will allow to strike the enemy to the fullest possible depth: from Ukrainian battle lines to the Urals.

According to him, Ukraine is the only country in the world that is already completing the manning of this kind of troops.

At the same time, Vadym Sukharevskyi, commander of the Unmanned Systems Forces, noted that Ukraine is studying the experience of modern warfare and immediately implementing changes: "We have shown the whole world today that Ukraine has moved away from a conservative approach. Today we have set a precedent. Thus, we are ready to dictate the rules of this war for further success."

The swallow, created by a neural network, has become the symbol of the new kind of troops.

According to the command, the swallow is one of the most revered symbols in Ukrainian culture, signifying the news of victory.

The Unmanned Systems Forces were created on May 7. The Cabinet of Ministers supported the draft presidential decree on the creation of this type of troops.

As reported by Ukrinform, on February 6, President Volodymyr Zelensky signed a decree providing for the creation of the Unmanned Systems Forces as a separate branch of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

On June 10, Colonel Vadym Sukharevskyi was appointed commander of the Unmanned Systems Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
