"Negotiations on the purchase of these UAVs lasted for about two years. Over this time, representatives of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry visited Turkey and familiarized themselves with various stages of the Bayraktar TB2 tests," the portal said.
The agreement was signed during the visit by Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to Turkey on November 3-4.
The report notes that Ukraine will buy Turkish unmanned combat aerial vehicles Bayraktar TB2 produced by Baykar Makina, which are the holders of the flight endurance record.
The possibility of producing some Bayraktar TB2 unmanned combat aerial vehicles at the facilities of the Antonov State Company, part of the Ukroboronprom State Concern, is also being considered.
These combat drones can carry guided anti-tank missiles and aerial bombs.
