“Money is not a priority for us. Money and material resources have never been the goal in our business. Friendship and cooperation with Ukraine has been going on for many years. Therefore, no matter how much money they offer, frankly speaking, there is no question that we would sell drones to Moscow in this situation. We support Ukraine during this period because we share a very close bond, and now Ukraine is facing a very unjust, aggressive and unjustified attack. “No one will overshadow our cooperation with Ukraine, regardless of the amount offered, our position on this matter is very clear,” assured H. Bayraktar.
President of Russia Vladimir Putin expressed a desire to cooperate with the Bayraktar drone manufacturer, the Turkish publication CNN reported at the end of July. It is the president of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan said at the Justice and Development Party convention.
RT Erdogan in his speech first asked his colleagues to convey to the voters that Turkey played a huge role in the creation of the “grain corridor”, and then talked about weapons.
In particular, he said that Putin is interested in the deal and even the construction of the Bayraktar drone factory (they are manufactured by the Turkish company Baykar).
RT Erdogan did not provide other details.
Some time ago, the Turkish company “Baykar Makina”, which manufactures “Bayraktar” drones, which effectively help Ukraine in the fight against the Russian invaders, declared that it would never supply its products to Russia. The CEO of the company, H. Bayraktaras, spoke about this on CNN.
“We have not supplied them to Russia and we will never do so. We support Ukraine, we support its sovereignty and struggle for independence,” he said.
At the end of June, Baykar Makina promised to deliver three of its Bayraktar TB2 drones to Ukraine for free.
