Ukraine's ambassador to Ankara, Vasyl Bodnar, said on Feb. 27 that Turkey-made Bayraktar drones were very efficient in the country's battle against invading Russian forces.
Turkey has sold Kyiv several batches of Bayraktar TB2 drones, which it had in the past deployed against Russian-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine.
Meanwhile, the Ukrainian Embassy in Ankara has released a video of an attack by the Bayraktar TB2 drones against Russian forces.
A video posted on Twitter showed a convoy of more than a dozen vehicles consumed by a fireball and a plume of smoke. The embassy tweeted two more videos taken out the window of a moving vehicle showing the charred wreckage of military vehicles.
“Never a rose without a thorn,” the embassy wrote in one of the tweets. “Russian invaders have to put up with Bayraktar TB2s.”
The embassy called the strike “divine justice” for a Russian airstrike that killed 34 Turkish soldiers in Syria on this date two years ago.
In February, Turkey and Ukraine inked several agreements, including a deal that would expand the production capabilities of Turkish drone-maker Baykar in Ukraine.
