Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov announced on Tuesday that if a factory for the Turkish “Bayraktar” parades appears in Ukraine, it will be subject to destruction by the Russian army as part of the task of disarming the western neighbor.
He also said that “the fact that that factory was established immediately places it under the demilitarization clause, because it will only prolong the suffering of the Ukrainians, and will not help to avoid what is considered a target of the special military operation there,” according to what Russia Today reported.
Peskov said earlier that Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan did not discuss issues related to Turkish drones during their meeting in Sochi, August 5.
The Ukrainian ambassador to Ankara, Vasily Bodnar, had earlier announced the plans of the Turkish “Baykar” company to start production lines of “Bayraktar” attack drones in Ukraine.
He also said that Bayraktar has already set up a company in Ukraine, and that the plant, which was rumored to be under construction before the start of the Russian military operation in late February, is still under development.
According to the ambassador, the Turkish company has already purchased a plot of land in Ukraine and developed the station project.
It is noteworthy that the Turkish company, Bayraktar, is currently producing attack drones in Ukraine.
