Ukraine needs unmanned aerial vehicles that can carry air-to-ground missiles, said Oleksandr Turchynov, the Secretary of the National Security and Defence Council of Ukraine.

According to him, the country needs to manufacture the drones that will be able to locate the threat on a far distance, as Ukraine needs to defend its territories, developing the unmanned combat and intelligence air vehicles of domestic production.

"We have already started serial production of the tactical UAVs that provide air reconnaissance and fire adjustment. But we still need to produce strike drones", Turchynov explained.

He added that some of the UAVs have been already tested in the field, and the best of them will be upgraded and taken to the assembly line.
