“Ukraine protects its territory and its sovereignty in accordance with the duty and oath of everyone who serves today, who defends Ukrainian statehood. We are not executing an offensive, we are just responding," the message reads.

The Head of State stressed that Ukraine uses unmanned aerial vehicles solely for defense as well.

Meanwhile, Foreign Minister of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba justified the launch of the Turkish drone Bayraktar in the Donbas conflict zone by the need for self-defense.

"We have observed the necessary communication procedures through the Joint Center for Coordination and Control and with the OSCE in order to apply the right to self-defense," the head of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry stressed.
