The Foreign Ministry responded to the “concern” of Germany and France over Bayraktar

Ukraine does not agree with the assessment of its Western partners, Kuleba said.

France and Germany, which are mediators in the Normandy format, earlier expressed their “concern” over the use of the Bayraktar drone by Ukraine in the Donbas. Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba replied to “eternally concerned” partners, reports with reference to.

The head of Ukrainian diplomacy noted that even in their “concern”, the partners noted that it was Russia that provoked the aggravation, while Ukraine only responded to the actions of the aggressor.

Kuleba's answer

The foreign minister stressed that France and Germany are burdened with the status of a mediator in the Normandy format, and therefore in the public sphere are striving for a “more balanced position.”

However, the Minister of Foreign Affairs notes that in a specific situation their position is not satisfactory to Ukraine. He is convinced that in such a situation it is necessary to tell the truth even to the closest partners.

We told them publicly that we did not agree with such assessments. We passed it on through diplomatic channels,
– said Dmitry Kuleba.

At the same time, he assured that now, when Ukraine is trying to “drag” Russia into the diplomatic process, it has full support and mutual understanding with France and Germany on fundamental issues.

Using Bayraktar in Donbass

  • Attack drones Bayraktar TB2, manufactured in Turkey, have been in service with the Ukrainian army since 2019, and since the beginning of 2021 have taken up combat duty.
  • However, they were first applied only at the end of October 2021. This was a forced measure due to the almost round-the-clock shelling of Granitnoye by militants.
  • With the help of a drone, they destroyed the enemy's artillery. After that, a real hysteria began in the Kremlin, and propagandists began to shout about “Ukraine's violation of the Minsk agreements.”
  • The mediators in the Normandy format – Germany and France – expressed their position. They said they were “deeply concerned about the aggravation of the situation in Donbass.”
