Turkey does not consider putin's proposal for joint production of Bayraktars

Turkey is currently not considering joint production of Bayraktar TB2 drones or other drones with the russian federation.

It was stated by the president of the Turkish Defense Industry Directorate, Ismail Demir, Hurriyet Ankara reports.

"I can't say that it is possible. There is nothing that would get on our agenda and start working," said Demir.

The President of the Turkish Defense Industry Directorate added that international cooperation issues are resolved within the state policy framework.

"The process is being shaped within the framework of the policy of the Republic of Turkey. We are working on the technical side of the issue," said Demir.

Fundraising for Bayraktars for the Armed Forces

As reported by Rubryka, this has already been done in the case of funds raised for Bayraktar in Lithuania.

The fundraiser was closed in three days. After that, Turkish manufacturing company said they were touched by the solidarity of the Lithuanians.

It was why Turkey decided to donate a drone, and the collected funds could be directed to other needs of Ukraine.

Inspired by the example of Tapinas, as Rubryka reported, in Ukraine, the Serhiy Prytula Foundation organized a fundraiser for three Bayraktars, which was closed in three days.

At the same time, they collected funds for almost four drones. The Baykar company has announced that this time, it will hand over three drones free of charge.

The Serhiy Prytula Charitable Fund called this fundraising campaign "the largest for Ukraine."

And before that, the ambassador of Ukraine to Turkey, Vasyl Bodnar, noted that Turkey was "delighted" by the desire of Ukrainians to purchase drones on their own.

Canada also organized a fundraiser for the Bayraktar attack drone for the Ukrainian army. Volunteers want to hand over the purchased drone by Independence Day — August 24.
