“They have two years of strict combat experience in this. I think we should all learn from the evolution of the use of drones in war and make decisions about future purchases based on this,” the Canadian minister emphasized.

Blair noted that Canada, like other partners, will try to provide Ukraine with a million drones. Some of these drones will be manufactured in Ukraine.

“We will work with Ukrainians in the spirit of cooperation and support their own production. However, this has real advantages for all members of the coalition, including Canada,” summed up the Canadian Minister of Defense.
