"The drone is set to take off in Ukraine next year", - noted Fanny Tugris.
She added that the Ukrainian and French sides need to coordinate all subsequent actions on an industrial and operational level. This includes determining the location for assembling the drone and deciding which French and Ukrainian equipment to use for this UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle).
