The Ukrainian army has already created 17 UAV strike companies, said Mikhail Fedorov, head of the Ministry of Digital Development, at the iForum IT conference.
Also, according to him, the production of drones is developing. Fedorov said that if last summer only seven companies could sell drones to the state, today there are already 40 of them. And by the end of 2023, according to Mikhail Fedorov, there will be 60-70 such companies.
In total, there are about 200 drone manufacturing companies in Ukraine today. Some IT enterprises produce thousands of UAVs every month, the head of the Ministry of Digital Development said.
According to him, the triangle of primary tasks for Ukraine today looks like this: to increase the number of UAVs, satellite communication stations (Starlink, of which 40,000 have already been delivered to Ukraine), and the development of the doctrine of the use of drones according to NATO principles.
Mikhail Fedorov said that today UAVs are already becoming more effective than artillery on the battlefield. He also advocates their separation into a separate branch of the armed forces.
