Israel considers joint production of military drones with Ukraine

It is possible that Israel and Ukraine will begin producing remotely piloted aircraft for military use, said  the Israeli Ambassador to Ukraine, Joel Lion, as quoted by RBC-Ukraine.

“We are in a state of war with another country. Therefore, it has been very hard for us to hold a shield with one hand and build our country with the other. This is know-how that we would like to share with Ukraine. And maybe there are other things apart from drones that we could work on with Ukraine,” Lion said in response to a question posed at the international Jewish conference about the prospects of cooperation between Ukraine and Israel in the field of military production.

“In war, not only is military equipment important, but also the spirit of the people. So that when people return from serving in the military, they can readapt back into society. We are working to create a rehabilitation hospital in Dnipro to help rehabilitate soldiers”, Lion added.

Previously, Ukraine’s Deputy Minister of Finance Serhiy Verlanov said that Kyiv intends to increase trade with Israel by 20 percent in the next 3-5 years.
