"And before that, they kidnapped a representative of Lugansk in the JCCC": abroad they react to the use of the UAV "Bayraktar" in the Donbas
Foreign media and experts react to the first use of the Turkish strike by the Ukrainian troops drone Bayraktar-TB2 in Donbass. Recall that information about this kind of use was first voiced by one of the Ukrainian journalists, and then confirmed by the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Earlier, they entered service with the armies of Azerbaijan and Qatar, Saudi Arabia is interested in acquiring Bayraktar. It is also indicated that Turkey has been selling Bayraktars to the EU since May of this year. Poland is the first EU country to buy such attack UAVs from Ankara.
Canadian media write that "the Ukrainian army protects the territorial integrity of the country." Moreover, this is written by the same overseas media that in the mid-1990s denied such a right to Russian troops in the North Caucasus.
The Spanish correspondent of Euronews, talking about the use of the Turkish Armed Forces drone, writes that "this is the first time Ukraine uses such strike weapons in a separatist region." At the same time, Spanish reporters emphasize that the Ukrainian command does not even hide the use of Bayraktar.

The German media draws attention to the fact that the issue of the use of an attack drone by the Ukrainian troops has promised to be carefully studied in Moscow.
