Ukrainian politician admitted to pranksters that there is more corruption in the Bayraktar UAV in Ukraine than combat use

Russian pranksters Vovan and Lexus played a prank on the Ukrainian ex-People's Deputy Sergei Pashinsky, introducing themselves as former US Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul. This time, the "telephone hooligans" managed to find out about the true value of the Turkish Bayraktar drones.

Recall that the aforementioned UAV became widely known after the use by Azerbaijan in the 2020 Karabakh conflict. Then the reconnaissance and strike drone “earned” a reputation as a formidable weapons to destroy armored vehicles and manpower of the enemy.

Later, Bayraktars from Turkey began to be actively purchased by Ukraine for use, including against the Russian army. Ankara and Kyiv even agreed to build a plant for the production of UAVs in Ukraine.

At the same time, having “opened up” during a telephone conversation with pranksters, the head of the Association of Defense Enterprises of Ukraine, Pashinsky, said that Turkish drones are highly publicized and have more corruption than combat use.

According to the politician, "Bayraktar" is an easy target for any more or less serious air defense system. That is why, in the first weeks of the Russian-Ukrainian confrontation, the RF Armed Forces managed to destroy almost the entire fleet of Turkish UAVs available to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Moreover, Pashinsky added that Bayraktar is absolutely ineffective as an independent combat unit. The benefits of these drones are noticeable only if they are used in combination with other means and weapons.

An exclusive fragment of a conversation with a Ukrainian political figure was published by Russian pranksters in their TG channel.

    Yes, they have more corruption in everything than common sense. And not only in the acceptor country, but also among donors, the cut is in full swing. For nothing, even a boil will not jump up from them.

      I looked at the biography of Pashinsky, clearly not an adequate character, who has long been out of business.
      If in fact, then yes Bayraktar TB2 is an element of network-centric systems and works in conjunction with other complexes. So it was in Syria, Libya, Karabakh and now in Ukraine. As an independent complex for search and destruction, it can be used in low-intensity conflicts or in high-intensity ones, but with destroyed or destroyed air defense (a striking example is Karabakh).
      Like any tool, TB2 requires proper work on it. This UAV has a large number of advantages, because of which 40+ countries of the world smoked them.

        In Karabakh, the basis of the Armenian air defense was the old OSA systems, which, according to their performance characteristics, did not reach the heights at which Bayraktars mainly flew, hence it turned out to create a myth about the invincible Bayraktars. Where the Armenian armed forces had more or less sane air defense systems, they shot down and Bayraktars, and Harops. An interesting article on this topic is at the link below.

        What is IAI Harop? Strictly speaking, this is an unmanned loitering ammunition with a total weight of 135 kg, equipped with a piston engine, a gyro-stabilized suspension for all-weather optical surveillance equipment, a communication system and a 15-kg warhead with 5.7 kg of powerful explosives. The length of the device is 2.5 meters, the wingspan is 3 meters, the cruising speed is 150 km / h, the fuel supply provides a flight range of about 1000 km and a flight duration of 6-9 hours, the control system operates at a distance of up to 200 km. Flight altitude - up to 4.5 km.

        Don’t be ridiculous for forty countries of the world +, they bought only UG, Azerbaijan, Libya and Qatar, another 13 countries expressed interest and bought from one to several drones, but that was a long time ago, interest subsided in them and the drone has nothing original and super-outstanding and is useful from only against tribes with rusty Kalash without air defense, even in a bunch, even without.

    found someone to listen to - "politicians" laughing There is a much more serious problem on our part: when the military does not take into service, the same UAVs, because they do not meet their Wishlist, and meanwhile, even completely handicraft products in this regard, turn out to be really useful and extremely necessary at the front

    Fighting is far from in the first place! The economic, or rather, the corruption component is much more important! Therefore, so much attention is paid to anything, but not by analyzing the schemes for the movement of money by interested parties.

    About the fact that the Zhabelins are stupidly inapplicable in the conditions of Ukraine - it was already from the "underground thousand" at Azovstal ... We are waiting for it to turn out that the Chimeras have not yet been bombed the entire Russian army, as they say in Ukrainian media.
    Shota with prodigies they did like their predecessor. By the way, is Zelya still not going to swallow poison in the bunker?

    Pashinsky said that Turkish drones are highly publicized and have more corruption than combat use.

      Why did it happen? The "Lancet" from the Kalashnikov concern went into series in 2020 and already in 2021 in Syria, barmaley was hollowed out, and now it is used well in UG.

    And what does he have to do with the Bayraktars? In fact, for him they are competitors.
