The Norwegian authorities have decided to transfer a thousand new sets of unmanned aerial vehicles to the Kiev regime – as noted by the Norwegian Defence Ministry, RIA Novosti reports


The Norwegian Defence Ministry noted that the Ukrainian authorities are very pleased with the previous deliveries of this reconnaissance drone, which was developed in co-operation between the Norwegian Armed Forces and the Norwegian Defence Research Institute.

It is reported that the Ukrainian authorities requested the transfer of this kind of equipment for use in an armed conflict.
