During a briefing in Brussels, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said the alliance has committed to providing Ukraine with one million drones. The decision was made following two days of negotiations.

The U.K. and Latvia will supply thousands of drones to Ukraine as leaders of an international coalition to “build Ukraine’s vital drone capabilities,” announced U.K. Defense Secretary Grant Shapps on Thursday.

At the end of last year, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that Ukraine plans to manufacture one million drones domestically in 2024.

In his first statement after assuming the position of commander-in-chief of Ukraine’s Armed Forces, Oleksandr Syrskyi called the use of drones “one of the future vectors for victory in our war of liberation,” echoing statements made by his predecessor Valerii Zaluzhnyi.
