Ukraine ramps up numbers of drones as Zelenskyy emphasizes importance


In his nightly video address, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy revealed that Kyiv is "significantly" increasing its production of drones.


As part of his address, Zelenskyy emphasized the importance of drones in defending Ukraine amid Russia's invasion.


"Drones are the 'eyes' and protection on the front line... Drones are a guarantee that people will not have to pay with their lives when drones can be used," said the Ukrainian leader.


In recent weeks, Kyiv has had several successful drone attacks as part of its counteroffensive efforts to reclaim territory.
