Russia will buy no more foreign-made drones. According to the Director of the Federal Service for Military-Technological Cooperation, Alexander Fomin, Russia has launched the production of its own drones.

Earlier, Russia bought drones in Israel to the tune of some 400 million dollars.

When commenting on the borrowing of foreign technologies, the official pointed out that the USSR was the first to invent a drone, based on the Tu-154 airliner, back in the 1960s.
