Ukraine already receiving from U.S. everything necessary to fight Iranian drones upon consent of Israel – ambassador

KYIV. Sept 27 (Interfax-Ukraine) – Ukraine is already receiving from the United States what it needs to fight Iranian drones upon consent of Israel, Ukrainian Ambassador to Israel Yevhen Korniychuk has said.

"In fact, the Iranian drones are copies of the American ones that were shot down by Iran in Syria. They made the most similar copy. But, of course, the Israeli industry that works in this sector is, in fact, a common enterprise with the United States. And, according to my information, it is from the United States that we are already getting what we need. Again, not without the consent of Israel," Korniychuk said on the air of the national telethon on Tuesday.

He said this when asked whether Israel can help Ukraine in the fight against Iranian drones, which are used by the Russian army against Ukraine.

The diplomat explained that, as a rule, all know-how and patented developments require permission from the country of origin or developer.

"That is, if at a common enterprise with the Americans a part is developed by Israel or it is an Israeli development that is produced in Britain or other European countries, Israel will give such permission through third countries. To date, I believe that this is the most important shift that has occurred over the past months thanks to our endless pressure on the Israeli side," Korniychuk said.
