The US Congress asks the Pentagon to expedite the delivery of drones to Ukraine

The US Congress instructed The Pentagon to speed up the delivery of large drones to Ukraine. US Congressmen asked Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin to expedite the Pentagon's consideration of the Ukrainian authorities' request for the supply of large combat unmanned aerial vehicles. It is reported by RBC-Ukraine with reference to Reuters of four large combat drones stalled in June over fears that the technically sophisticated equipment would fall into the possession of the Russian military.

A technical objection to the sale was raised by the Defense Technology Defense Administration, a group within the Department of Defense that is responsible for protecting high-value military technology from adversaries, the sources said.

The plan to sell the MQ-1C Gray Eagle drones, first revealed in March, has been approved by officials, three sources said. The letter, signed by both Republicans and Democrats, speaks of Ukraine's recent victories and adds that the use of more effective unmanned aerial systems on the battlefield will allow the Ukrainian Armed Forces to better defend the territory for which they fought so hard.
