The report points out that exports amounted to almost $ 60 million in the first three months of this year, compared to just approximately $ 2 million in the same period in 2021.

Most of the purchases reference deliveries and agreements made before the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which has so far cost a large number of civilian casualties and enormous logistical damage to Ukrainian cities.

Turkey is known to have agreed to sell in Ukraine, Turkish armed Bayraktar TB2 UAVs, and even MILGEM corvettes. Russia insisted that have already destroyed the Ukrainian Bayraktar TB2 arsenal but has yet to provide adequate proof.

The Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan who maintains an occupying army with stationed occupying troops in Cyprus even tries to play the peacemaker, mediating between Zelenskyy and Putin.
