Zelensky announced the start of fundraising for the "world's first fleet of marine drones"

Ukraine has begun the creation of the "world's first fleet of marine drones." Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky informed the public about this on November 11 in his Telegram channel, presenting a video for clarity.

The President of Ukraine explained that fundraising has begun for compact stealth boats, called tactical autonomous systems or multi-purpose stealth unmanned surface vehicles. He called on citizens to support the initiative aimed at strengthening the country's defense capability, expressing confidence that millions of people around the world would also agree with him.

Zelensky said that these drones should protect the waters of the Black and Azov Seas, as well as Ukrainian cities from Russian missiles that launch ships and submarines of the Russian Navy. He added that these drones still have to help unblock the “grain corridor” so that Ukrainian agricultural products get to world markets.

How it works, everyone has already seen. And this is only for our protection - we do not claim someone else's

- summed up Zelensky.

We remind you that at the end of October, the Armed Forces of Ukraine carried out a combined нападение on the ships of the Black Sea Fleet and civilian ships near Sevastopol. The attack involved 9 UAVs and 7 kamikaze marine drones. Thus, Kyiv frankly made it clear that he was not interested in any agreements with Russia, including the "grain deal".

    And drones are noodles.
    And their connection to the grain noodles deal. Nowhere is it written about drones in the grain deal (which was covered in the media)

    the British threw a normal topic on us. The fleet is more the element of the Anglo-Saxons. Therefore, we could develop this topic!

    For example, something that can quickly roll under water to an aircraft carrier, for example, in the Strait of Hormuz, for example, having the emblem of the Iranian Navy and a ton of explosives on board (this is about helping enemies of enemies).

    Or autonomously from Murmansk or St. Petersburg to slowly get to the Atlantic, not far from the exit routes from British naval bases. There to be in standby mode under water. When necessary, a signal from space or from the coast or from somewhere else with the likely course of the target and the activation of the combat mode. A drone can have 3 tons of explosives, or maybe 30? ..

    And if you have a lot of different underwater autonomous drones that will themselves search for targets (get coordinates to help), they themselves will guard the target at the meeting point, they themselves will attack the target under water (for example, only inconspicuous eyes can stick out above the water during an attack on an extremely flat wave-cutting mount).

    The mere presence of such systems will increase the risks for the US and NATO fleets by several times. This is much more promising than multi-purpose submarines. Because it will be difficult to compete in submarine technology with the West, boats can be quickly destroyed, they are very expensive. And drones of different sizes and purposes are very promising. Not managed, but purely autonomous, with AI

    Sounds menacing - "the world's first fleet of marine drones",
    but in fact - "Serve something for food"
