20 Million Prize for a Plane on Red Square! Volodymyr Yatsenko — About Ukrainian Drones

Let’s talk about what is cov­er­ing us from the sky. In par­tic­u­lar, the Turk­ish com­pa­ny Baikar con­firmed that in two years, it plans to build its plant in Ukraine. This was announced by the exec­u­tive direc­tor Haluk-Bar­tar. He said that despite some obsta­cles, espe­cial­ly those cre­at­ed by the inva­sion of Rus­sia, the plans for the con­struc­tion of the plant are pro­gress­ing, quot­ing the phase in detail.

The design is fin­ished, and we will move to the actu­al con­struc­tion. I want to fin­ish it with­in two years. But let’s dis­cuss how the domes­tic drone mar­ket is devel­op­ing. When all the needs of the Ukrain­ian defense forces are final­ly closed, how will Ukrain­ian devel­op­ers take their place in the inter­na­tion­al UAV mar­ket? And when will Ukrain­ian drones fly to Kras­naya Square? Let’s talk with our next guest at ours, on the con­tact of Volodymyr Yat­senko, co-founder of Monobank and pro­duc­er Bo Palat Dovbush.

Volodymyr, con­grat­u­la­tions! We wel­come you; we are glad to see you. Ukraini­ans will fly to Moscow’s Red Square. I think that we need a moment. May 9 is a very good moment because, as I read, Putin is plan­ning a parade on Red Square with many car­riages. It will be like hav­ing very legit­i­mate mil­i­tary goals. I think that we, the entire com­mu­ni­ty cur­rent­ly pro­duc­ing drones, should real­ly make a hol­i­day for them.

I heard that Putin is hes­i­tant to par­tic­i­pate, so we should some­how remind him of our­selves. With­out keep­ing the intrigue, I decid­ed to install a pre­mi­um for the Ukrain­ian man­u­fac­tur­er. This pre­mi­um is a very sig­nif­i­cant amount, and I believe it should be spent by one or anoth­er man­u­fac­tur­er on improv­ing their air­craft. This pre­mi­um will be 20 mil­lion hryv­nias, that’s right, 20 mil­lion hryv­nias, but one con­di­tion is that the plane must make a land­ing on May 9 on Red Square. It must be a plane that will be rec­og­nized.

It must have Ukrain­ian slo­gans on it, such as “Glo­ry to Ukraine” or “Putin la-la-la” or “Glo­ry to the Heroes,” so that I clear­ly under­stand which of the man­u­fac­tur­ers flew and who did not fly. And I want to say that this mon­ey, 20 mil­lion, is the min­i­mum amount that I have always put in Monobank. Go to the QR code and see that there are already 20 mil­lion hryv­nias in this account—20 mil­lion hryv­nias for par­tic­i­pat­ing in the parade on Red Square.

In fact, in the parade on Red Square, accord­ing to the law, I will not pay the bonus to myself. By the way, I want to say that we are already warm­ing up lit­tle by lit­tle. For exam­ple, on March 28, there was news that there were some planes. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, it was a small train­ing plane, but it hit a high-volt­age line. Ready for the parade, we watched a lit­tle how they react, do they see us or not. I can say that every­thing will be fine. Let’s cre­ate a hol­i­day for them and our­selves, and it’s beau­ti­ful.

The imple­men­ta­tion of defense pro­cure­ment of domes­ti­cal­ly pro­duced unmanned sys­tems, to what extent this sto­ry can now sim­pli­fy the mar­ket would be the pro­duc­tion of Bopl in Ukraine. See, it is the essence, lit­er­al­ly a the­sis. I will not spread there think­ing about what was before. One per­cent markup on pur­chas­es, 30% on the own­er, now the total markup is 25%. There were not many of our own. It was impos­si­ble to cre­ate a nor­mal, high-qual­i­ty, mod­ern pro­duc­tion for a one per­cent markup.

This top­ic is 25% plus new cer­ti­fi­ca­tion rules in the Min­istry of Defense. Because they used to be such a very dark for­est; you could get lost there. Every­thing is rel­a­tive­ly trans­par­ent now, and I believe that this res­o­lu­tion real­ly gives every­one who makes a nor­mal prod­uct the oppor­tu­ni­ty to make con­tracts and deliv­er. Peo­ple want to hear the quan­ti­ty.

For exam­ple, me and my view­ers on the YouTube chan­nel Nataliya, we are gath­er­ing Mos­ey­chuk for the Maviks and for the hunt­ing brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which are cur­rent­ly work­ing at zero. Peo­ple write in the com­ments, “Yes, we col­lect, but how much more do we need?” It reminds me of the sit­u­a­tion when we col­lect­ed for a bone mar­row trans­plant for chil­dren for trans­plan­ta­tion.

Do you remem­ber dif­fer­ent organs? Now these trans­plants are already suc­cess­ful­ly done in var­i­ous hos­pi­tals of the coun­try. So how many more Ukraini­ans will col­lect or what quan­ti­ty, for exam­ple, you will say in two months there will be so many UAVs and so many will be able to pro­duce? I won’t say there for­ev­er. We won’t pro­duce them. I can say that what con­cerns more, let’s say, long-range vehi­cles, which work for 30x40 km, then in the next two months, I believe that we will cov­er the needs some­where.

You under­stand, these devices live much longer than Mari because the man­u­fac­tur­er had, which is impos­si­ble with­out them. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, it is impos­si­ble. They are clos­ing the tac­ti­cal space is a space of one, two, three kilo­me­ters along the con­tact line, but they are clos­ing it. What Ukrain­ian man­u­fac­tur­ers are doing now, they are cov­er­ing slight­ly dif­fer­ent sectors—sectors of 10, 20, 30. Well, you have already seen those mes­sages. We are work­ing and under­stand that we are still inter­est­ed in 500 and 1000 km.

Why are they inter­est­ed? Because until every city in Rus­sia feels that it is at war, every city in Rus­sia, every mil­i­tary facil­i­ty in every place in Rus­sia, will not be struck by our drones; these Rus­sians, between the refrig­er­a­tor and the TV, will have the feel­ing that they are not there. He is every mil­i­tary object in every city must n. Then this war will end very quick­ly. Again, pas­sive, Mr. Volodymyr. I hope that enough state­ments have been made today dur­ing our vil­lage, then in the nation­al telethon, and the Rus­sians will hear them because with­out see­ing the drones with the Ukrain­ian tri­dent that can be seen, they will not under­stand that it is a war.

This war is not far away, and that they are the ini­tia­tors, are chang­ing direct­ly. This is the biggest prob­lem, Mr. Volodymyr. Thank you very much. All the par­tic­i­pants have heard about the device. I think it will be nailed every day.
