    Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Yuri Borisov said that Russia had reached the level of top world armies in drone manufacturing.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia has almost caught up on its foreign rivals in respect to manufacturing military unmanned aerial vehicles, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Yuri Borisov said Wednesday.

    "Just a few years ago, we were criticized for lagging seriously behind in this area. As of today, I think we have almost caught up," Borisov told Rossiya 24 broadcaster in an interview on the sidelines of the Army-2016 international military forum.

    He added that Russia had reached the level of top world armies in drone manufacturing.

    The Russian Defense Ministry's Army-2016 forum is taking place on September 6-11 in Kubinka, a western suburb of Moscow. The forum brings together representatives from the Russian defense industry, research institutes, universities, as well as foreign companies.
