“We have revolutionized the bureaucracy regarding drones. For companies producing drones, we have reduced taxes and eliminated duties on components,” Fedorov said.
He noted that the state was deprived of its monopoly on weapons production and created “the best conditions in the world for entrepreneurs.”
