I’ve expressed them my profound support and saluted the courage shown for almost a year now,” tweeted the Minister of Defense of Belgium Ludivine Dedonder.

Ludivine  Dedonder announced the transfer of underwater drones to Kyiv on November 26, 2022. At that time, she noted that 10 underwater drones manufactured by the Belgian company ECA Robotics Belgium should be delivered to Ukraine by the end of May 2023.
