On March 31, President of the Kyrgyz Republic Sadyr Japarov attended the Kalkan-2022 tactical training exercises that took place at the Edelweiss training centre of the Ministry of Defence in Balykchy town (Issyk-Kul Region), the press office of the President of Kyrgyzstan reports.

Bayraktar TB2 UAVs, which are in service with the Border Service of the State Committee for National Security, were engaged in tasks of the tactical training exercises for the first time in the history of the Republic.

During the exercises, the Kyrgyz security troops achieved coherence in action to destroy a mock enemy who had crossed illegally the state border.

In 2021, Kyrgyzstan purchased several Bayraktar armed unmanned aerial vehicles from Turkey.

Turkey sells its UAVs only to five countries of the world, including Kyrgyzstan.

Chairman of the State Committee for National Security Kamchybek Tashiev reported on the amount spent by the Kyrgyz authorities on 40 armoured Toyota pick-up trucks in Dubai; 300 million soms were allocated from the budget for this purpose.
