Turkish drones could decide who wins a Ukraine war

Russia says it recently shot down 40 Turkish Bayraktar drones – although they have turned up only one as evidence – in Syria, while Francis Fukuyama, a leading American political scientist at Stanford, says the transfer of Turkish Bayraktar TB2 drones to Ukraine could be a “game-changer.”   

Which is it?

The Russians are placing their bets based on the Pantsir short-range and mobile air defense system that has seen action in Syria and Libya. The Turks and Fukuyama base their arguments on Bayraktar’s success in Nagorno-Karabakh, Libya and Syria – and more recently in the Ethiopian Tigray war.
