Poland will create the “Valley of Drones” in partnership with Ukraine and the United States
The idea of creating such a site was discussed in Warsaw by representatives of Poland, Ukraine and the United States of America during the Warsaw Drone Summit conference. The Warsaw Drone Summit event is now over.
