The Russian Embassy placed a post on Weibo of the quotes from a new book by former Russian Military Chief of Staff General Yuri Baluyevsky. The Russian general praised Dajiang’s (DJI’s) drones and said that they have brought a real revolution to the usage of traditional artillery, completely solving the issues of detecting the target, directing the aim, and correcting fire. Their accuracy and efficiency are comparable to those of precision-guided missiles.
The general said DJI’s “Mavic quadcopter has become a true symbol of modern warfare.”
The posting was based on the Russian media Sputnik.
DJI immediately responded that its products are for civilian usage. Later, the Russian Embassy removed this posting.
