Reuters writes about it.

The authors of the best ideas on combating drones received a prize fund of $3 million. They suggested how to eliminate Shahed with other drones and electronic warfare.

At the meeting, the Deputy Prime Minister for Reconstruction Oleksandr Kubrakov informed that Ukraine is preparing for winter in order to prevent the Russians from destroying the energy system.
