When Ukrainian tech challenges Elon Musk

Nothing is going well between Elon Musk and Volodymyr Zelensky.

At only 17 years old, this native of kyiv has developed a prototype of an anti-personnel mine detector drone. An innovation that is anything but anecdotal when, worldwide, thousands of people die each year because of these mines.

“I’ve always been interested in science, so I decided to research ways to use robotics for mine clearance,” said the budding inventor. A determination shared by many other Ukrainian entrepreneurs. How to change the face of the conflict? Response elements.
