The enemy most often launches Iranian kamikaze drones at night along the riverbed of the Dnieper, because they are more difficult to detect by radar there. This was stated by the speaker of the Air Force Colonel Yuriy Ignat on the air & # 171; Ukrainian radio & # 171;.

When asked why the air defense did not shoot down UAVs while moving along the Dnieper, the representative of the Air Force noted that the radar drones become less visible and are pressed closer to the ground.

«Do you want to live &# 8212; snuggle lower. A radar antenna that detects a target will not see it if the target flies below the level of the antenna», — explained Ignat.

When asked if citizens could help the military, Ignat explained that the eAir defense app is unlikely to add any information at the time of the attack. More often drones fly at night, Ukrainians can only detect them by sound. However, while the warning system is working or calls are made to 102, time will pass and the drone will already be in another place (its speed is 150 km/h).

Therefore, Ignat added that this information, which is in extremely large quantities will come from everywhere, on the contrary, will interfere and even disorientate our defenders.

«Because the Defense Forces, which destroy the «Shaheds», are not only the Air Force. This includes fighter aircraft operating in areas where there is no sufficient air defense coverage. These are anti-aircraft missile systems, and armed mobile fire teams operating anti-aircraft guns and heavy machine guns. All this requires tremendous coordination. After all, this is a large unified air defense system of various types and types of all Defense Forces & # 187;, & # 8212; he stressed.

Ignat noted that the most important thing for citizens is to take care of themselves and stay in shelters.

«Because even with 100- percentage of air defense work, unfortunately, debris falls and can destroy cars, buildings and people's lives. When a missile hits the target, it does not immediately burst head-on with «Shahed», but nearby. This is how anti-aircraft weapons work. Its striking elements pierce the fuselage of a rocket or drone, the rocket loses its aerodynamic data and falls down. Its warhead is not necessarily torn apart in a collision with an anti-aircraft missile. That is, this warhead and fragments of an anti-aircraft missile fall to the ground & # 187;, & # 8212; the Air Force speaker explained.
