The Air Force called the target of the night attack of the Russian Federation “Shaheds”
The Russians are now using Iranian Shahed attack drones to track down and deplete Ukrainian air defenses. The speaker of the Air Force, Colonel Yuri Ignat, spoke about this on the air of the telethon.
«Previously, they were more used in combination with missiles. Now they are depleting air defense, detecting places (its location). The same A 50 radar plane takes off when, according to «Shahedam» we are conducting combat work, he fixes the places of launches from our anti-aircraft missile systems. Thus, they discover and make an algorithm, where we start from, how we move, etc.», — he said.
Ignat clarified that, unlike previous times, Russia launched Iranian drones this night not from the eastern coast of the Sea of Azov, but from the Bryansk region of the Russian Federation.
