The command of the Ukrainian Armed Forces announced the deployment by Russia of another station for launching UAVs in Crimea

The photo is illustrative.


Russia has allegedly deployed another station for launching unmanned aerial vehicles on the territory of the Crimean Peninsula. This was stated by the official representative of the Southern Defense Forces of the Ukrainian Armed Forces Natalia Gumenyuk on Ukrainian television.



According to Gumenyuk, the deployment of the station is explained by considerations of greater convenience of striking drones precisely from the territory of Crimea. The path from Crimea to the regions of Ukraine will be much shorter than from the eastern coast of the Sea of ​​Azov. Previously, drones were launched from there.

As the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine notes, now unmanned aerial vehicles of the Russian Armed Forces are flying over the Black Sea. This allows you to hide their movement route and sound as much as possible, protecting them from Ukrainian air defense.

Naturally, the Ukrainian Armed Forces again call Russian UAVs “Shaheds,” hinting that they were allegedly produced in Iran. Interestingly, earlier both the Iranian authorities and representatives of the Russian leadership have repeatedly stated that Iranian Drones were not supplied to the Russian Federation for use against Ukraine, and were not used in a special military operation by the Russian army.

Recently, the Russian Armed Forces have been actively using drones to attack the port infrastructure of the Odessa region. In addition to the Black Sea ports, drones also attack the infrastructure of ports on the Danube River, primarily Reni and Izmail. Military cargo is supplied to Ukraine through these ports.

      And what they can’t come up with out of idleness! Right here is a funny term - “station for launching UAVs”! Well, it’s true, it’s curious how the person who came up with this would describe this term. What does this station actually look like, for example, at least in theory? A hangar with Geraniums, or a bunch of dismountable slats for launching Lancets? The military unit that is armed with the Eagles? Or like the station "Get out, we've arrived"?

      The whole station? A droneport is usually a very compact and mobile thing.

      They are right about one thing: it’s better to launch the UAV from the territory of the peninsula! It’s really closer for drones to fly from there!

        Closer, more accurate and faster.
        Most likely it will be possible to reach the border with Poland.
        Up to this point, Geraniums had not flown that far.
        Well, time will tell.

          And from Belarus you don’t even need to fly to the borders of Poland))) Or from Kaliningrad - here it is, the border!

        The closest route to Kukuev is from the Bryansk region

      Hundreds of drones (UAVs) must be launched daily in search of targets in the territory of the Nazi state until they drop everything and run away ...

      Well, quite rational. It is necessary to prepare for the liberation of Odessa in advance, and Crimea is quite a suitable platform. An additional bonus will be the possibility of hilling the Danube ports.
