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