Volunteers from the Veche organization delivered dozens of new drones to the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), which will be used by the military of the Russian Armed Forces. This was announced on January 22 by Izvestia correspondent Dmitry Astrakhan.
A soldier with the call sign Belorus told the journalist that he chose the Mavic drone, which works with a thermal imager, for his work. According to him, this allows you to make adjustments and detect targets even at night.
“Sometimes you have to fly up, look directly into the window of each house, because the enemy understands that he is being watched. He is in disguise, hiding. There is no such flight as before at 200 meters, you have to fly much lower, and the means of disguise are better, ”said the fighter.
He noted that the fallen leaves do not give great advantages to drones. In addition, the Ukrainian military is trained by foreign instructors, so each sortie is a certain risk, which in the end turns out to be justified.
On January 14, Russian sergeant Dzhabrail received the Zhukov medal for success in artillery reconnaissance. In an interview with Izvestia, he spoke about the specifics of his work with drones.
The sergeant entered the service in a motorized rifle company as a radio operator. In the zone of the special operation, he mastered a new specialty, which he himself calls “poultry farmer”.
On January 4, it became known that in Ukraine the question of the rationality of using missiles to fight cheap drones, the cost of which is seven times higher than these drones, is becoming more and more controversial.
It has been reported that the drones Moscow uses are relatively uncomplicated devices and quite cheap, while the set of weapons used to strike them in the sky is much more expensive.
From February 24, 2022, the Russian Federation continues a special operation to protect Donbass, against which Kyiv has been conducting military operations since 2014.
