How Shahed drones reach Lviv region: Air Force spokesman clarified Russian tactics
Russians launch drones at Ukraine almost every night. At the same time, the occupiers have begun to use new routes for their targets so that these drones can fly as far as possible. The enemy knows where powerful Ukrainian air defense systems are located and how to overcome them.
This was stated by Yurii Ihnat, spokesperson for the Ukrainian Air Force Command, on the air of Hovoryt Velykyi Lviv TV program. He also spoke about the importance of mobile fire groups.
As Ihnat explained, each enemy drone flies along a given route to a point target, a specific object. In addition to hitting the target, the enemy's goal is to deplete our air defense and find weaknesses in our air defense.
"Enemy drones fly along the borders of regions, along riverbeds, using the terrain, knowing more or less where we have powerful air defense systems and how to overcome them... Thus, a certain number of drones can reach Khmelnytskyi and even Lviv regions," Ihnat said.
He also added that mobile firing groups are very important today as the enemy launches drones almost every night, and there is a lack of stationary air defense in Ukraine.
"We also expect that the German, French, American, and other industries will increase their capacities many times over in order to provide us with a sufficient number of both air defense systems and air defense systems. Because there are fewer and fewer Soviet weapons, although last year they were the basis for protecting our infrastructure. There are relatively more Western weapons, but they are still not enough," the spokesman said.
