Russian troops can use mobile platforms to launch Shahed-136/131 into Ukraine. For example, the military of the aggressor country used trucks for this purpose.

This was reported on December 16 by Yurii Ihnat, a spokesman for the Air Force Command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, on the broadcast of "Yedyni Novyny". The colonel commented on the drone attack that the enemy launched on the evening of December 15.

He said that the attack was typical. "There were drones all over the country and they were flying from three directions today: Bryansk region, Primorsko-Okhtarsk and the Kursk area," said Ihnat.

"The public is interested in which sites the Russians are launching Shahed from. The sites are not so important for the occupiers, because they can be mobile. We saw that Shahed drones were actually launched from a truck, from a car. This is a container, it can be anywhere and launch these drones," the military explained.

Another typical area for launching attack UAVs is the temporarily occupied Crimea. In this case, Iranian-made kamikaze drones fly through Kherson or Odesa regions.

In other words, the launch areas are constant, but the invaders try to constantly change the flight routes, "moving 5-10 kilometers to the left or right to avoid Ukrainian air defense systems and mobile fire groups."

Start Shahed

As OBOZ.UA previously reported:

- On the night of December 16, Russian troops carried out the sixth air attack on Kyiv since the beginning of December. They tried to shell the capital with kamikaze drones.

- The Ukrainian military reported that on the night of December 16, the enemy launched 31 Shahed-136/131. Of these, 30 were shot down by our air defense (Dnipropetrovs'k, Kyiv, Vinnytsia, Chernihiv, Sumy, Poltava, Cherkasy, Kherson, Zaporizhzhia, Mykolaiv, and Khmelnytskyi regions).

- Air alerts due to kamikaze drones can be quite lengthy, as due to their considerable range, drones can fly around the territory several times instead of directly attacking the target.
