Russians organize production of combat drones in Zaporizhzhia, planning to involve children
Russians are organizing the production of combat drones in the temporarily occupied territories, particularly in Zaporizhzhia. The enemy traditionally hides behind the backs of the civilian population and even involves underage Ukrainians in this process.
This was reported by the mayor of Melitopol Ivan Fedorov (to watch the video, scroll to the bottom of the page). According to him, the Russian invaders have set up a mini-production of drones based on the "Sudoplatov Battalion", which employs mercenaries from all over Russia.
Some schools and vocational education institutions also have begun to teach high students how to use UAVs, while colleges are reportedly teaching teenagers and young people how to assemble and repair drones.
"The worst thing is that they are trying to hide behind our children when they try to assemble and repair military equipment," Fedorov said.
He added that the Russians plan to set up a so-called technology park for the production of UAVs, hiding it in residential areas. The enemy knows that the Ukrainian Armed Forces will not attack this facility, risking harm to civilians.
"The occupiers and their collaborators are turning the temporarily occupied territories of Zaporizhzhia region into a militarized gray zone," the mayor summarized.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, Russians and collaborators are "militarizing" the educational process in the temporarily occupied territory of the Zaporizhzhia region. They are trying to brainwash children, glorifying the Russian army.
