"This is a dangerous weapon": Ihnat warns of the possibility of new tactics of Russian attacks on Ukraine
The Ukrainian Air Force predicts that the Russian occupation army will act brazenly in the next missile and drone attacks. The invaders regularly use new tactics to bypass air defense systems.
At the same time, the Russians are forced to act in accordance with the availability of their striking capabilities. This was stated by Yuriy Ihnat, spokesperson for the Air Force Command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, during a national telethon.
According to him, the Russian army has been regularly changing its tactics since the beginning of the full-scale invasion. However, it should now be borne in mind that the enemy may use fewer missiles in future attacks. At the same time, the enemy has significantly increased the number of attack drones.
"While there will not be as many missiles as last year, the situation with drones is completely different. I'm not just talking about the ones I mentioned, the same Shahdas. Just look at how many FPV drones they are producing now, thousands and thousands. As we see it, this is a dangerous weapon, we use FPV drones ourselves," Ihnat said.
Ihnat also emphasized that countermeasures and air defense should be selected taking into account the fact that the enemy will build up attack UAVs.
