About this < strong>Channel 24 said Yury Ignat, speaker of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. He also noted that we are actively working on such targets, today we managed to “land” 13 drones.

“It is not difficult to detect it on the radar, it is not such an inconspicuous target,” says Ignat.
