How dangerous Iranian drones are for Ukraine

However, the Shahed-136 Iranian kamikaze drones are causing significant trouble for the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
Unfortunately, drones are an effective weapon, as it turned out. That is, it does us some harm. But there are not so many of them, – said the adviser to the head of the Presidential Office.
Ukraine has masterpieces of kamikaze drones
However, according to Podolyak, in Ukraine has even better weapons. After all, Ukrainian inventors created masterpieces of kamikaze drones, which can enter any territory.

“Targets in Donbas and Crimea are absolutely legal”

For us, all the goals that exist on the territory of Donbass and Crimea are absolutely legal. Our partners, including representatives of the Pentagon, have already spoken about this more than once – we can absolutely clearly use any weapon. Including the one given to us by foreign partners, – said the adviser to the head of the OP.

“And we will do it. And the same HIMARS will help us with this,” he said .
Why is it so important for Ukraine to get ATACMS
Podolyak stressed that Ukraine has the legal right to destroy everything that concerns Russian military viability.
We will do this with everything we have. Including using our drones, which are transferred to us by partners, HIMARS. It is also desirable to obtain ATACMS, because they will allow us to accelerate the destruction of the remnants of the rear infrastructure support of the Russian army. – said the adviser to the head of the President's Office.
As Podolyak explained, it is through Crimea that the Russians overturn their reserves to the Kherson, Zaporozhye and Kryvyi Rih directions.
