Updated at 18:52. “Suspilne.Odesa” with reference to OK “Pivden” writes that Ukrainian air defense forces shot down another Russian kamikaze drone over the sea.

According to the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, as of 6:30 p.m., anti-aircraft missile units shot down six kamikaze drones. It is known that the Russian invaders attacked Ukraine with Iranian-made Shahed-136 kamikaze drones in the southern and eastern directions.

Iranian drones in the war against Ukraine

On September 16, the Air Force of the Ukrainian Armed Forces confirmed for the first time that the Russian military is using Iranian drones in Ukraine. They noted that this target is extremely difficult, so to shoot it down requires additional systems and close observation by military personnel from air defense units.

“Military” wrote that the exact characteristics of the Shahed-136 drones are currently unknown, but Western officials assume that they have an effective range of up to 2,000 km.

However, the Ukrainian military shoots down the Shahed-136. For example, on September 22, 5 kamikaze drones were shot down over Mykolaiv Oblast. At least four of them were Iranian-made Shahed-136s.
