Ukraine has demanded the destruction of 35 Iranian-designed drones launched by the Russian military. Air defense systems in the capital Kiev and elsewhere across the country destroyed the drones overnight, the country said Thursday.
This news was informed in a report of the news agency AFP.
The Ukrainian Air Force said in a telegram that Russian occupiers attacked Chouda in occupied Crimea, Primorsko in Akhtarsk and Kursk from three directions with ‘Shaheed’ type UAV drones. They destroyed 35 drones. No casualties were reported.
Ukraine has been subject to almost daily drone attacks. Kiev has strengthened its air defense system with weapons from its European and US allies. Lately, Moscow has increased nighttime attacks.
Meanwhile, Ukraine has asked its allies to provide more air defense systems.
On the other hand, the Democratic and Republican leaders of the US Senate said last Tuesday that Washington will not be able to approve new aid for Ukraine before the end of the year.
