Russia increasing pace of UAV production - Ukraine army spox

The Russian Federation is increasing the pace of drone production.

This was reported by the head of the joint coordination press center Operational Command South, Natalia Humeniuk, Ukrinform reports with reference to Armyinform.

"They are trying to establish this production domestically as they fear that sanctions against Iran may hinder the supply of UAVs to Russia. We do not lose hope that the international community will keep an eye on the issue. We are preparing for air attacks from the Russian side, realizing that the enemy will continue to put pressure at us from the air. For now, the enemy is aware of its aerial superiority. That is why they employ terror as often as possible," Humeniuk said.
