Russians increase production of attack UAVs - Ignat

Russia will increase the production of other attack UAVs besides the Shahed.

Yuriy Ihnat, a spokesman for the Armed Forces of Ukraine, said this on the air of the national telethon 'United News', Ukrinform reported'.

"We see that today, in addition to the Shaheds, there are other strike-type UAVs that Russia has produced and has in its possession. These are not only 'Lancets', but also 'Kub' type UAVs, which are also attack UAVs that were recently destroyed in the east of our country in the Dnipro region. Therefore, the enemy will definitely increase UAVs, but unfortunately, missile production is still going on. Perhaps not in the quantity the occupiers would like, but they still have it," Ihnat noted.
