As reported earlier, Deputy Ambassador of Ukraine to the UN Khrystyna Hayovyshyn told a meeting of the Security Council that the investigation into the supply of Iranian drones to Russia must be launched immediately.

The Ukrainian Armed Forces have shot down more than 300 Iranian-made Shahed-136 kamikaze drones since September 13.

Russia employs swarms of these one-way attack drones to attack Ukraine’s critical energy infrastructure, causing significant damage, which has already resulted in rolling blackouts across multiple regions.
