Ukrainian forces shoot down nearly 500 Russian kamikaze drones since September 2022
The Spokesperson for the Air Force Command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Yuriy Ihnat told Ukrainian television that nearly 500 Russian drones have been downed since Sept. 2022.
“As you can see, 84 drones were shot down in two days – on New Year’s Eve and the following day. 100% were shot down by Air Defense Forces. Such results have never been achieved before. The number of drones has already approached 500 since September 11. That is 500 drones shot down,” Ihnat said.
According to Ukraine’s President, Russia is planning a protracted campaign of drone attacks in a bid to demoralize Ukraine.
