Quote: "We are already solving it [the problem of Iranian drones - ed.]. Yes, it is unpleasant, but not even unique air defence systems can guarantee 100-percent coverage of the sky. I am happy with the way our Air Force works, shooting down so many of these Shaheds. Our [soldiers] have learned to silence them.
We turned to our partners, in particular, those who are afraid to give us weapons but still have good expertise. I told them: ‘We will give you their [Iranian drones’] parts; examine them and give us the suppression systems. And a number of countries that did not want to give [us] weapons became interested in this proposal."
Background: Since September, the mass use of Iran-made kamikaze drones by the Russian army began in the south of Ukraine.
Yurii Ihnat, spokesman for Ukraine’s Air Force, said that the Ukrainian military shot down Iranian-manufactured drones launched by Russia.
