“This is a new batch (of Shahed drones – ed.), we do not remark on its dimension, but we see that Shaheds have been not employed during yesterday’s significant terrorist missile strikes. All other offered weapons have been made use of, and these ended up all missiles and no Shaheds. This is a new batch, but this just one, as opposed to the preliminary mass use of Shahed, is clearly scaled-down,” claimed Yusov.
In addition, in accordance to the official, Ukrainian intelligence is informed of previous agreements achieved amongst Russia and Iran concerning the offer of ballistic missiles.
“As of today, we have not observed Iranian ballistic missiles in Russia for use towards Ukraine, whilst this kind of a risk exists and this information is being monitored. Also, certain endeavours are currently being created to be certain that this circumstance is not applied. But there is this sort of a threat,” stressed the spokesperson.
