During Sunday’s attacks on Ukraine, Russian troops launched two drones of an unknown type, media in Kiev reported. The spokesman for the Ukrainian Air Force, Yuri Ihnat, explained that the occupiers buy their engines on AliExpress.
– There are fragments (of shot down Russian drones – ed.), you can see what the enemy uses to make them. The engines for them were purchased on AliExpress (Chinese e-commerce platform – ed.) – said Yuri Ihnat.
– This is not the first time something like this has happened, when (occupiers) assemble these “machines” from simple materials, from sticks and shoot them towards our country – he said.
However, a spokesman for the Ukrainian Air Force warned that drones of this type are also dangerous because they carry several kilograms of explosives.
