Air Defence Runs

Ukrainian military shot down 19 Russian drones "Shaheds" in 2 hours

On October 26, the Kremlin tried to launch a new massive strike on Ukraine. The Russians airlifted 19 Iranian low-flying drones, splitting them into 2 batches.

"The occupiers continue to attack Ukraine with Iranian-made kamikaze drones. So, from 10 to 12 p. m. on October 26, more than 2 dozen Shahed-136," was released in the Ukrainian press centre of the Air Force command.

This means the Russians wanted to ruin another night for the Ukrainians and perhaps make new sacrifices at Putin's feet. From 10 p. m. to 12 p. m., the whole of Ukraine was "flooded" with alarm. However, Ukrainians could hear only the roar and explosions of the air defence. The defenders of their country have destroyed all the drones that have departed from Russian points. 15 Shahed was destroyed in the Odesa region, 3 — in the Mykolaiv area; 1 drone — in the Vinnytsia territory. Also, the air defence worked in the Dnipro region. Ukrainian soldiers repelled the Russian attempt to attack the country with Soviet missiles there.

"The high efficiency of combat work demonstrated the armament provided to Ukraine by the western partners. Thank you to the allies! In addition, in the area of responsibility of the air command East, the surface-to-air missile unit destroyed the guided air missile X-59, says the command report.

Thus, the Kremlin spent more than $150 million on the fireworks in 2 hours.
