The Ukrainian forces have destroyed a Russian Buk surface-to-air missile system. The launcher was eliminated with the assistance of a drone.
The Ukrainian forces made seven strikes on concentrations of Russian manpower over the last 24 hours, the General Staff said.
Ukrainian HIMARS rockets hit a Buk-M3 air defense system, five areas where Russian soldiers were concentrated, three fuel depots, and a Zoopark radar reconnaissance and control complex.
An enemy Orlan-10 reconnaissance drone was also downed.
Around 700 Russian invaders were killed during the day. Russia has now lost more than 300,000 soldiers since the full-scale invasion began.
The M142 HIMARS multiple rocket launcher destroyed a self-propelled launcher of the Buk surface-to-air missile system. The EOS C VTOL reconnaissance drone was used to adjust the fire.
The drone was developed by Estonian company Threod Systems. It can reach a speed of 110 kilometres per hour and has a range of 120 kilometres. At the same time, the radius is no more than 50 kilometres.
Sergey Pritula’s charity foundation last week opened a fundraiser for five unmanned aerial systems, each consisting of a control station and three drones. It needs $3.25 million to buy EOS C VTOLs for the Ukrainian Defence Ministry’s Main Intelligence Directorate. More than half of the amount has already been raised.
