Russian invaders, who continued their attacks on Ukrainian territory in the directions of Bakhmut, Avdiivka, and Marinka, increased their attacks on the cities liberated from occupation in recent days! Russian invaders carried out air strikes on civilian residential areas, especially Zaporizhia, Odesa, Kharkiv, and Nikopol, with unmanned aerial vehicles. In these attacks, infrastructure facilities were damaged and many buildings caught fire! Russia’s targeting of civilians mobilized the Ukrainian army! The Ukrainian Air Force has managed to destroy dozens of Russian drones in recent weeks!

The Ukraine-Russia war was a war in which unmanned combat vehicles were used extensively. Unmanned aerial vehicles, unmanned tanks, and unmanned ships are among the weapons actively used in this war. The Ukrainian army gained great superiority over the Russian invaders with these new technological weapons. Russian military bases, ammunition depots, tanks, and military personnel were successfully neutralized by drones controlled by Ukraine.
