Having formed the 1st and the 2nd Army Corps, invaders established separate UAVs companies at these corps, and then separate UAVs groups at the brigades and regiments. This was stated on the air of “PRO Viisko” programme by a representative of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine Vadym Skibitskyi.
The representative of the military intelligence of Ukraine told about sharp decreasing the quality of the Russian UAVs after imposing the international economic sanctions against Russia. According to him, invaders’ UAVs, which were shot down by the Ukrainian warriors in 2014, had many elements of German, French, Japanese and South Korean production. When the foreign component parts had been finished, the Russian producers tried to install the component parts of domestic manufacture on aerial vehicles, but their quality is much lower than the quality of foreign components. Therefore, the process of further development of the Russian unmanned aviation was slowed down.
