OK South explained why Russia stopped using Iranian drones

The head of the Joint Coordination Press Center of the Defense Forces of Southern Ukraine, the spokeswoman of the operational command “South” Natalia Gumenyuk spoke about this on the air of the national telethon on November 28, broadcast by the channel “Opera”.

The TV presenter noted that in recent weeks Shahed-136 “stopped flying or getting into reports” of the Ukrainian military and asked if they had stopped flying.

Gumenyuk said in response that these UAVs are included in the reports “as soon as they appear.”

“Now the enemy mainly uses its development, these are” Lancets “. If they attack from time to time [беспилотниками] positions of our troops in the Kherson region, so these are “Lancets”, as a rule. The fact that there are no “martyrs” – probably “shoe change”. Because, nevertheless, Iran and Ukraine are in different climatic zones and must somehow adapt to this. Weather conditions are now very difficult and atypical even for the south of Ukraine. Because winter is a little milder than before. And a lot of fog. This is likely to be a stumbling block. Also, they continue to train instructors and us quite systematically interfere with them in thisshe added.


Russia uses at least two types of Iranian UAVs in Ukraine: kamikaze drones Shahed-136 and multipurpose UAVs Mohajer-6. The Russians repainted Shahed in their colors and called “Geranium-2”.

The President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky announced this on October 26 Russia has already released around 400 Iranian kamikaze drones in Ukraine. On October 28, Yury Ignat, spokesman for the Air Force Command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, said that The AFU has shot down more than 300 Iranian kamikaze drones, as a result of which Russia reduced the intensity of attacks. On November 3, Andrei, a representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine Yusov said Iran has sent a new batch of 200 drones to Russia.

Iran first denied drone deliveries to the Russian military. On Nov. 5, Iran’s Foreign Ministry admitted as much such deliveries werebut he assured that we are talking about a “limited number of drones” and deliveries “several months” before the start of a full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Tehran’s claim that it supplied a “limited number” of drones to Russia “months before the war in Ukraine started” is not true, said US Special Representative for Iran Robert Malley. He said Iran was handing over to Russia dozens of shock drones this summer.

This was reported on November 8 by the British TV channel Sky News Russia pays Iran for kamikaze dronestransporting 140 million euros in cash and samples of western weapons seized in Ukraine.

Western countries in particular Canada And United States of Americaimposed sanctions on the Iranian drone manufacturer.

This was reported on November 22 by the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry Ukraine and Iran have met on drones transferred to Russia. Ukraine informed Iran at the meeting that the consequences of participating in Russian aggression “will be incommensurable with the potential benefits of cooperation with Russia.”
