Rusia afirma que drones de la era soviética modificados de Ucrania alcanzan bases aéreas en su territorio
December 6, 2022 - La capacidad de Ucrania de lanzar ataques con drones tiera adentro en Rusiaindica la disposición de Kiev para intensificar sus acciones en la guerra.
The Russian defence ministry said that the drone attacks had killed three people and caused damage to aircraft at the Ryazan and Engels air bases, both more than 450km from the Ukrainian border.
The drones were launched from Ukrainian territory, and at least one of the strikes was made with the help of special forces close to the base who helped guide the drones to the target, The New York Times reported, citing a senior Ukrainian official.
The Kremlin said that the weapons launched by Ukraine were Soviet-era jet drones. Reportedly, they were Tupolev Tu-141s, ex-Soviet antiques that last saw front-line use in the 1980s, flying photo-reconnaissance missions for the Soviet air force.
