The “Military Commentator” website stated via “Telegram”, citing the portal PlaneRadar.ru, which specializes in monitoring the movement of aircraft, that Ukrainian forces launched a Turkish-made “Bayraktar” aircraft towards Donbass.
The right place The “Bayraktar TB2” aircraft flew towards Donbass, but turned around and changed course again, heading for its launch base.
The Ukrainian armed forces used the Bayraktar aircraft for the first time in hostilities in Donbass on October 26.
According to Ukrainian journalist Yuri Putusov, the plane aimed a mortar at the positions of the 93rd Mechanized Brigade of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic in Donbass, southeastern Ukraine.
Donetsk People’s Foreign Minister Natalia Nikonorova called the information about Ukraine’s use of the Turkish drone in the course of hostilities “false”.
In turn, the Chief of the General Staff of Ukraine, Sergey Shaptala, announced that his forces would use the “Bayraktar” aircraft “in case they perceive any danger threatening them.”
He said: “We use Bayraktar aircraft if there are threats to our forces, and these threats must be neutralized to save the lives of our soldiers. The use of the drone will be circumstantial.”
According to the Minsk agreements, the use of drones in Donbass is prohibited, with the exception of those of the OSCE mission, which monitors the line of contact between the unilaterally proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Forces and the Kiev forces. .
