British intelligence: No more kamikaze drones in Russia after bomb terror

After the bomb terror against Ukrainians
LONDON: Russia has run out of kamikaze drones

For weeks, Russian troops have invaded Ukraine. The British Ministry of Defense said there had been no reports of kamikaze drone strikes for several days. “Russia has nearly exhausted its current reserves.”

According to British estimates, Russia is increasingly relying on Iranian drones in its war against Ukraine. With this, Russia wants to make up for its lack of cruise missiles, the Ministry of Defense in London said, citing intelligence findings. Since September, Russian troops have used hundreds of missiles against Ukraine, including so-called kamikaze drones. “But the approach has had limited success,” it said. Most of the drones were taken down by the Ukrainian air defense.

The targets of the drone strikes were primarily tactical military equipment and the Ukrainian power grid, the British ministry said. More recently, however, Russian commanders demanded that Iranian drones target medical facilities and attack them with guided missiles.

However, no attacks by kamikaze drones have been reported in London for several days. “Russia has nearly exhausted its current reserves, but may be scrambling to resupply.”

Sources in London said it would be easier for Russia to buy new drones from abroad than to build new cruise missiles. Since Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine began in late February, the British Ministry of Defense has issued daily updates on the progress of the war, citing intelligence.

Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov previously released an overview of the remaining Russian missile arsenal. Accordingly, 829 Iskander-type missiles, i.e. more than four-fifths, were launched. In the case of the Ch-101 and Ch-555 air-to-air missiles, they say half of the arsenal is still there.
