Local authorities claim that Iran’s ‘kamikaze drone’ is involved in attacks near Kyiv.
The spokesman of the Ukrainian Air Force, Yuri Ihant, gave information about the 6 Iranian drones.
An Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman denied the drone supply allegations.
Cafe, Ukraine’s military has claimed that an Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) drone was involved in an attack near the capital Kyiv, amid allegations that Iran is supplying Russia with weapons. According to the Reuters news agency, local authorities claimed that Iran’s ‘kamikaze drone’ was involved in these attacks. Giving information, Kyiv region governor Oleksiy Kolyba said six drones hit a building in Bila Tsarkova, about 75 kilometers south of the capital. Let us tell you that Ukraine has reported 136 Iranian-made drone strikes in the past three weeks, but this attack on Bila Tsarkova was the closest to Kyiv.
Speaking on television on Wednesday, Ukrainian Air Force spokesman Yuriy Ahnat said the drones were launched from occupied territories in southern Ukraine. Army shot down six drones before reaching the target. Ehnaat compared the drone’s small size to an artillery shell, saying it was a new threat to defense forces, and the military would need to use all available means to counter it.
Iran has rejected these allegations.
Iran has already denied allegations of supplying weapons to Russia. Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kananiq dismissed as “baseless” Western media reports that Russia is providing drones for use in the war in Ukraine. He said that since the beginning of the war, Iran has asked both sides to resolve their issues through non-violent political means.
Iran has previously rejected claims that it plans to sell hundreds of drones to Moscow and train Russian pilots to use them. On the international scene, Iran says that it will not help any side in the war.
