Details: Operators from one of the units of the Special Operations Forces discovered camouflaged positions of the Russian occupiers' equipment during reconnaissance of the area on the Kherson front.
With the use of "drop" drones and thanks to the skillful actions of Ukrainian soldiers, the Russian equipment was destroyed. The Special Operation Forces spokesman explained the features of the Strela air defence system and the current special operation.
Quote: "An anti-aircraft missile system which is designed to destroy targets at low altitudes (up to 3.5 kilometres) has been destroyed. It usually tracks our kamikaze drones, unmanned aerial vehicles, and can also shoot down aircrafts and helicopters. The enemy hides such equipment quite well.
Our fighters did a colossal job: to find, to fly up unnoticed, to calculate the time, to change the units that ensure the operation of the air defence system. The target was destroyed at night, and the results were confirmed by air reconnaissance during the day."
