As we approach year one of the offensive led by Russia in Ukraine, the country ruled by Vladimir Putin multiplied drone attack these last weeks. In fact, as we have repeatedly reported in the past, Russia has deployed several drones on the ground to support its armed forces.

Pavlo Kaschuka drone specialist in the country Zelensky showed and dismantled one of the drones that the Ukrainian army managed to recover during the battle that has lasted for more than ten months now.
“So it’s Orlan 10. It is a basic Russian UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle)“, confirmed the specialist who had previously shown the team off CBS News a drone. After opening the drone, the specialist pulled a module from the drone. CBS found that the logo for Swiss company U-Blox was on a chip inside. “The task of this chip is orientation in the sky”would have confirmed the specialist according to the American chain, which specifies that the expert confirmed that without him the drone would “don’t know where to fly”.
