Russia has received a new batch of Shahed-131 and Shahed-136 kamikaze drones from Iran.
APA reports that this was mentioned in the daily report of the intelligence service of the Ministry of Defense of Great Britain.
It was reported that Russia used Iranian-made kamikaze drones in Ukraine for the first time in three weeks.
It is noted that this information is still being verified, but it is likely that Russia has exhausted its previous stockpile of several hundred Shahed-131 and Shahed-136 and has procured new drones from Iran.
The information added that on December 6, the General Staff of Ukraine reported the shooting down of 17 UAVs, 14 of which were Shahed-136.
On December 7, Ukrainian officials shared information about Iranian-made kamikaze drones targeting Zaporozhye and Dnieper regions.
The Ukrainian side previously shared the latest information about the downing of the Shahed-136 drone on November 17.
"This confirms that Russia probably launched its attacks with newly delivered kamikaze drones," the report said.
