Turkish Media Boasts of Ukraine Using Bayraktar Drone to “Destroy Russian Armament”
"Once again", "a familiar scene from Syria and Azerbaijan"
In Ukraine’s 1st combat use, Bayraktar TB2 destroys Russian armament
Once again video of a Turkey-made unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV), namely Bayraktar TB2, destroying a Russian-made land vehicle went viral on social media.
The footage, showing a familiar scene from Syria and Azerbaijan, was this time shared by the Ukrainian Armed Forces on Tuesday.
It was the Bayraktar TB2 combat drone’s first-ever deployment by the Ukrainian army – which has quite a few of them in its inventory – to destroy a howitzer used by pro-Russian separatists in Donbass.
The Bayraktar TB2 was used for the first time to force the separatists to abide by a cease-fire, the armed forces said in a Facebook statement.
One Ukrainian soldier was killed and two others were wounded by the howitzers, the statement said.
The Kremlin said Wednesday that its fears about Turkey’s decision to sell strike drones to Ukraine were being realized and that the Turkish drones risked destabilizing the situation in eastern Ukraine.
Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov was commenting on media reports that Ukrainian government forces had successfully deployed a Turkish-made Bayraktar TB2 drone to strike a position in eastern Ukraine controlled by Russian-backed separatists.

Why do you always write “Russian-backed” before separatists? They get help (not enough) from Russia, these are brave rebels who defend themselves against evil empire backed Nazi junta.
Thank you for making clear who is your boss. Just rename yourselves from anti-empire to Biden’s bitches.
Putin dermo, doing nothing,….Israeli holop
Unfortunately, Russia these days is looking like Controlled Opposition that refuses to strike back at any attack against their people – whether it s a biological or military attack. A thousand deaths a day isn t good enough so they blame their citizens?
