As a representative of the Defense Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine states, the russian federation used about 660 Iranian-made Shahed UAVs out of the 1,750 units provided for by the contract with Iran. Currently, the Russian Federation is expecting a new batch of 250-300 drones.
"They really have problems with their arsenal, including drones. To date, they have used approximately 660 Shahed drones. The contract provides for 1,750 units. It takes time to deliver and prepare them. They [Russians] have used a large amount in recent days, and these reserves need to be replenished. According to our data, they will now get another shipment. We will clarify the quantity. As a rule, before that, 250-300 pieces were brought in a batch. Let's see how it will be this time," the representative of Ukraine’s Defense Intelligence, Vadym Skibitsky, told RBC-Ukraine news agency in an interview, Ukrinform reports.

As Vadym Skibitsky states, a massive drone attack is aimed at breaking through our air defense system and hitting targets. Launching a small group – 5-10 units – will not produce such an effect.
The representative of the Defense Intelligence of Ukraine added that the Russians are using different altitudes and different directions to bypass air defense systems, as well as changing drone launch areas.
"Now they launch drones from the Russian coast of the Sea of Azov, and before that they launched them from Crimea. They may choose another direction with fewer air defense systems on the path. They will try to break through to reach the facilities," Vadym Skibitsky stated.
