The russian federation has resumed strikes on Ukraine with Iranian Shahed kamikaze drones thanks to a new batch but uses them more sparingly

That was said representative of the Defense Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine , Andriy Yusov, on the air of the national telethon.

"Yes, this is a new batch, but compared to the initial massive use of Shaheds, it is obviously smaller." We are not commenting on the quantity now, but we see that, for example, during yesterday's massive terrorist missile strikes, Shaheds were not used. All other available means, all missile weapons were used," Yusov said.
