While discussions continue at various levels about the format of possible Israeli assistance to Ukraine, the Armed Forces of Ukraine are solving the issue of combating the Iranian participation in the war on the side of Russia in their own way.
10 Iranian instructors will no longer be able to teach Russians how to use kamikaze drones. According to the Ministry of Defense, they were killed in the temporarily occupied Kherson region and the Crimea.
Dmytro Kuleba, in turn, during a conversation with the Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid, described to him in detail what the bombing of the Ukrainian infrastructure and civilian facilities by Iranian drones leads to.
“We have discussed in detail Ukraine's request to Israel for the provision of air defense and missile defense systems and technologies,” Kuleba informed. Neither the Israeli nor the Ukrainian side disclose any more details of this conversation.
At the same time, there are many indications that Iran is using Ukraine as a testing ground for the drones, which were clearly produced not for the Russian-Ukrainian war. Therefore, it would also be in Israel's interests to “test” its advanced air defense / missile defense systems in Ukraine, wrote Boris Lozhkin on Facebook.
