Drones disseminated Ukrainian leaflets over parade in occupied Donetsk

War in the Donbas

Ukrainian air intelligence of the Victory Sisters Foundation used drones to drop over three thousand leaflets on 9 May 2016 in the sky over Donetsk, occupied by combined Russian-separatist forces. Vitaliy Hubskyi, a volunteer of the Foundation, wrote about it on his fb page. At that time, a parade was being held with weapons banned under the Minsk agreement.

“Leaflets ‘Donetsk is Ukraine!’, ‘We have conquered fascists and will conquer ruscists too!’, ‘We will win back the Ukrainian Donetsk – the worker-city!’, ‘Zakharchenko is a thief!’ and others, were dropped over the city central square and the platform with the leaders of the self-proclaimed “Donetsk People’s Republic” and “Luhansk People’s Republic” Zakharchenko, Plotnitskiy and others. Pro-Russian terrorists opened fire on the Victory Sisters’ drones using assault rifles, machine guns and anti-aircraft mounts. They also tried to misguide our drones using powerful radioelectronic warfare systems and anti-aircraft mount fire,” the volunteer comments.

“The myth about the almighty Russian radioelectronic warfare system has thus been debunked just like previously the myth about the almighty Russian army! This air intelligence action has caused furious response in Donetsk and nearly caused the failure of the ‘parade’ arranged by the representatives of the Occupied Regions of the Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts. Over three thousand leaflets with pro-Ukrainian and patriotic contents were dropped over the city on 9 May 2016 in three. The drones have also identified the locations of the enemy’s equipment, manpower and engineering constructions,” adds Hubskyi.

Ukrainian patriots in the occupied Donetsk were greeted with leaflets. Ukrainian drones dropped several thousand leaflets during the military parade of the Russian-backed separatists. This way the Ukrainian military greeted the patriots who still remained in Donbas on Victory Day. Despite the severe security measures of the Russian mercenaries the drones have made it smoothly through the frontiers straight to the center of the Donetsk City.

Victory Sisters foundation is a charitable fund helping Ukrainian soldiers at the front. It is part of the Verified ways to help the Ukrainian Army.
