Colder weather cannot impede the operation of Iran-made kamikaze drones, the Ukrainian Air Force Command spokesman Yurii Ihnat commented on Wednesday to Ukrainian TV channel TSN.

Russian forces have resumed the use of Iranian drones Shahed-136 and Shahed-131 for the first time in three weeks. Last night, these kamikaze drones attacked critical civilian infrastructure in Dnipropetrovsk and Zaporizhzhia oblasts of eastern Ukraine.

The Ukrainian air defense destroyed 14 Iran-made kamikaze drones of the Russian forces last night, according to Yurii Ihnat.
