British Intel: Russia unable to resist Ukrainian FPV drones on Dnipro’s eastern bank in Kherson Oblast

Russia lacks the electronic warfare capabilities in eastern Kherson to counter the remote-controlled Ukrainian drones, which, British intel said, citing a Russian blogger’s battlefield report, destroyed up to 90% of Russian military equipment in the area.

British Intel: Russia unable to resist Ukrainian FPV drones on Dnipro’s eastern bank in Kherson Oblast

Russia cannot counter the FPV-UAVs due to a shortage of Russian Electronic Warfare capability in the east bank of Dnipro Rover in the Kherson Oblast, the UK Defense Ministry reported on 12 January.

The UK intel tweeted:

  • “Ukrainian forces operating on the east bank of the Dnipr River have been using First Person View Uncrewed Aeriel Vehicles (FPV-UAVs) fitted with munitions to target Russian forces.

  • The FPV-UAVs are being used in conjunction with artillery to target Russian Forces’ vehicles, with a Russian military blogger estimating 90% of Russian military equipment in the Krynky sector has been destroyed.”

“Russia’s inability to counter the FPV-UAVs is likely due to a shortage of Russian Electronic Warfare capability in the area,” British intel concluded.

In December 2023, British intel said that Russia’s new 104th Guards Airborne Division likely endured “exceptionally heavy losses” and failed to meet its objectives near the village of Krynky on the east bank of the Dnipro River.

Earlier, UK intelligence also reported that the fighting in Krynky on the Russian-occupied eastern bank of the Dnipro River in Kherson Oblast represents a setback for Russian strategy after their withdrawal from the western bank last year. It also highlighted unexpected combat intensity despite the smaller scale compared to other areas on the front.

The report said this persistent combat reflects a significant deviation from Russia’s intended military posture, which aimed to consolidate forces and maintain stability in the sector.
