Zelenskyy: Guided aerial bombs Russia’s main tool of advance

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy stated that Ukraine is seeking to develop countermeasures against Russian guided aerial bombs. He described these bombs as Russia’s main “tool of terror” enabling their advance.

In his evening address to the nation on 22 May, Zelenskyy said he held a special security meeting on Ukrainian production of electronic warfare systems, drones, missile programs and countermeasures specifically against the Russian guided bombs. He said while progress was being made in some areas, more work is needed to defend positions and cities from these bombs.

The President said he also discussed the situation on the frontlines with commanders. The main battles continue in the Pokrovsk, Donetsk, and Kupiansk directions near the Russian border areas. He stated the task remains inflicting maximum losses on the occupying forces.
