Storyline


Russia's Defense Ministry displayed a pair of drones on Thursday at a press briefing as they provided details on a raid they conducted in Syria following attacks on two of its military bases in the country.

Terrorists targeted Russia’s Hmeymim and Tartus military bases with 13 drones on January 6. Seven of them were destroyed and six others were captured by electronic warfare measures. The drones were equipped with ten self-made bombs, weighing 400 grams each, according to the ministry.

The drones are different both in technological features and usage compared to those previously used by armed militants in Syria. A detailed assessment on the captured vehicles showed that drone-experts were involved in the building process, said Major General Aleksandr Novikov, head of the Department for Construction and Development of the System for the Application of the UAV of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.

"The result of the assessment shows that the radio electronic devices on these drones realized pre-programmed self-driving and bomb dropping and ruled out all possible disruptions to the controlling system. In addition, the accuracy of the coordinates introduced from the controlling software on the drones surpassed the information that could be obtained online by anybody," he said.

The ministry also warned that similar technology could be used in other places in the future, and that international cooperation is needed to fight such threats.

"The drone threat is not limited to Syria. Similar deadly drones can be used by terrorists in other countries and not only against military targets. It requires joint work at the international level and appropriate measures to neutralize the threat," said Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov.
