Ukrainian servicemen shot down a Russia-made drone that was performing a reconnaissance flight in the Volnovakha district, Donetsk region. The ZALA 421-04M drone fell on a mine field, so it took some time before the engineers brought it to workers of the Security Service. The vehicle is designed for surveillance under difficult weather conditions and dropping small cargo.

“Terrorist groups regularly use UAVs in this area in breach of Minsk agreements. The Security Service repeatedly noted that the intensity of enemy attacks near Hranitne village increased each time after drones performed surveillance flights over it”, the Security Service reported.
