Ukraine’s army aviation and anti-aircraft defense units held the joint exercise, improving their skills in shooting down hostile drones. Ukraine-made Leleka UAVs were used to imitate the enemy devices.

Helicopter pilots tracked them down, then opened fire from machineguns. This is the way to down the hostile UAVs in situations when the use of surface-to-air missiles is inappropriate.
