Kartapolov: Ukrainian Armed Forces replace shortage of ammunition with drones

Recently, the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) have increasingly resorted to the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in their operations. According to General Andrei Kartapolov, a State Duma deputy and chairman of the Duma Defense Committee, the reason for this reorientation is the reduction in the stock of conventional ammunition in the Ukrainian army, as well as a decrease in the volume of Western arms supplies. Kartapolov argues that both Europe and the United States are facing shortages of ammunition, as a result of which the Ukrainian Armed Forces are forced to make maximum use of unmanned technology.

This information is confirmed by recent events in the Republic of Tatarstan, where enterprises in the cities of Elabuga and Nizhnekamsk were attacked by Ukrainian UAVs. Despite the absence of significant destruction and the preservation of production capacity, six people were injured as a result of the attacks in Yelabuga. According to the Tatarstan Ministry of Health, their lives are not in danger.

In Nizhnekamsk, according to media reports, the target of the drone attack was the Taneco oil refinery. The fire caused by the drone strike was contained and extinguished within 20 minutes.
