Ukraine announced, on Tuesday, that it had shot down 67 Iranian marches since the beginning of December.
A spokesman for the Ukrainian Air Force, Yuriy Ihnat, said in a press briefing that his country’s forces shot down 67 Iranian-made “Shahid” suicide drones this December.
Ihnat explained that the Ukrainian forces “believe that the marches are part of the new batch that Russia received from Iran,” according to the local “Ukrainform” agency.
“The marches were previously launched from the Crimea and Kherson regions, but they are currently being launched from the Krasnodar region on the eastern coast of the Sea of Azov,” the spokesman said.

The Ukrainian official indicated that 127 Shahed drones and 300 cruise missiles were launched to attack Ukraine last November and this December.
On February 24, Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine, followed by international rejection and economic sanctions on Moscow, which requires Kyiv to abandon plans to join military entities to end its operation, which the latter considers an “interference” in its sovereignty.
