Early on May 3, Ukrainian air defense forces shot down another, 15th Russian drone over Odesa.
Serhiy Bratchuk, spokesperson for the Odesa regional military administration, reported this on Telegram, according to Ukrinform.
"Odesa. Another enemy Forpost UAV followed the route of a Russian warship. Thank you, air defense!" Bratchuk said.
The Forpost drone can conduct reconnaissance at an altitude of up to five kilometers for 16 hours. Its range is up to 400 kilometers.
Earlier reports said that the threat of missile strikes from temporarily occupied Crimea, as well as from Russian warships, on the Odesa region remains very high. The enemy is also attempting to conduct air reconnaissance but suffers significant losses.
