Ukrainian National Security and Defence Council Secretary Danilov says Iranian drone trainers eliminated in Crimea
Ukrainian Security Council Secretary Oleksiy Danilov said this in an interview with the British newspaper Guardian.
He confirmed that the Iranian instructors who had been training the Russian military to operate Iranian-made UAVs had been liquidated by the Ukrainian armed forces on the territory of temporarily occupied Crimea.
By the way, the death of the Iranian instructors was reported in October by the Israeli media. However, the Russian Federation and Iran denied having such instructors on the territory of Crimea. This information was once reported by the US special services. Also, Russia and Iran did not recognize the purchase of Shaked drones. After some time, Iran acknowledged that it had delivered the drones, but a small number and before the start of full-scale war.
Alexei Danilov's direct speech:
You should not be where you are not supposed to be. They were on our territory. We did not invite them here, and if they collaborate with terrorists and participate in the destruction of our nation, we must kill them.
Regarding Iran's denial about sending instructors, Danilov stressed:
We understand that these things don't fly unless people are trained to handle them, and Russians don't have the brains to figure it out for themselves... In today's world nothing can be hidden. When everything will become known to the public is a matter of time.
