After Ukraine began to actively use the Turkish Baykarat TB2 attack drones, it turned out that at least one of the drones was able to freely enter the airspace of the Crimean peninsula and approach the Russian air defense positioning area up to several kilometers.

At the same time, the aircraft was able to remain unnoticed.

According to ANNA-News, pro-Turkish sources claim that the Ukrainian side took this picture from a Bayraktar TB2 drone.

"This frame supposedly depicts the position of Russian air defense systems that are on duty in Crimea. This shot was taken during an observation flight along the border of the peninsula. In addition, the news notes the transfer of Ukrainian troops to the southeast of the country, where a large-scale offensive operation can be prepared", the news agency reports.

So far, experts cannot say with certainty which air defense system is meant, however, it can be assumed, given a number of assumptions, that a mobile coastal over-the-horizon radar station with increased stealth "Limit" turned out to be in the sight of the Turkish drone.

Avia.pro clarifies that, judging by the range, the drone could have been only a few kilometers from the Russian positions. This may indicate that the radars missed his approach.

We will remind that earlier the USA sent shock drones to the territory of Ukraine. Experts believe that there is a serious threat to Donbass.
