Ukrainian army units are using small drones to fight back against Russian troops in the ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine. The drones, known as FPV (first-person view), are equipped with a camera that allows operators to direct them with precision accuracy. They are also able to carry explosives to destroy enemy targets. The drones are inexpensive to produce, costing around $400 each, and can be made using imported microchips and parts bought online. The drones have proven effective in combat situations and have given Ukrainian forces an advantage against Russian troops. Other countries, including some NATO countries, have shown interest in learning from Ukraine’s experience of drone warfare. However, there are concerns that the technology could be used by terrorists to sow terror worldwide. The commercial drones used in combat are primarily made in China, and the military use of Chinese technology has raised concerns among Ukraine’s Western allies over potential data sharing with Russia.
