The spokesperson of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Alexander Stupun released a statement, according to multiple Ukrainian news sites.
"The opponent continues to focus efforts on attempts to occupy the Donetsk region, the hold of the occupied territories and the disruption of the Defense Forces' active actions in individual directions," he said.
"Over the past 24 hours, the opponent launched 4 missiles and 16 air strikes," Stupun continues. "The enemy uses Iranian-made Shahed-136 drones to strike infrastructure. More than 30 settlements were affected by the enemy strikes."
Russia and their use of Iranian-made drones
The Strategic Communications Department of the Ukrainian Armed Forces announced that on September 13, an Iranian-made drone was shot down near Kupiansk in the Kharkiv Oblast of eastern Ukraine.
The department then published photos of the destroyed drone of what looked similar to the Shahed-136.
Before the drone was shot down by Ukrainian forces, the US had warned that Iran was providing Russia with drones.
