Ukrainian surveillance drones start mission on border with Russian-occupied Crimea
Ukrainian-made drones, the Spectator-M, have been employed to patrol the administrative border between mainland Ukraine and Russian-occupied Crimea.
"Recently, the Kherson border detachment has received locally produced Spectator-M unmanned aerial vehicles. From now on, the border guards can monitor observance of the border regime not only from the ground, but also from the air," the Azov-Black Sea regional division of the Ukrainian Border Guard Service reported on Facebook on Saturday, April 14.
The drones are equipped with modern surveillance cameras covering a distance of up to 50 kilometers at an altitude of up to 2,000 meters.
"At the moment, the Spectator-M drones are being used in the maritime sector the border detachment is in charge of and on the land area on the administrative border with Crimea," the department added.
