Russian Attacks: Ukrainian Drone Operator Captures Incredible Video of Dodging TOR-2M Missile

Kyiv, Ukraine – A Ukrainian drone operator has captured an incredible video of dodging a Russian TOR-2M missile and then catching up with it. The video, which has since gone viral, shows the missile speeding towards the drone before swerving away at the last second. The operator then expertly guided the drone to pursue the missile and captured stunning footage of it exploding in mid-air.

The incident is just the latest in a rising tide of attacks by Russia on Ukrainian targets. CNN reports that there is a “pattern emerging” as Russians in border regions report new attacks. The attacks have included missile strikes on Ukrainian cities, including Kyiv, as well as drone attacks on military infrastructure.

The BBC has been tracking the rise of these attacks, noting that they are escalating in both frequency and sophistication. The article notes that Russia’s use of drones in particular is becoming increasingly sophisticated, with drones capable of carrying out precision strikes and reconnaissance missions.

Meanwhile, Newsweek is reporting on the real reason behind Ukraine’s decision to only take responsibility for some attacks on Russia. The article argues that Ukraine is trying to avoid provoking a full-scale conflict with Russia, which could have dire consequences for the country and the region as a whole.

In Russia, however, the Moscow Times reports that the regime is ignoring the drone attacks on the capital. The article argues that the government is downplaying the extent of the attacks for fear of appearing weak and vulnerable.

As tensions between Russia and Ukraine continue to rise, it remains to be seen how the situation will develop and whether a full-scale conflict can be avoided.
