Ukraine’s Drone War Against Russia: A Redefining of Modern Warfare

Ukrainian forces repelled a series of Russian air strikes over the capital city of Kyiv, but a regional airfield was hit, according to reports. The strikes come amid ongoing tension between the two countries, with Ukraine accusing Russia of annexing Crimea and supporting separatists in eastern Ukraine. Meanwhile, a Ukrainian drone operator managed to evade a Russian TOR-2M missile, as seen in a video that has gone viral. The incredible footage also shows the operator catching up to the missile. The conflict between Russia and Ukraine is explored in a new article from National Review, which looks at the way people on both sides are affected by the fighting. A piece in Newsweek examines Ukraine’s decision to only take responsibility for some attacks on Russia, while an opinion piece in the Los Angeles Times looks at how Ukrainian drones are redefining warfare.
