Russia to teach young students how to build MILITARY DRONES as part of craft lessons
By Zoey Sky // Feb 12, 2024

Young Russian students will soon be learning about drone technology for military and industrial purposes as part of their craft lessons. Russian Senator Artem Sheikin announced that the lessons would include how to conduct terrain reconnaissance and ways to counter enemy unscrewed aerial vehicles (UAVs).

Russia's Deputy Education Minister Tatyana Vasilyeva also announced that students would spend more time studying technical drawing, a skill needed for work with blueprints.

As early as July 2023, the U.K.'s Ministry of Defense warned that Russian schoolchildren were being taught the basics of combat drones. (Related: Russia making progress toward goal of MASS PRODUCING combat drones to rival Ukraine’s Western-supplied drone fleet.)

Drones have become a key weapon in Russia-Ukraine war

In recent weeks, Ukrainian forces have been having major successes as a column of 11 Russian tanks and armored vehicles were destroyed by the former's kamikaze drones.

The Ukrainian Ministry of Defense also celebrated the sinking of a £55 million ($69 million) Russian warship off Crimea in a strike just off the coast by sharing footage of the exact moment that the 184-foot warship was hit.

The Black Sea missile ship Ivanovets was in Lake Donuzlav, a bay in the west of Crimea used for military vessels when it was attacked. The fate of the crew, who resisted the attack and shot at the drones, remains unknown.

Neither the Russian Ministry of Defense nor the Navy have officially confirmed the strike.

However, several pro-war military channels on Telegram have corroborated Ukrainian reports.

The Military Informant Telegram channel reported that, as a result of a number of direct hits to the hull, "the Russian ship received damage that was incompatible with further movement - the Ivanovets tilted to the stern and sank."

Another channel reported that the crew of the ship deserves credit because they "fought to the last."

Reports also revealed that even after three hits on the ship, "you can see how rounds are being fired at the naval drone."

The operation was led by Group 13 special forces of the Ukrainian GUR military intelligence agency. They are also believed to have launched at least nine drones from positions near the Black Sea port of Odesa.

Once the strike is confirmed, the Ivanovets will be added to a long list of Russian naval warships that have been put out of commission by Ukraine's forces.

The recent successes by Ukraine's military have allegedly left President Vladimir Putin "fuming."

According to reports, Putin has reportedly told Russian soldiers about how he will "hit squares in Kyiv or in any other city" in revenge.

Russian military's drone supplies will grow in 2024

In an interview on the Rossiya-24 TV, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov said the supplies of drones, "first and foremost sea drones," to the Russian military in 2024 will grow.

Manturov added that the Russian armed forces "are actively using them in many areas." He explained that the range of products is wide and includes heavy UAVs to first-person view (FPV) drones.

When asked about the growth of military production in 2024, Manturov said this concerns both sea-unmanned systems and ground-based unmanned systems.

This is also one of the important areas where Russia will be working together with the Defense Ministry and their industrial enterprises to build up both competencies and production volumes.

Manturov said communication equipment that ensured tactical interaction in the field would also be produced in greater amounts. Additionally, the production of heavy and light armored vehicles, air defense systems and equipment for counter-battery warfare will expand.
