Drones that attacked the Novoshakhtinsk oil refinery were identified as Bayraktars

Formally, the PD-1 is considered a reconnaissance aircraft. The Turkish drone has a peculiar fuselage shape and a characteristic tail in the form of a triangle. The range of the device is 50 kilometers. However, Aleksey Leonkov believes that in this case, another drone struck. They operate at a distance of several tens of kilometers. This version was proposed by a military expert, editor of the Arsenal of the Fatherland magazine Alexei Leonkov. The range of the “Bayraktar”, limited by the ability to control it by the operator, is about the same. Indeed, in a straight line from Donetsk Avdiivka, where a large grouping of the armed forces of Ukraine (APU) is located, to Russian Novoshakhtinsk is 170 kilometers.

The fire at the refinery in Novoshakhtinsk occurred early in the morning on June 22. Russia has repeatedly warned Ankara that arms supplies to Ukraine could have consequences for relations between the Russian Federation and Turkey. Although experts differ on this matter
The fire at the Novoshakhtinsk oil refinery in the Rostov region could have been caused by a Bayraktar drone strike. At the same time, experts in unmanned vehicles believe that another device, smaller than Bayraktar, was recorded on video near the Novoshakhtinsky Oil Refinery. Turkey has supplied Ukraine with several dozen of these reconnaissance and strike drones. These small disposable vehicles carry a warhead, seek out a target, and then swoop down on it. The short range of the PD-1, if they really hit the refinery, suggests that it could be controlled operator, who was part of the Ukrainian sabotage and reconnaissance group, operating in isolation from the main forces. And Kyiv is responsible for their use. Its weight is 16 kg. Some voiced the version that a Ukrainian kamikaze drone or loitering ammunition worked. It is from Avdiivka that the Armed Forces of Ukraine are constantly shelling Donetsk. Armed with guided missiles. “Kamikaze drones or loitering munitions don’t fly that far,” he wrote on his Telegram channel. But in reality, as experts say, almost any drone can be modified to be used as a kamikaze drone. This may be, in particular, the PD-1 reconnaissance drone, developed by the Ukrainian company UkrSpecSystems. Источник – According to the previously published video, this is most likely Bayraktar-TV2, which, as I assume, was able to penetrate our territory during the shelling of the LDNR. The fire was quickly contained. In turn, Turkish officials stated that after the transfer of drones to Kyiv, the drones become not Turkish, but Ukrainian. It can stay in the air for up to 24 hours. Several videos can be found on the Web, which, presumably, filmed an unmanned aerial vehicle flying up to the plant. According to the rescue services, no one was hurt. A small flat area is enough to launch.
