He said this on the Espreso TV channel.

"In reality, Ukraine has many opportunities. We have access to more interesting markets where we can purchase components. The Russians have proven to be much more resourceful; by accessing Iranian facilities, they continue to circumvent sanctions. So, they also have opportunities to obtain high-tech items. However, it should be noted that most Russian weapons are overrated. For example, the aeroballistic missile 'Kinzhal' does not meet its tactical and technical characteristics," noted Khrapchynskyi.

According to the Deputy CEO of MilTech, Russians possess numerous electronic warfare systems, but they are not effective against FPV drones.

"Russia actively developed electronic warfare systems, creating large stations on chassis and KamAZ trucks. However, this is impractical given the challenges that currently exist. That is, against FPV drones, drone swarms, and strike drones, Russian stations are not effective. What is needed are mobile operational-tactical solutions. Small devices that can be placed on armor or next to trenches, defending the area from drone strikes. We see how our FPV drones effectively destroy enemy EW stations," added Khrapchynskyi.

  • On November 13, 2023, the Ukrainian Defense Forces destroyed the Russian mobile electronic warfare system RB-636 Svet-KU.
  • On November 30, it became known that Ukrainian companies produce about 50,000 FPV drones a month, which is only 10-15% of the army's needs. At the same time, Russians produce six times more "birds"
