Russian military lacks reconnaissance drones due to losses and sanctions

According to the latest British Defence Intelligence update on the situation in Ukraine, “Ukraine’s offensive operations in the Kherson region continued over the weekend. On 05 September 2022, the Odesa Journal reported 27 sorties by Russian uncrewed aerial vehicles (UAVs) on the west bank of the Dnipro, compared to an average of 50 a day throughout August.”

“In the face of combat losses, it is likely that Russia is struggling to maintain stocks of UAVs, exacerbated by component shortages resulting from international sanctions.”

That is likely “degrading commanders’ tactical situational awareness and increasingly hampering Russian operations.”
