Three major things happened today, which may lead to the Ukrainian army being destroyed by Iranian-made combat drones in the near future.
War logic is inexorable & murderous. It bills the authors & accomplices strictly.
Panic in RF – endless mobilization, missile defense in Moscow, trenches 1000 km away, bomb shelters preparation.
Explosive night in Iran – drone & missile production, oil refineries.
🇺🇦 did warn you

Mykhailo Podolyak, adviser to Volodymyr Zelenskyy made a tweet implying that Ukraine was involved in the attack on the ammunition manufacturing plant and an oil refinery in Iran yesterday.
توئیت مشاور زلنسکی که تلویحا شراکت کییف در اقدام علیه #ایران را اعلام کرده، با توجه به بیان ادعاهای مشابه از سوی مراجع نیمهرسمی #اسرائیل نه تنها از راهبرد مشترک آنها در تهدید امنیت ایران خبر میدهد بلکه در صورت عدم برائت رسمی دولت #اوکراین، تبعات سنگینی برایشان در پی خواهد داشت.

Iran’s Supreme National Security Council called the Ukrainian foreign ministry and asked them to clarify the tweet. The Ukrainians responded by saying that clarification was not necessary. As a result, Iran’s Supreme National Security Council made this statement:
“The tweet of Zelenskyy’s advisor, which implied the participation of Kyiv in action against Iran, according to the expression of similar claims by the semi-official authorities of Israel, not only informs about their joint strategy in threatening the security of Iran, but also in the case of the lack of official denial by the government of Ukraine it will have heavy consequences for them.”
According to Iranian OSINT Telegram and Twitter accounts the IRIAF has mobilized 280 technicians and engineers starting next Sunday and called them to the Kaman 22 production plant. The Kaman 22 is an Iranian reverse-engineered version of the General Atomics MQ-9 Reaper. It has been used very successfully against ISIL in Syria and Iraq. It has laser-guided anti-personnel and anti-materiel munitions. The anti-materiel munitions are designed and tested to penetrate modern third-generation composite armour and reinforced bunkers, meaning that it can easily destroy all modern tanks.
If Ukraine doesn’t deny involvement in the attacks in Iran before next Sunday we could see the Kaman 22 being used in Ukraine.
