Russian civil patrols against drone attacks have a shortage of qualified personnel

British intelligence pointed out on Sunday that the formation of civilian patrols in Russian border regions to combat drone infiltration means that Russian forces lack the qualified personnel and adequate resources to combat these attacks.

“The use of volunteers most likely indicates a shortage of trained security personnel in Russia,” British intelligence said in its daily report.

Specifically, he argues that it has been proven “historically” that it is “difficult” to destroy drones with handguns, since the destruction of quadcopter drones requires anti-aircraft systems with surveillance capabilities as well as kinetic and electronic means.

The United Kingdom is referring to the formation of volunteer patrols by the government of Pskov Oblast near the border with Estonia to prevent drone attacks on the Kresti air base. “Up to 800 citizens have reportedly joined the patrols,” British intelligence said.

London acknowledges that “the creation of these volunteer patrols will likely serve as a deterrent and will serve to some extent to protect the base from quadcopter drones piloted from close to the base.”

On August 29, a drone strike caused damage to two IL-76 transport aircraft. However, London noted that given the limited range of the quadcopters, it was highly likely that the attacks were launched from Russian territory.
