Ukrainian army’s Bayraktar drone patrolling Black Sea waters — media

A Turkish-made Bayraktar drone belonging to the Ukrainian army is patrolling the Black Sea, Ukraine’s Dumskaya web portal reported on Thursday.

"At about 8 hours in the morning (9:00 Moscow time), the drone took off from Kulbakino Air Force base [a large military aerodrome on the southeastern outskirts of the city of Nikolayev] where the 10th (Sakskaya) Ukrainian naval aviation brigade is stationed," the statement says.

According to the media outlet, the Bayraktar drone flew over Ochakovo in the Nikolayev Region to reach almost Zmeiniy Island in the Black Sea and is now patrolling Ukraine’s maritime border.

"The flight is proceeding at an altitude of over 5 km," the web portal specified.

The General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces confirmed on October 26 that the military had employed a Turkish Bayraktar combat drone in the Donbass area for the first time. Ukrainian Joint Force Commander Lieutenant-General Sergey Nayev claimed that Bayraktar strike drones always took to the skies with an ammunition load for their employment "where a reinforcement is necessary."
