RUSSIA state television presenter Olga Skabeyeva claimed that they shot down a thousand Bayraktar TB2s during the occupation in Ukraine. These strange words of the Russian presenter became the subject of ridicule on social media.
The mutual information war that started after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine continues.
While very interesting claims are made from both sides from time to time; the kind that makes you say give up last time.
Rossiya 1 television, which started the 3rd World War with its broadcasts, hit London, threatened Europe with nuclear destruction and showed President Erdogan as one of the “leaders who want war in Ukraine”, has signed off on a new weirdness.
“We dropped a thousand Bayraktar”
Experienced presenter of Russian state television Rossiya 1, Olga Skabeyeva, claimed that they shot down 1,000 Bayraktar TB2s during the occupation in Ukraine.
How many Bayraktar TB2s are in the inventory?
However, even in the inventory of Turkey, which is the manufacturer of Bayraktar TB2 S/UAVs, there are not that many Bayraktars.
According to the information in open sources; There are 128 Bayraktar TB2s in the inventory. 110 of them are in the TAF and 12 in the Gendarmerie; 6 of them appear in the General Directorate of Security.
How many Bayraktar TB2 were sold to Ukraine?
Again, according to the information in open sources; It is thought that Ukraine has at most 15 Bayraktar TB2s.
Because, Valerii Zaluzhnyi, the Chief of General Staff of Ukraine, who made a statement in the past months, said that there are 12 Bayraktar TB2 SİHAs in the inventory of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. Only one of them was shot down by the Russian army during the occupation. However, with some civil campaigns launched globally, donations were collected from TB2s (BAYKAR had donated 3 UAVs) and delivered to Ukraine.
Social media reaction
Here are some of those reactions;
I wonder if the Russians who watched this news believed it?
Russia can even drop unmanufactured TB2s.
What if these Ukrainians got TB2 from BİM or something?
Olga is so bored, instead of waving ziyaaaaa, it is necessary to say waving olgaaaaa.
It is 100 thousand, they cannot stop even if it is a thousand.
Too much vodka is not good, I think it hit.
