Arestovich on Putin’s visit to Iran
Aleksey Arestovich, the adviser to the head of the President’s Office, spoke about the reasons for the visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin to Iran.
He expressed his opinion in a conversation with Russian human rights activist Mark Feygin.
“Iran, unlike Putin’s” mother Russia “, managed to create military production, up to satellites. Shipbuilding, tank building, aircraft building. This considering that they have been under sanctions for more than 20 years. And they can supply UAVs, which the Putin regime was unsuccessful in producing and now has huge problems on the battlefield,” Arestovich said.
He recalled that recently in military chats and forums, “cried” how Russia missed the issue of providing drones.
“It seems to have reached such a level that Vladimir Vladimirovich personally went to provide these drones. Can you imagine what Putin’s Russia has come to. The president of a huge country with unlimited industrial potential is going to get some UAVs, the models produced by a Chinese factory in the village,” the adviser said, head of the Office of the President.
“His military leaders told him that the ability to mass with artillery, and this is the main key to the success of the Russian troops, has become suspended in the air, because the Himars are taking out warehouses and supplies. The effectiveness of counter-battery fire is declining because the radars have entered. Each platoon has two drones. Respectively the accuracy of reconnaissance and guidance is very high,” he stressed.
According to him, the problem of Russian Orlan UAVs is their number.
“There are a lot of them, they are riveted on the knee. And no matter how you shoot them down, they still hang, conduct reconnaissance and allow you to direct artillery,” Arestovich said.
