Russia: Drone operator training centre opens in Tula region

Russian Federation, Tula region
January 11, 2023 at 15:40 GMT +00:00 · Published

The first graduation ceremony took place at an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) operator training centre in the Tula region.

The footage, taken on December 28- 29, shows graduates launching drones and demonstrating drone assembly skills, as well as the presention of certificates.

The area's first UAV operator training centre was established by Tula region’s Governor Alexei Dyumin.

Graduates will be involved in the work of units of the Russian Ministry of Defence and other security agencies involved in the conflict with Ukraine.

Classes at the centre are led by instructors with combat experience and teachers from Tula State University.

Earlier, the centre hosted the first scientific and practical conference, with the participation of developers of different types of UAVs and software, as well as employees of the defence industry and other sectors.

Following the conference, companies began to produce prototype batches of the UAVs presented at the conference.

Moscow launched a military offensive in Ukraine in late February after recognising the independence of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics (DPR and LPR), claiming that Kiev had failed to guarantee their special status under the 2014 Minsk Agreements, and urging Ukraine to declare itself officially neutral and give assurances that it would never join NATO.

Kiev denounced the Russian action as an invasion. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky imposed martial law throughout the country, announcing a general mobilisation, while the EU and US imposed several rounds of sanctions on Moscow.
