Ohe Iranian kamikaze drones used in the latest attacks on Ukrainian cities are packed with European components, according to a secret document sent by Kyiv to its Western allies – in which it calls for long-range missiles to attack production sites in Russia, in Iran and Syria.
In a 47-page document presented by the Ukrainian government to G7 governments in August, and now revealed by The Guardian, it is stated that there were more than 600 attacks on cities using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) containing Western technology in the three months previous ones.
According to the report, 52 electrical components manufactured by Western companies were found in the Shahed-131 drone and 57 in the Shahed-136 model.
Five European companies, including a Polish subsidiary of a British multinational, are identified as original manufacturers of the identified components.
“Among the manufacturers are companies based in the countries of the sanctions coalition: the United States, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Germany, Canada, Japan and Poland”, it can be read.
The investigation also reveals that high demand forced Iran to expand production.
