The war in Ukraine – Budanov assessed whether drones could replace ground troops and pointed to the main goal of Russia


The head of the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine Kirill Budanov said that drones are not capable of fully replacing ground troops. According to Ego, UAVs can only be used to inflict damage on the enemy.

At the same time, the soldier remains an important component of combat operations. Budanov stated this in an interview with CBC News.

According to him, unmanned systems will never replace ground troops. The head of the GUR explained that the UAV can only cause losses to the enemy, but the soldier continues to play an important role in the course of hostilities.

“Drones will never replace ground troops. This is just a way to support them. With the help of a drone, you can inflict damage on the enemy. But until, as in the Middle Ages, a soldier comes and raises the flag, nothing will change,” Budanov explained.

Budanov also said that the leadership of the aggressor country of the Russian Federation would very much like to freeze the war and leave the situation as it is at this stage. The head of the GUR emphasized that the Kremlin wants Ukraine to recognize the territory they seized as Russian. At the same time, he added that this will never happen.

Let us remind you that the head of the military intelligence of Ukraine, Major General Kirill Budanov, hinted that replacing the commander-in-chief of the Ukrainian Armed Forces with President Volodymyr Zelensky, in his opinion, was the right decision. He also commented on rumors about differences of opinion between Valery Zaluzhny and the head of state.

Earlier it was reported that Budanov was once a member of the elite Ukrainian unit that was prepared by the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). The scout was famous for his operations behind enemy lines, including on the territory of the temporarily occupied Crimea.

As OBOZ.UA reported, Kirill Budanov, the head of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, said that during the full-scale war, Ukrainian special forces were already on the territory of Crimea, in particular, they conducted an operation on the peninsula in 2023. He also announced “new surprises” to the occupiers and hinted at the fate of the Crimean bridge.
