"The antiaircraft forces covering the facility and the duty watch were engaged to repel the attack, but it was quite difficult to destroy such small aerial vehicles as drones. The radar reconnaissance assets were unable to detect UAVs.

"The area, where the unmanned aerial vehicles took off and were operated from, was presumably on the territory controlled by the Ukrainian military in the village of Hrodivka.
