“I was scared. But I didn’t want Russian troops to occupy my city,” 15-year-old Andrey Pokrassa told the portal. The Ukrainian military contacted them because they needed accurate GPS data for their artillery. Fearing the neighbors that the drone would be the target of Russian attacks, Pokrassa, along with his father, began their reconnaissance mission after dark from a nearby area.
