Beaver, Ukraine’s Long-Range Kamikaze Drone, the Specter of Moscow’s Eve Defense




Beaver, Ukraine’s Long-Range Kamikaze Drone, the Specter of Moscow’s Eve Defense. Experts suspect Ukraine may be using drones or new kamikaze drones to target Moscow. This assumption is in line with the drone war in. Ukraine which is starting to be felt in the heart of the Russian Capital.

Open-source intelligence accounts have suggested that Ukraine’s “Beaver” drone could be behind the recent attack on. Moscow, such as the Kremlin has accused Kiev of.

Ukraine has rarely formally claimed responsibility for drone strikes over Russian territory. But Ukrainian officials sometimes use social media to refer to it.

In his speech on Sunday evening

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky did not say Kiev had controlled the new attack, but said that war was gradually returning to Russian territory, and this was an inevitable, natural and completely fair process.

Little is known about this Beaver drone

Nonetheless experts have taken what they can from the footage that has emerged to show that the drone was targeting Moscow.

The Beaver is broadly similar to the Iranian-made Shahed drone

Also known as the Geran-2 one-way attack drone, it is frequently used by Russia to target Ukraine, according to Justin Bronk, a senior researcher at the London-based think tank Royal United Services Institute.

“The Beaver appears to have a relatively small petrol engine,” He added but is believed to have a range of just over 1,000 km, or close to 620 miles.

Experts describe the Beaver as a canard-type drone

With a small forewing in front of the main wing, which gives it a very distinctive shape, to UK-based drone expert Steve Wright.

“(The plane) was flying very slowly and very steadily, with a clear emphasis on range,” he told Newsweek.

From the footage currently available

Experts say, it turns out that the drone had an internal combustion engine. For Wright, the drone was equipped with propellers and an undercarriage, featuring it being launched into the air from the runway.

Uniform drones

or at least parts of the Beaver design, have been around for years, although there is no indication that the. Beaver in the form seen over Moscow was used before the start of all-out war in. Ukraine in February 2022, analysts say.

This particular type of unmanned aerial vehicle has also not been observed in other parts of the conflict. Akshara Parakala, chief aviation analyst at the Janes defense intelligence agency, told Newsweek.

What’s less clear is how well the “Beaver” drone can overcome navigational obstacles—something Shahed understands.

The Kremlin said Sunday morning that Moscow had been attacked by 3 Ukrainian drones

One was shot down by an air defense system in west Moscow, the department said, with the other two unmanned aerial vehicles suppressed via electronic warfare.

The Russian government said the drone went out of control and crashed into a non-residential building. On the other hand, Mayor of Moscow Sergey Sobyanin said that 2 office buildings were slightly damaged in the attack on Sunday.

“Smashing into such buildings is inconsistent with Ukrainian military doctrine, and represents a significant obstacle working against UAVs,” Bronk said.

“But there will always be a deliberate psychological impact to bring war to the Russian capital and the Russian people,” he added.

In the future, like Shahed, they will likely be used in much larger groups to defeat air defenses, Wright suggested.

African Republic sees in the future for Wagner after Prgozhin





Yevgeny Prigozhin, the former head of Wagner, visited la Maison Russe, or the Russian House. Cultural facility close to the Russian embassy in the city last month. On his last trip to the Central African Republic (CAR) where he took selfies with residents and his lieutenants.

The institute, with its wide range of activities, is a clear illustration of how the mercenary organization has replaced the Russian state in the nation and a representation of the difficulties Vladimir Putin would face in regaining control.

Russia has been involved in a high-stakes race to consolidate Prigozhin’s empire on the African continent since his failed coup attempt in June and subsequent death in a plane crash outside of Moscow two months later. This empire consists of thousands of fighters, a vast array of business holdings, and numerous soft power initiatives like this one.


What comes next for the group is unknown as the Kremlin tries to contain Wagner’s extensive business network. However, Bangui is starting to show glimpses of what the future might hold for the CAR, one of the organization’s earliest client states and its laboratory on the continent. Here, it appears that Russia is maintaining its influence while consolidating Wagner’s operations. It appears that Moscow wants to convey the message that everything will continue as normal.

The dominance of Russia is evident everywhere. Locals consume Wa-Na-Wa vodka and Africa Ti L’Or beer in roadside bars owned by a company connected to Wagner. Fighter jets donated by Russia are currently flying missions overhead.

A Russian tricolor flag flutters above the cultural center. A carousel with an onion dome on top swings in the courtyard outside.

“The Maison Russe is the nerve center of all of Wagner’s activities in the Central African Republic,” Nathalia Dukhan, a senior investigator at The Sentry, a US NGO that has tracked Wagner around the nation, stated.

Asians make up about a quarter of the population of Duluth, according to the US Census Bureau.

Putin and Kim Jong Un are close, analyst: Warning to their rivals




Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s close relationship is seen as a warning to their rivals, analysts say. Calling each other “comrade”, they toasted after Putin took Kim on a tour of Russia’s most modern space launch facility and held talks with the defense minister, Wednesday, September 13, 2023.
Both countries have an interest in showing that, despite their geopolitical isolation, they have partners they can talk to. And both are seeking to weaken US-led sanctions and pressure campaigns, against Russia over the war in Ukraine and against North Korea for its nuclear weapons and missile programs.

Putin and Kim would both benefit from transactional bargaining

but they would also gain geopolitically by giving the impression that the two nuclear-armed states are working together militarily and sending a warning about the potential consequences for America and its partners who support Ukraine ,” said Duyeon Kim, of the Center for a New American Security.
“Kim also signaled to Washington, Seoul and Tokyo that Russia supports him.”
Both Russia and North Korea have denied US accusations that they plan to provide each other with weapons, but both leaders have pledged to deepen defense cooperation, and Putin has If they just wanted a secret arms deal, the two leaders wouldn’t need to meet in person, said Leif-Eric Easley, a professor at Ewha University in Seoul.Korea,” he said.

The fact that North Korea openly defies UN Security Council resolutions shows key international institutions have been paralyze, said Andrei Lankov, a Korea expert at Kookmin University in Seoul.
The summit is an indicator that Security Council resolutions on North Korea have failed, as have all efforts to stop North Korea or punish the country for having a nuclear program, he said ignore it,” Lankov said.

Lankov also said that Russia would likely not provide North Korea with advanced technology that could eventually spiral out of control.

But the “excessive” gesture in defense cooperation allowed them to send a strong message to South Korea not to directly provide military aid to Ukraine, he said.

Despite pressure from Kyiv and Washington, South Korea provided only non-lethal aid to Ukraine, sold large quantities of arms to neighboring Poland, and provided artillery shells to the United States to replenish dwindling arms reserves, while insisting that it had no plans provide lethal assistance. .

If Russia, North Korea, and China feel threatened, it makes sense that they would seek to support each other through partnerships or even alliances against the United States. But each country has a limited history of making such ties successful, said Mason Richey, a professor at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies in Seoul.

“It’s hard for me to imagine that Xi Jinping, Kim Jong Un and Vladimir Putin can trust each other enough to form an alliance together in the long term,” he said.
