Ukraine is offering Russian soldiers detailed instructions on how to surrender to its drones.

KYIV, Ukraine – Tens of thousands of drones have been used across Ukraine to destroy enemies, spy on their formations and guide bombs to their targets. But this month, the Ukrainian military began a program that uses drones in a more unusual role: to guide Russian soldiers who want to surrender.

The show began in late November, when the Ukrainian military released footage of a Russian soldier throwing a weapon on the ground, raising his hand and nervously following the path outlined by a drone overhead. he went to soldiers from the 54th corps of the Ukrainian army. Mechanized brigade.

A few weeks later, the General Staff of Ukraine released a video tutorial explaining how Russian soldiers could surrender to a Ukrainian drone, and it is now part of an extensive Ukrainian effort to convince the Russian troops to surrender. Russian soldiers surrender. The program, called “I want to live,” including a telephone hotline, a website and a Telegram channel, all dedicated to communicating with Russian soldiers and their families.

And if nothing else, it could further erode Russia’s morale on the battlefield.
