The video also shows the importance of drones. The unmanned aircraft can be used for reconnaissance purposes, for aerial attacks, and, as shown in this video, for documentation of what might well be war crimes.

The drone footage is about one minute long and is one of the few aerial videos we have seen showing the devastation that resulted from the Russian invasion.

Earlier this week, 140 DJI Mini drones were hand-delivered to the Ukrainian military by three Finnish friends.
