The advisory comes in the backdrop of Russia’s intensified drone or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) attacks on civilian targets, as well as Ukraine’s energy infrastructure.The drones are said to be made in Iran, a claim the country has denied while Kremlin has been tightlipped about its origin. The drone attacks have reportedly unleashed a new kind of warfare on civilian population.It replicates the Japanes model of Kamikaze attacks. It is aaJapanese suicide bombing manoeuvre in which pilots crashed into enemy warships of the Allied forces during World War II. According to Ukranian Volodymyr Zelenskyy attacks have taken down 30% of Ukraine’s power stations leading to power outages in many cities.

The drone attacks have become a cause of global concern with the US warning of sanctions on Iran for supplying drone to Russia.United States government official Ned Price, tweeted: “Security Council was briefed on evidence of UAV transfers from Iran to Russia violating UNSCR 2231. Although Iran continues to lie, the world is aware that Russia uses Iranian drones to attack Ukrainian civilians and infrastructure.”

Europe continues to tighten sanctions against Russia. India, on its part has maintained that it is deeply concerned at the raging conflict in Ukraine and increasing civilian casualties.
