Russia confirms use of new laser weapons in Ukraine

Russia's Deputy Prime Minister Yury Borisov announced on Wednesday in Moscow that the Russian army started using a new generation of powerful laser weapons in Ukraine.

Borisov said the prototypes of the new laser system Zadira, capable of burning a drone five kilometers away in five seconds, are already used by the Russian troops in Ukraine. "The Peresvet laser weapons can blind satellites up to 1,500 km above Earth", he explained.

According to a source from the United States Defense Department from last week, Russia has used hypersonic weapons between 10 and 12 times since the start of its military operation in Ukraine.
