‘Dronephobia’ video mocks Russian terror of Ukraine drone attacks
It’s frequently been said war is hell, and now dark mockery is being thrown into its merciless mix. Evidence of that came with a video uploaded by Ukraine drone unit Aerorozvidka illustrating what it calls the “dronephobia” affliction of an apparent Russian target on the ground melting down at the approach of a hostile UAV.
It’s impossible to know whether the footage uploaded Monday was staged as communications content, intended as a pointed joke, or is actual footage of someone madly zigzagging about to dodge munitions expected to be dropped by the UAV overhead capturing the entire scene. The meaning of the video, however, is evident in all of those cases. In featuring someone afflicted by what it calls dronephobia, Aerorozvidka is offering a jeering reminder of just how effectively Ukraine drones – military, homemade, and store bought alike – have battered the flesh and gotten into minds of invading Russian forces.
