Now a 15-year-old boy is a "Hero of Ukraine"

A 15-year-old Ukrainian civilian used his drone to help the Ukrainian forces locate and destroy one of Russia's most enormous convoys in the early days of the war. He has been hailed as a "real hero of Ukraine." His Name is Andrii Pokrasa. He lives on the outskirts of Kyiv. The Ukrainian military directly approached him to locate the convoy trundling along the E40 highway between Kyiv and Zhytomyr.

The Ukrainian Army knew that he had purchased mini-drones last year. Hence, Pokrasa duly took his drone into a nearby field in darkness. He obtained photos and the G.P.S. coordinates from the Russian convoy. His father had forwarded this to the Ukrainian military by using social media. Due to this achievement of Andrii Pokrasa, he is now known as "the real hero of Ukraine."
