Careless Sharing of Coordinates Leads to HIMARS Attack

Russian blogger Romanov revealed that Sudoplatov drone operators claimed to have been targeted due to the group’s head sharing coordinates on their positions via a bot for training purposes.

The HIMARS strike reportedly caused fatalities among the drone operators, highlighting the risks associated with sharing sensitive information.

Sudoplatov’s management is allegedly attempting to downplay the situation in the aftermath of the attack.
