Ex-colonel Andriy Kulchytskyi, at the Kyiv Scientific Research Institute of Forensic Expertise, showed us a motor of an Iranian Shahed-M drone engraved with English writing.

He said he suspected some of the engines used to power the drone were made in England — but the manufacturer would not have known they could end up in a war zone.

Andriy said: “We thought the Shahed 131 engines were British, at the very beginning, but we haven’t made it official. England is a good friend.”

Earlier investigations have suggested the engines were reverse-engineered in Iran from a British part.

Former Armed Forces Minister Mark Francois said: “That these engines came from Britain is still unconfirmed but, if true, that’s a deeply worrying development.

“We have to assume our own intelligence agencies are investigating this, with a view to intervening rapidly, if required.”

Irish parts, US and Swiss computer chips, Sony optics on a spy drone and antennas made in Canada have also been found by the Kyiv lab.
