The Air Force explains how Ukraine learns about Russian aviation take-offs
Ukraine learns about Russian strategic aircraft taking off from distant airfields from its Western allies. The Ukrainian military effectively uses this information to protect its people.
Yuriy Ihnat, spokesperson for the Air Force of Ukraine, said this during a nationwide telethon. According to him, Ukraine's partners constantly support our country.
"The information that comes in about the take-off of strategic aircraft from long-range airfields, long-range aviation and other information is provided to us by our partners. Of course, this is extremely useful for us, and all this is used for the country's defence," Ihnat explained.
At the same time, there is also a wide range of radar equipment inside the country, which is in service with the Radio Technical Troops.
"They are not mentioned much, but together with the Air Defense Missile Forces, Air Force aviation and other components, the Radio Technical Forces are the eyes of the Air Force, and they monitor the air situation inside and outside the country 24/7," the Air Force spokesman said.
He added that the occupiers usually attack Ukraine from two directions: from the Shaykivka airfield in the north of the Kaluga region, as well as from the southern regions, in particular, from the Mozdok airfield.
He added that the range of the Russian X-22 missile is 600 km, and therefore it is impossible to reach the southern regions of Ukraine from the north.
It should be noted that from 21 to 27 June, the Russian invaders increased the number of attacks on the territory of Ukraine, using missiles and combat drones. Moscow is also issuing orders to increase the intensity of attacks along the entire frontline.
According to Podoliak, a representative of the President's Office, Russia's attacks have turned into the agony of a state that has lost its legitimacy in the international political field. Moscow has demonstratively nullified international law and international institutions.
Earlier, OBOZREVATEL reported that the day before, the occupiers fired missiles at Kramatorsk, one of which hit a pizzeria in the city centre. As a result, 11 people died, including two twin girls.
