Russian attack on the airfield in Myrhorod, Poltava region, destroyed one Ukrainian aircraft. Several inoperable ones were  barely damaged by debris.

At the same time, Kremlin propaganda says that the occupiers allegedly destroyed 7 aircraft. Former spokesman for the Ukrainian Air Force Yuriy Ihnat wrote about this on Facebook.

According to him, Russian propaganda constantly publishes footage of strikes on Ukrainian equipment to boost the morale of its occupation army and demoralize Ukrainian society. However, the enemy propaganda greatly exaggerates the successes of the invaders and lies about the real consequences of their shelling.

Ihnat noted that they tried to save the plane at the airfield in Myrhorod and took certain measures to do so. At the same time, the colonel emphasized that the enemy did adjust the strikes with the help of an Orlan-10 drone.

He also explained that the occupiers have recently introduced a new tactic of using operational and tactical level UAVs. Ihnat suggested that the Russians turn off the navigation and direct the drone to the object inertially, and then turn on the GPS over the object and give out the target's coordinates. He emphasized that the Ukrainian military is taking measures to counter such intelligence.

"Over the past three months, the enemy has increased the use of Iskander-M ballistic missile systems, which, unfortunately, have become more accurate, and this was felt first of all at our operational airfields. Therefore, many measures to counter the enemy are carried out by passive defense, including misleading the enemy, using dummies, etc.", Ihnat said.

According to him, for two years, the flight crew and ground staff of operational airfields have been making titanic efforts to protect aircraft from destruction. He also added that attacks on our airfields have become more frequent as Ukrainian aviation poses a serious threat to the occupiers.

As a reminder, the commander of the Air Force, Lieutenant General Mykola Oleshchuk, said that the Russians destroyed dummies of aircraft and air defense systems with Iskanders. They targeted Dolhintsevo airfield (Kryvyi Rih) and the area of Yuzhne (Odesa region).

Earlier, it was reported that a powerful explosion occurred in Myrhorod, Poltava region, on July 5 during an air raid alert. Russian terrorists hit the city with ballistic missiles once again.
