The most massive drone attack on Kyiv was repelled by aviation: new details

Ukraine used aviation to repel drone attacks

On the night of May 28, Russian troops carried out the most massive attack with Iranian kamikaze drones, with over 40 Shahed 136 sent by the occupiers to Kyiv alone. In total, the enemy attacked Ukraine with 54 strike drones, 52 of which were shot down by air defense forces.

To repel the night attack, in addition to air defense means, Ukraine used fighter jets. This was told by the speaker of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Yuri Ignat in the air of the telethon.

According to him, to protect the skies over Ukraine during the night attack the AFU used aviation. It was used, in particular, in areas with less concentration of air defenses.

"In one place air defense works, in another - mobile groups. In those areas where there is less concentration of air defenses, fighter jets can work. They can quickly take off from airfields, react quickly and try to destroy UAVs," Ignat said.

The AFU spokesman added that the Soviet MiG-29 and Su-25 are not able to guarantee 100% protection. But Ukrainian pilots do everything possible and impossible to neutralize the threat as much as possible.

At the same time, Ignat stressed, Western F-16 fighters are much more effective in shooting down aerial targets

"The aviation that we used to shoot down, in particular UAVs, is not as effective as we would like it to be. If we had an F-16, certainly this aircraft with its powerful radar and armament could accomplish 100 percent of its tasks in the sky," he summarized.

We would like to remind you that on the night of February 28, Russian troops attacked Ukraine with cockamamie drones, and F-16s were operating in Kyiv and the regions.

The largest number of Iranian drones was directed by the enemy to Kyiv, with victims and casualties in the capital as a result of the fall of the drones. Overall, the Air defense forces shot down 52 drones from 54 launched by the Russian Armed Forces, of which about 40 were in the airspace of the capital.
