Why the Air Force has started shooting down Russian planes more often: Ihnat named the reason

Now the occupiers no longer know how to use their aviation

The Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine has received additional tools that have allowed it to shoot down enemy aircraft more often. The loss of aircraft was a serious psychological blow to Russian military pilots.

This was stated by Yurii Ihnat, a spokesman for the Ukrainian Air Force, during a telethon on March 2. He noted that the occupiers' planes are being destroyed on both the southern and eastern directions.

"We have means that work virtually every day, the occupants already realize that a surprise may await them in one direction or another. The work is carried out almost every day, and the enemy does not feel as free as it was before," said the spokesman.

Ihnat also said that for six days in a row, the Ukrainian military have not recorded any flights of enemy A-50 aircraft over the Sea of Azov.

"Su-34 and Su-35 cannot feel free anymore. The guided bomb has a limited range. To reach further, you need to fly closer. Flying closer could be the end. The pilots and their commanders are well aware of this and act more cautiously. This allows our troops to catch their breath," Ihnat said.

He added that the absence of A-50s in the sky is a good and pleasant fact. Currently, the occupiers do not know how to continue using their aircraft.

As reported by OBOZ.UA:

– British intelligence said that after the loss of another A-50, Russia has probably stopped using them until internal investigations reveal the reasons for the ineffective protection and ways to reduce the threat.

– On March 1, the Ukrainian Air Force downed another Russian Su-34. Ukrainian partisans discovered the crash site near Mariupol. The occupiers have already lost 38 such aircraft in the war against Ukraine.

– On February 28, Yurii Ihnat said that enemy pilots no longer risk approaching Ukraine's borders.
