During the 2 years of the Russian Federation's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the Air Force destroyed almost 2,000 different types of missiles, reveals the Commander of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Mykola Oleshchuk.

"It is not easy to record the statistics of our "military routine" because it is updated almost every hour. It is updated with Russian A-50s and Su aircraft, Iranian "Shaheds" and "invincible missiles", enemy control centers, cruisers, submarines, and entire fleet headquarters...", Oleshchuk explained.

However, he said that over the past 730 days, the Air Force has conducted dozens of brilliant operations.

In total, in cooperation with the Ukrainian Defense Forces, they destroyed:

  • 1905 missiles of various types. Among them:
  • 43 - ballistic missiles,
  • 25 - aerial ballistic missiles - X-47M2 "Kinzhal";
  • 4,844 attack drones and 7,660 operational and tactical UAVs.
  • 340 - airplanes.
  • 325 - helicopters.

"For 730 days, the Russians have been "destroying" our Air Force in their propaganda, and meanwhile, Ukrainian pilots have already made more than 18800 sorties in the face of powerful enemy opposition. Of these, 7,800 were for fire control, and 8,900 were for fighter air cover," the commander emphasized.
