The Ukrainian military apparently shot down two more enemy aircraft that attacked the front line with guided aerial bombs. Anti-aircraft guided missiles were fired at Russian Su-34 and Su-35, states the Commander of the Air Force of Ukraine Mykola Oleshchuk.

"We have just fired anti-aircraft guided missiles at two enemy Su-34 and Su-35 aircraft. We are waiting for confirmation of the desired result," Oleshchuk wrote on his Telegram channel.

He noted that the enemy continues to attack in the eastern direction using guided bombs from tactical aircraft, but it is becoming increasingly difficult for the occupiers to fly.

"But we need more systems, more weapons to clear our skies," added the Air Force commander.
