Since February of this year, the Ukrainian military has already shot down 15 Russian military aircraft. Seven of them were shot down in the last week alone, states the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

"This week alone, we managed to shoot down seven Russian military aircraft. The very ones that drop these bombs and kill. Since the beginning of February, Russia has lost 15 military aircraft. This is the proper dynamics of their losses," the Head of State said.

According to Zelenskyy, the more opportunities the Ukrainian military has to shoot down enemy aircraft and destroy Russian logistics in the occupied territories, the more Ukrainian lives will be saved.

"We can shoot down more Russian military aircraft and destroy even more Russian logistics in our occupied territory. The only question is the appropriate weapons that our partners have and can be transferred to Ukraine," he added.

Ukrainian Armed Forces destroy enemy aircraft

Since February, the Ukrainian military has been destroying enemy combat aircraft almost every day. Mostly these are Su-34 and Su-35 aircraft, but in February, the Russians also lost an A-50 reconnaissance aircraft flying over the Sea of Azov.

One of the Russian Su-34s was downed by the Ukrainian military yesterday in the eastern direction. After that, Russian aircraft stopped flying into the Ukrainian sky for several hours.

However, according to Illia Yevlash, the head of the press service of the Khortytsia Joint Operation Center, even after the destruction of so many planes, the Russians do not stop using aircraft to strike the front. Although they are changing their tactics.
