Details: Ihnat draws attention to the fact that the aggressors are sparing their aircraft and helicopters, and abstain from entering the airspace controlled by the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Meanwhile, Ukrainian Air Force aircraft conducted dozens of air sorties during the day. Under cover of fighter jets, strike groups carried out about ten missile and bomb strikes at concentrations of aggressor troops, ammunition depots and manpower.
