Quote from Ihnat: "For almost four months now, the enemy has not flown into our airspace – he has changed his tactics. They realised they are suffering serious losses on the territory of our state. No matter what they say in their propaganda stories, there are air defence systems in Ukraine."
Details: Ihnat said that Ukraine’s defences have been boosted with portable anti-aircraft missile systems of various types, both of Soviet and foreign production. These anti-aircraft defence systems have a range of 4.5-7 kilometres. According to him, Russia felt a threat to its aviation and decided not to fly into the territory controlled by Ukraine’s air defence.
He added that the Russian Federation continues to use drones that can fly deep into Ukraine’s territory for reconnaissance.
