Quote: "Naturally, both we and the enemy suffer losses in terms of equipment and personnel. Yet neither side speaks about it publicly. It is clear why!

As an exception, to explain to the public that things are not so clear-cut, I am posting the videos of two recent enemy strikes with Iskander-M [missiles], filmed by Russian reconnaissance UAVs. [At] Dolhintseve airfield (Kryvyi Rih, 3 July) and [in the] Yuzhnoie area (Odesa Oblast, 6 July), the [Ukrainian] Air Force personnel successfully conducted passive defence measures!

Thank you to everyone who helps [produce] high-quality decoys for aircraft and air defence systems. The enemy now has fewer Iskanders, but we will deliver more decoys."
