Russia can use almost 300 warplanes against Ukraine – war in Ukraine – Vadym Skibytsky interview

According to Ukrainian intelligence, the aggressor country of Russia now has almost 300 combat aircraft. The enemy can use all these sides against us.

This was said in an interview with “Intefax-Ukraine” by the Deputy Chief of the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, Major General Vadym Skibytskyi. “A lot,” he answered when asked how many combat aircraft the Russians now have.

According to Skibytskyi, the F-16 fighter jets, which Ukraine should soon receive, can affect the situation. These warplanes are one of the means that can destroy enemy aviation, in particular, planes that the enemy uses for bomb attacks.

The deputy head of the State Security Service noted that the Russian Federation has set itself the task of destroying both our aviation and infrastructure. The enemy does not stop trying to destroy Ukrainian airfields, which he regularly strikes with various types of weapons.

“For three days in a row, the enemy bombed the Kanatovo airfield (near Kropyvnytskyi – Ed.), trying to hit it with ballistic missiles. And this is precisely the enemy’s approach to prevent us from deploying aircraft there. They are very afraid that powerful Western equipment will come to Ukraine. And we are already clearly confident and know that Western models of weapons are much better and have an advantage over Russian and Soviet weapons. My dears. These are accuracy, efficiency, and other parameters,” Skibytsky emphasized.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, at the meeting of the Staff of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of Ukraine on February 22, there was a separate special report on the preparation of our state for the transition to the F-16. There are “positive details”, said President Volodymyr Zelensky.

He also showed footage of Ukrainian pilots training on the F-16. Garant noted that all Ukrainians are waiting for the day when the first Ukrainian F-16s will appear in our skies.
