Ukraine faces a new threat from the Russian military – the dropping of winged, guided aerial bombs from aircraft lurking beyond the reach of Ukraine’s air defenses, Ukrainian Air Force Command spokesperson Yuriy Ihnat said on Ukrainian national television on March 30.
He said that enemy aircraft drop guided air bombs without entering the territory covered by Ukraine’s air defense systems.
This is a new tactic of Russian invaders that needs to be fought against, but for that,Ukraine needs Western multirole jet fighters, Ihnat added.
“This is a new threat that has emerged before us... 500 kilogram bombs flying dozens of kilometers...” he said.
“Something needs to be done about this. Not only with air defense systems that we are waiting for, but still to increase pressure and work with Western partners to create an aviation coalition and provide Ukraine with fighter jets.”
Ten Russian Su-35 fighters launched 11 guided air bombs and one Kh-31P missile on Sumy Oblast on March 24.
During the night of March 28, Russian armed forces also dropped an air bomb on Bilopillia in Sumy Oblast.
