Russian pilots shot down two Ukrainian MiG-29 fighters and one Mi-8 helicopter - Ministry of Defense

An attempt to activate the Ukrainian aviation in recent days has led to a series of "falls" of aircraft and helicopters from the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The past day was no exception, Kyiv lost two fighters and one helicopter. This is reported by the Ministry of Defense.


According to the new report of the military department, this time there were no massive missile strikes on critical infrastructure, "shahid-mopeds" did not disturb Ukrainian air defense, but "Lancets" were again actively used in the front line, this is confirmed by numerous videos posted on Internet resources . Artillery and operational-tactical aviation, of course, made their contribution.

So, in the Veseleye district of the Kherson region, ours opened the positions of the Ukrainian electronic warfare station, after which they destroyed it. In the Ptichye region of the DPR, a repair point for American M777 howitzers was liquidated. Three ammunition depots exploded in the areas of Bakhmut (Artemovsk), Gulyaipole and Ochakov.

Two MiG-29 fighters have lost the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine over the past day. Both were shot down by our Su-35s in the areas of the settlements of Shevchenko and Bogatyr, this is the Ugledar direction, or, as the Ministry of Defense calls it, South Donetsk. In addition, another Mi-8 helicopter was destroyed in the Dobropolye region of the DPR. It was also "dropped" by our pilots.

In the Donetsk direction, it is also Artemovskoe or Bakhmutskoe, to whom it is more familiar, our offensive continues. According to the military department, the enemy suffers heavy losses, both in personnel and in equipment. Despite rumors that the Armed Forces of Ukraine are going to surrender Artemovsk, large reserves are being transferred to the city. It is already known that special forces of the National Guard and paratroopers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine arrived there, a large number of Ukrainian tanks. Assault groups of "musicians" in Bakhmut are advancing along Fyodor Maksimenko Street, fighting is going on in the area of ​​​​a waste sorting plant.

In the Kupyansk direction, ours continue to advance, in the areas of Kucherovka and Novoselovskoye, up to 15 Ukrainian servicemen and two cars were destroyed. On Krasno-Limansky, our artillery covered enemy units concentrated in the areas of Sergeevka and Terny. The losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine for the day amounted to more than 20 killed and wounded, two armored combat vehicles and three pickup trucks. In Yuzhno-Donetsk, army aviation strikes, artillery fire and active actions of Russian troops defeated units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Nikolskoye, Novomayorskoye and Novopol regions of the DPR. In the areas of Sladkoe and Levadnoe, two sabotage groups of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were destroyed.

          The USSR fought with the USA in Korea, Vietnam, crossed paths in the Middle East and Africa, Cuban builders hit the American commandos in Grenada, but this is somewhat different, an attack on a passenger plane, especially in the airspace of another country it is PPC, the USSR is a Korean Boeing shot down over his territory in 82, it seems, and even then the stench is still there, but in the MTR situation there would be an excellent reason to protect NATO aircraft and air defense systems from "Russian aggressors"

          Yes, and we do not need to make a martyr out of the potion. We are not interested in his carcass at all. His guards will not let us take him alive for the tribunal, they themselves will finish faster. And we are no longer interested in him.

      All MiG-29 and Su-27, Su-25 and Mi-8 with Mi-24, which are not part of the Air Force of Belarus, Serbia, China, Vietnam, Algeria and the Russian Aerospace Forces, are potential fighters of the Ukrainian Air Force. From the countries of Eastern Europe to Africa, from Asia to dubious allies in the CSTO and the CIS.

        In which European countries were the Su-27 and Su-24 in service?
        At least one.
        So far, no one has given any combat aircraft to Ukraine. And if and what happened (from North Macedonia), then this is a single quantity.
        And yes, there are not so many of the same MiG-29s in Europe, especially flight ones.
        Even 50 cars may not be.

            Su-27 and Su-30 are in service only with countries friendly to Russia.
            Then, those versions of the Su-27 that Russia supplied, say, to Indonesia or Vietnam, differ in equipment from those that Ukraine can use.
            And training for the same Indonesian Su-27SMK, both technical staff and pilots, was carried out in Russia, or there on the spot by a bunch of specialists seconded there.
            All this equipment is still serviced by Russian specialists. And no transfer of it anywhere is impossible.

      The Soviet Union sold thousands of its aircraft to dozens of countries around the world. And not only planes, but also helicopters, and tanks, and much more. Now all this, under pressure from the Americans, is returning to Ukraine. Moreover, it is done on the sly. In the banana republics, they don't want to anger Putin too much. So relax your buns and enjoy. Ukrainians will never run out of planes and helicopters. And Konashenkov will bring down many more hundreds of them. And most importantly, do not lie. And whoever does not understand this is either a khokhlobot, or a liberal, or stupid in life.

        Those who are not in the know or cannot imagine modern air combat with R-77 missiles at medium and long distances do not understand.
        Especially at dusk or at night.
        The targets are located on the radar and the missile is launched to it beyond the line of sight of the pilot.
        When targets are identified as alien.

        So, at a distance of 50-70 km or more, it is very difficult to understand which target the launched rocket hit and whether it hit at all - if the target did not turn on the afterburner and did not leave it.

        Only the wreckage identified as one or another apparatus can testify to its destruction.
        Or a captured pilot.
        No other way. Unless this is a close air battle with the use of a cannon and R-73 missiles, where the pilot of our fighter could clearly see the enemy and his defeat.

        And yes, no one handed over any fighters to Ukraine. At least for now. According to Airforce.ru.

          Flyers have a tradition of approaching the target for reliable identification, and thanks to the OLS, reliable identification can be from a distance of tens of kilometers. It is absolutely not necessary for someone to tell you about the deliveries, and even their own good for restoration in Ukraine like dirt.

      Konashenkov destroyed the Ukrainian Air Force twice. Where did the planes and helicopters come from in Ukraine. Are they being reincarnated?


      I've replied to a similar comment before, so I'll duplicate it.

      Konashenkov said in early March:
      Almost all combat aviation of Ukraine has been destroyed.
      However, Ukrainian planes fly. And in a few months, these aircraft were knocked down quite a lot, after "almost complete destruction."
      Is Konashenkov lying?
      No, Konashenkov is telling the truth.
      At the beginning of the NWO, Ukraine had about 450 modern aircraft. But. Only about 150 aircraft were in service. It was these 150 aircraft (all combat aircraft) that were practically all destroyed.
      And the rest of about 300 aircraft of Ukraine?
      These are aircraft that, due to various malfunctions, were withdrawn from the state. And sent for repair or storage (until there is money to fix them). And these products, at the beginning of the NWO, were not military aircraft. But after repair (including with the help of Eastern European countries, where there were specialists and spare parts), these products could become combat aircraft.
      Therefore, Konashenkov told the truth. At that time, almost all combat aviation of Ukraine was destroyed.
      The fact that THEN Ukraine began to try to restore its combat aircraft by repairing existing products and importing from other countries does not change this fact.
      And I also noticed that people like you completely ignore such a factor as time.
      Imagine being asked what time it is? You're being completely honest: it's 10 a.m. now. And after 8 hours they tell you: why did you lie, here is the proof, on the clock - 6 pm. You are a liar and you have been caught lying.
      Idiocy?
      So that's exactly what you're doing.
      Konashenkov says: in March the situation is like this.
      You say: now in December the situation is different, so in March Konashenkov lied.
      Idiocy?
      Idiocy.
      No matter how any prejudiced person understands. SITUATION IS CHANGING OVER TIME.

        On the morning of February 24, the combat aviation of the Chubats was outside the base airfields, and at the moment when calibers began to fall on them, there was no one there. They also do not have downs and WWII errors are taken into account correctly. So there was no destruction of military aviation, at least on the ground, as it was claimed in February.

    The presentation of information is very truncated (maybe it’s right) gives rise to distrust, not in quantity like doubtful couch experts. The number around the world is easily recruited (considering our corrupt SNGs), abroad it’s full of instants and soo. Now, if they spoke at what heights, then you can it would be to check the characteristics of aircraft missiles, they may not be able to shoot down. and so only bravura reports.

      Those same MiG-29s that, for example, Egypt has or those Su-27s that Indonesia has differ in equipment from those that Ukraine has in the same way that a CRT monitor differs from a plasma panel.
      To pilot and maintain them, you need to be trained in Russia. And very serious.
      Either in Lipetsk, or in Akhtubinsk, or from the manufacturer.

    It is clear that the same planes are flying that were in service with the Armed Forces of Ukraine at the beginning of the conflict and which were competently dispersed across airfields and hangars in Western Ukraine and also brought to neighboring countries in advance.
    If on 23.02.22/80/30 the Armed Forces of Ukraine had about 35 combat-ready tactical aircraft, then today probably XNUMX-XNUMX pieces have survived from them, which it was decided to upgrade to Western weapons.

    But there is, or rather there was one but.
    A large number of faulty / decommissioned / dismantled Su-24, Su-25 and MiG-29 in Ukraine accumulated over decades.
    In spring and summer, they were also hastily sorted out and adjusted - one could be assembled from several Su-25s.
    And in total there we can talk about another 80 aircraft or even more.

    Almost all transport ILs and ANs live in Europe and regularly carry cargo to Poland.

        This "Khokhlobot" writes everything correctly, and you often remove noodles from your ears and analyze information from alternative Skobeeva sources. The aviation was dispersed in advance, Zeliboba and the Natsik company knew about the attack at least a week before February 24th.

      I've replied to a similar comment before, so I'll duplicate it.

      Konashenkov said in early March:
      Almost all combat aviation of Ukraine has been destroyed.
      However, Ukrainian planes fly. And in a few months, these aircraft were knocked down quite a lot, after "almost complete destruction."
      Is Konashenkov lying?
      No, Konashenkov is telling the truth.
      At the beginning of the NWO, Ukraine had about 450 modern aircraft. But. Only about 150 aircraft were in service. It was these 150 aircraft (all combat aircraft) that were practically all destroyed.
      And the rest of about 300 aircraft of Ukraine?
      These are aircraft that, due to various malfunctions, were withdrawn from the state. And sent for repair or storage (until there is money to fix them). And these products, at the beginning of the NWO, were not military aircraft. But after repair (including with the help of Eastern European countries, where there were specialists and spare parts), these products could become combat aircraft.
      Therefore, Konashenkov told the truth. At that time, almost all combat aviation of Ukraine was destroyed.
      The fact that THEN Ukraine began to try to restore its combat aircraft by repairing existing products and importing from other countries does not change this fact.
      And I also noticed that people like you completely ignore such a factor as time.
      Imagine being asked what time it is? You're being completely honest: it's 10 a.m. now. And after 8 hours they tell you: why did you lie, here is the proof, on the clock - 6 pm. You are a liar and you have been caught lying.
      Idiocy?
      So that's exactly what you're doing.
      Konashenkov says: in March the situation is like this.
      You say: now in December the situation is different, so in March Konashenkov lied.
      Idiocy?
      Idiocy.
      No matter how any prejudiced person understands. SITUATION IS CHANGING OVER TIME.

    Literally a day or two ago it was that a couple and helicopters were shot down from the ground, the second aviation is about the same or different.

      You got ahead of me. Wouldn't it work out, as with the Hymers, only 40, and 44 have already been destroyed.
      During the Second World War, either a video report or several witnesses were required, incl. and on the ground. Otherwise, it's uncountable.

        For each downed aircraft, a large bonus is due. Rubles 300. In thousands. What to save in headquarters on reports?
