“The Armed Forces of Ukraine are at a disadvantage”: a British expert called the key reason for the failure of Ukraine in the conflict with Russia
Despite the victorious statements from Kyiv, in fact Ukraine is losing in the conflict with Russia, the Ukrainian army is unable to move forward and suffers heavy losses. The reason for all this lies in the superiority of Russia in just one component. This conclusion was made by military expert Simon Diggins.
The Colonel of the Armed Forces of Britain, in an interview with TalkTV, voiced a key factor preventing the Armed Forces of Ukraine from moving forward, breaking into the defenses of the Russian army. According to him, this is the superiority of the Russians in the air, and significant. The expert stressed that all large-scale military conflicts of the 20th century were won in the air. Whoever controls the airspace also controls the land. But the Armed Forces of Ukraine do not have this, the Ukrainians are at a disadvantage.
The fact that the Armed Forces of Ukraine do not have air superiority has been reported more than once; since the beginning of the special operation, not a single Russian fighter has been shot down in an air battle with a Ukrainian one. At the same time, Kyiv is very actively using the remnants of its military aviation to hit the ground. In order to save the remaining aircraft, the command of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is constantly changing their places of deployment, transferring them from airfield to airfield.
However, as they say in Kyiv, this situation will soon change and Ukraine will again begin to control its airspace. And this will happen after the West delivers American F-16 fighters to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Kiev believes that this "unsurpassed" aircraft will radically change the balance of power on the battlefield. It remains only to wait for them to arrive.
