Few people noticed that yesterday Russia lost its air force

The Main Air Force Commander itself is no more. With the same number and the same thing they tried to saddle with the Russian Airborne Forces, but due to the active position of the paratroopers, this has not been done yet. The positions of the pilots, who have long been systematically reduced, destroyed, deprived of fuel for flying hours - and so on ... - except in the kitchen - we did not hear.
So, in unequal battles with flying pieces of paper from the table - the Prime Minister’s presidency - on a stool - our valiant aviation was quietly and inconspicuous for the country and the people - almost all was knocked out or subordinated to the enemy.
The Air Force is no more. And what remains - will obey the common tasks ... NATO.

Who else was not convinced, look here:

Army aircraft removed from the subordination of the Russian Air Force - Air Force Commander

16 November. - Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Air Force, Colonel-General Alexander Zelin said on Tuesday that army aviation had come under the command of the joint strategic command, the Russian Air Force would be responsible only for the combat training of army aviation.

    I really hope that those mistakes that were made by the previous MO will be corrected in a short time. There is no way without aviation. NATO is not a friend or even a friend to us. Train pilots, build and upgrade the airfield network and aviation, increase flight hours. In general, cook cool specialists. I watched the video of the flight of the SU-35S already goose bumps. One must be strong. Otherwise they will crush.
