The above information was said by honorary Russian military pilot, Major General Vladimir Popov, noting that initially the Armed Forces Ukraine there can be up to 600 fighters and helicopters of all kinds.
According to Popov, the Ukrainian Air Force still has a lot of fighters and helicopters, most of which are located in the western part of the country.
Popov’s estimate of the arsenal of the Ukrainian air force at the beginning of the Russian special military operation differs greatly from the estimate of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces.
“What does the Ukrainian Air Force have and how are they ready to fight? The fact that the countries of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), namely Poland, Germany or Slovenia, may have transferred to Kiev a certain number of weapons.
Today, Ukraine has about 200 fighters and helicopters left – this is about 2 divisions, and by the time the special military operation began, there were about 600 of them. These aircraft are located from Kharkov to Krivoy Rog and Odessa. But mostly in the western regions of Ukraine,” Vzglyad said.
Recently, the West is actively transferring parts and weapons of military aviation equipment to Ukraine, which also emphasizes that Ukraine still has a sizable number of military aircraft.
According to experts, the most convincing reason why the Ukrainian Armed Forces do not use fighters is the lack of pilots, because in recent years, the Ukrainian Air Force has had a personnel crisis. very serious.
