The tenth day of the heroic opposition of the Ukrainian people to the Russian military invasion has begun.


Since the beginning of the full-scale Russian-Ukrainian war, the Ukrainian Armed Forces have destroyed at least 39 enemy planes and 40 helicopters.

This was reported by the press service of the Ministry of Defense.

It is noted that the country’s air defense continues to destroy enemy aircraft and inflict air strikes on columns of equipment and manpower of the invaders.

Yesterday, the Russian invaders lost three Rooks, as Su-25 attack aircraft are called. Two of them were shot down in the Chernihiv region and one – near Volnovakha, Donetsk region.

In addition, three helicopters of the Russian occupation forces also set off on their last flight over the past day.

Thus, during the nine days of the war, the Ukrainian air defense destroyed at least 39 Russian aircraft and 40 helicopters.

“Before the full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the air group of the Russian army, concentrated around the Ukrainian borders, consisted of about seven hundred units of aviation equipment: about 450 aircraft and more than 250 helicopters! Fly – the Ukrainian land will accept everyone!” – reported in the Ministry of Defense.

The tenth day of the heroic opposition of the Ukrainian people to the Russian military invasion has begun.

Units and subdivisions of the invaders are demoralized, soldiers and officers of the occupying army continue to surrender, flee, leaving weapons and equipment on Ukrainian soil.

Active hostilities cause damage to the enemy not only by the armed units of the Ukrainian defenders, but also by ordinary unarmed people, demonstrating their civil position to the occupier, inflicting psychological defeat on him.
