At present, the army of the aggressor country is experiencing a serious shortage of qualified pilots. This explains the tactics of the enemy to launch rocket attacks on Ukrainian cities.

This was stated in an interview with Dmitry Gordon by the former head of the departments of the Security Service of Ukraine in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions, Major General Alexander Petrulevich.

“They don’t have any pilots. Look what kind of pilots we take prisoner, not counting those who, like kamikazes, die along with planes and helicopters. The deputy commander of the regiment and the squadron commander. Think about it! It turns out that there is no one to fly. Where is simple lieutenants, senior lieutenants? That’s it, they’ve arrived,” the general says.

He also stressed that the invaders will have to bear responsibility for the destruction of Ukrainian cities.

“They don’t even have missiles. That’s the problem. Lately they’ve been using the tactics of simple destruction. How they destroyed Grozny, how they destroyed Syria. Only they don’t understand one thing – they will have to answer for all this. It just won’t work,” – Petrulevich noted.

According to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, since the beginning of the full-scale war with Russia, Ukrainian defenders have shot down 185 enemy planes and 155 helicopters.

It should be noted that earlier military expert Oleg Zhdanov predicted that the Russian invaders would continue shelling Ukrainian cities until the last day of the war , without changing their current tactics.

  1. “They don’t even have missiles.” Really? There are some Ukrainians who wish that was true. Don’t misunderstand me, I like the uplifting nature of the article but until Russians are left with throwing rocks, I won’t be satisfied.

    • I believe that’s why their demented rhetoric has turned up a notch. They’ve used 70% of their guided missiles and can’t get foreign parts to make more. Their main issue is they had equipment so they looked strong on paper but they remain Moskali so every one of them thinks they are the boss. Then they have 5 bosses for every soldier or pilot so they send children to do their destruction.
      That is another reason they are stuck simply bombing easy to hit massive apartment complexes. The few thousand able fighters are dwindling every day so they may not even last until their nazi parade day. I hope we can free Kharkiv and Mariupol soon!

  2. Mafia land is like a boxer who knows he is losing and just throws wild punches around him. No more tactics, agility or effectiveness.
