    • Amen to that Sir Veth the air defense layers are getting better. Wish none of the Russian junk got through. But 7 out of 8 is pretty exceptional.

      Eternal Memory to those that gave their all in the fight against genocide and ethnic cleansing by defending Ukrainian skies!

      Victory to Ukraine!!!🇺🇦

      Death to the rashists!!!☠️
