A series of missile strikes fell on the air bases of the occupiers.
The secret of “bavovna” in the Crimea temporarily occupied by the Russian Federation is revealed . The airbases on the peninsula have become the target of a series of missile strikes.
Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valery Zaluzhny spoke about this in a joint article with Mikhail Zabrodsky, First Deputy Chairman of the Defense Committee of the Council.
It is noted that the main feature of the fighting between the Ukrainian and Russian armies is not the difference in the number of forces and means and not the scale of the operation against Ukraine, but the disproportion in abilities. The military recognized that it was impossible to simultaneously deprive the enemy of such a significant advantage, but it was possible to counter the enemy with the ability to act in a similar way and at a similar range.
“We are talking, of course, about the supply by Ukrainian partners for the Armed Forces of Ukraine of weapons systems or certain types of ammunition with an appropriate range,” the article says.
It is indicated that a comprehensive approach is needed to re-equip artillery, missile forces, tactical aviation and the Naval Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and other components of their power. The generals said that an example of the correctness of this approach is the success of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in transferring hostilities to the temporarily occupied territory of Crimea.
“We are talking about a series of successful missile strikes on the enemy’s Crimean air bases, primarily on the Saki airfield,” the article explains.
