Ukrainian Air Force Downs Three More Russian Fighter-Bombers, Bringing Total to 12 in 13 Days:
Three more Russian Sukhoi Su-34 fighter bombers were downed, bringing a total of 12 SU planes brought down in the last 13 days and 13 Russian planes overall, including an A-50U radar aircraft.
The Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) brought down three more Russian Su-34 fighter bombers on Thursday, totalling 12 Su planes brought down in the last 13 days and 13 Russian planes overall, including an A-50U radar aircraft.
Early in the morning, Ukrainian Air Force commander Mykola Oleshchuk reported downing the first fighter bomber in the Eastern direction.
“Today, Feb. 29, is a date that occurs once every four years, but it is already a familiar day for Russians with the loss of another plane. Minus Su-34 in the Eastern direction!” Ukrainian Air Force commander Mykola Oleshchuk reported via Telegram.
“Thanks for the work! Victory on earth is forged in heaven!” he wrote.
This message was shortly followed by the next one, reporting on the downing of two more SU-34 jets.
"They don't seem to get it! Russian pilots draw no conclusions! Today, at about 9.00 in the Avdiivka and Mariupol directions, two more invaders' Su-34 were destroyed! Together - to victory!" Oleshchuk added.
At the same time, it is still unclear what the fate of the Russian pilots of the downed Su-34 is. Also, the Air Force did not specify which weapon was used to shoot down the Russian planes.
The Sukhoi Su-34 (NATO: Fullback) is Russia’s premier frontline fighter bomber, designed primarily for launching laser-guided bombs or long-range guided missiles in precision strikes on ground targets.
Equipped with radar allowing for the use of modern Russian air-to-air missiles, the Su-34, priced at around $36 million each, stands as one of the Russian military’s costliest aircraft. --->READ MORE HERE
Ukrainian forces push back Russian troops breaking through to near Orlivka — Armed Forces Commander Syrskyi:
Ukraine's Armed Forces Commander-in-Chief Colonel General Oleksandr Syrskyi noted that the situation is especially tense in the Avdiivka and Zaporizhzhia sectors, where Russian assault units are trying to break through the defense of Ukrainian troops.
The General Staff of the Armed Forces reports this.
"The enemy is actively pursuing offensive actions across various front lines. The Avdiivka and Zaporizhzhia directions are under intense pressure, with Russian assault units seeking to breach our defenses and capture Tonenke, Orlivka, Semenivka, Berdychi, Krasnohorivka," stated Syrskyi.
Fierce battles persist in Verbove and Robotyne districts, where the enemy strives to regain control.
Syrskyi commenced his duties in the conflict area with the operational-tactical group "Donetsk," focusing on units defending in the Avdiivka direction.
"The success of any battle hinges on planning quality and the effective execution of the commander's plan by subordinates. At the battalion, company, and platoon levels, the key is practical implementation, holding positions, and eliminating the enemy using all available means," he remarked.
Syrskyi acknowledged some miscalculations by individual commanders during their operations, affecting defense stability in specific directions. --->READ MORE HERE
