The Russians were forced to take risks and bring their planes closer to the front line in Avdiivka.

This helped the Armed Forces to destroy a large number of enemy aircraft.

Yuriy Ignat, the spokesman of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, said this on the air of the telethon.

According to him, due to constant airstrikes on Avdiivka, Russia was forced to risk its aviation and bring it to the zone of destruction by Ukrainian means.

This made it possible to target a large number of Russian aircraft in this direction, as well as to make the occupiers think about whether it is worth flying to the front at all.

The spokesman of the Air Force noted that the destruction of the Russian aircraft has a psychological effect on the occupiers.

"Each air raid and air bomb strike seriously affects the front line. You must understand the terrible consequences when a 500-kilogram bomb arrives," Ignat said.

It will be recalled that in February, the Ukrainian Air Force demonstrated record efficiency in the fight against Russian aviation.

According to the results of the month, 13 enemy planes were shot down - this is the best result since October 2022.
