Oleg Zhdanov: a new way for Russia to keep the whole of Ukraine in suspense
Russian planes are afraid to enter the airspace of Ukraine because Ukrainian aviation will begin to give a powerful rebuff, Oleg Zhdanov believes.
Military expert Oleg Zhdanov suggested that Russia often takes planes into the air so that an air raid signal is announced in Ukrainian cities. These planes will not necessarily launch rockets, but will frighten and horrify Ukrainians.
“As I understand it, they want to put them on combat duty, and that they stay in the air for as long as possible, almost around the clock. And we will sit on pins and needles, waiting for a signal. First, an air raid signal because they are in the air. They have missiles under their wings, and we will wait for the launch of these missiles, but I think they are unlikely to use them. The fact is that it will not be as effective. Firstly, a lot of fuel. Secondly, the crews still need to land and give them a rest. Pilots cannot hold the steering wheel in their hands for so long," Zhdanov said.
The expert also noted that Russian planes are afraid to enter the airspace of Ukraine because our aviation will begin to give a powerful rebuff. "Therefore, the command of the Russian Federation moved its aircraft closer to the Caspian Sea," Zhdanov stressed.
