On 19 March 2022, the Ukrainian Air Defense Forces shot down three Russian aircraft. This was reported by the Command of the Air Force of the UAF.
"The enemy has significantly reduced its presence in the Ukrainian sky. Unfortunately, today, the air defense shot down only three rashyst [russian fascist] helicopters. Therefore, the daily plan on air rashysts eliminations has not been fulfilled!" - says the message.
The Air Force Command also emphasizes that they expect the Allies to supply Ukraine with modern air defense systems and fighter aircraft instead of mere "statements and applause to Ukrainian heroes."
"Currently, the Air Force is successfully beating the occupiers with weapons manufactured in '80s. The rashysts, on the other hand, are using the latest models against us: hypersonic missiles and aircraft, which significantly outnumber ours, both in number and combat characteristics. However, the situation can change a lot when "We use modern equipment provided by our partners and will close the sky from rashysts' terrorism," the command said.
The Operational Command "Pivden" published a video where UAV Bayraktar is destroying a column of enemy military vehicles.
