Russia is using new guided bombs in the amount of up to 20 per day along the entire frontline, Air Force spokesman Yuriy Ihnat has said on the air of the national telethon, Liga.net reports.
According to him, there is no lull in the air, as Russian aircraft continue to regularly strike Ukraine.
Ihnat noted that the Russians have started using glider bombs that fly tens of kilometres - up to about 70 km.
"The enemy is using 10-15, up to 20 bombs a day, along the entire frontline from Su-35 and Su-34 aircraft, which are not within the range of our air defence systems. Unfortunately, we have nothing to respond with yet, we need Patriot and Western fighters for this," he explained.
