British Intelligence: London: Russia unable to compensate for aircraft losses

According to British intelligence experts, Russia cannot make up for the loss of aircraft in the war of aggression in Ukraine.

"Russian aircraft losses probably far exceed their ability to produce new airframes," said the British Ministry of Defense's daily update on the Ukraine war. The long time it takes to train competent pilots also reduces Moscow's ability to regenerate its air force capabilities.

According to Ukrainian sources, Russian forces have already lost 278 aircraft since the invasion began - twice as many as in Afghanistan, according to the British. "We cannot verify these numbers, but the continued lack of Russian air supremacy is likely compounded by poor training, the loss of experienced crews, and increased risks from close air support in tightly meshed anti-aircraft zones," the statement said. That will probably not change in the coming months.

The British Ministry of Defense has published daily information on the course of the war since the start of the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine. The government wants to counter the Russian portrayal and keep allies in line. Moscow accuses London of a disinformation campaign.
