How long Russian pilots prepare for new missile terrorist attack? AFU Colonel Selezniov explains
Vladyslav Selezniov, a military expert, colonel of Ukraine's Armed Forces, spokesman for Ukrainian General Staff in 2014-2017, emphasized that air raid warnings should not be ignored
He said this on the Espreso TV channel.
"The spokesman for the Ukrainian Air Force Command, Mr. Ihnat, said that once every four days the Russian army will be ready for large-scale attacks. Russian army regulations from 30 years ago stipulated that a maximum of 16 hours is required for Russian pilots to be fully prepared for the next mission. We must always be on the alert, and not neglect air raid warnings," Selezniov said.
According to the Ukrainian Armed Forces colonel, Ukraine should not underestimate the Russian enemy, as its intelligence capabilities are quite powerful.
"The network of spies operates directly on the territories controlled by the Ukrainian authorities. The latest large-scale missile and drone attacks were aimed at military facilities and military infrastructure. It is very important for the enemy to weaken the combat potential of the Ukrainian army as much as possible. Strengthening counterintelligence measures on the territory of our country is one of the key factors that will allow us to block any attempts by the enemy to find out where and in what volumes production for the needs of the Ukrainian army is taking place," Selezniov added.
