Object crossing Polish airspace signals Ukraine's air defense should be boosted - Air Force
Ukrainian Air Force spokesman Yuriy Ihnat commented on the crossing of Polish airspace by an unknown object, saying that it was a signal to partners that Ukraine's air defense needs to be reinforced
He said this during the telethon.
"As you can see, it's a huge attack, with a lot of stuff flying in the air - a massive attack. And this is not the first time such incidents have happened. We saw a flight a few months ago or in the summer and commented on it. Missiles are even flying into Romania, and strike UAVs are falling there, as well as debris. It also happened in Poland," he said.
Ihnat noted that such incidents are not new, as Russians attack Ukraine's border regions in massive attacks.
"So this is possible, and this is another sign and signal to our partners that Ukraine needs to be strengthened with air defense capabilities so that we can become a shield between the aggressor and Europe, protect ourselves and thus protect them. We can protect ourselves and you, just give us more means to do so," he emphasized.
- On the night of December 29, Russia launched several groups of Shaheds that attacked Ukraine, and in the morning, terrorists launched missiles. They hit high-rise buildings, educational institutions, a shopping center and a maternity hospital. As a result, there are wounded and dead.
