"There will be even more explosions on the Russian territory": military expert Kyrychevskyi on Engels airfield attack
Russian military bases and airfields are highly vulnerable, as Russian forces actively use missiles from the S-300 and S-400 air defense systems to strike Ukraine
Military expert Ivan Kyrychevskyi said this on Espreso TV.
“Terrorists always feel impunity. The Russians, after the explosions at their military airfields, have lost this feeling. They feel that they will be punished. Therefore, it is quite possible that during the last missile attack, the Russians planned to fire more munitions, however, after the attacks on military airfields, some Russian pilots refused to fly because they were afraid for their own lives," Kyrychevskyi explained.
The expert noted that Russian military bases and airfields are very vulnerable to strikes.
“Now Russian propagandists are thinking about what is better to spend money on: strategic bombers or naval forces. Now they are successfully blowing the budget for the construction of three corvettes for the Black Sea Fleet. This project has been successfully looted for three years. However, as recent events have shown, Russia's strategic aviation and navy are unprotected. And the more the Russians shoot missiles from the S-300 and S-400 complexes at Ukraine, the more strikes there will be on their territory. Since they will have nothing to cover their military bases and airfields,” he added.
On December 5, the Dyagilevo military airfields in the Ryazan region and Engels in the Saratov region were hit. Three Russian servicemen who were at the airfield were mortally wounded. Four others were injured. According to unconfirmed data, two Tu-95MS strategic bombers were damaged in an explosion at one of the airfields, and a fuel tank exploded at another. In the evening, the Russian Ministry of Defense admitted that two airfields had been hit.
