He said this on Espreso TV. 

"Russian aviation is a very significant element of their defense. So, of course, when things like this happen, it is a sign that the Ukrainian army sees everything. This ‘long arm’ of the Ukrainian Armed Forces has been working for a long time, starting with military operations in Crimea," he said.

According to him, the entire depth of the occupation army's defense is under fire from various weapons systems of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

"In order for the invading army to bleed out, it needs to be hit more and more often. Accordingly, we need to get more supplies, more ammunition, and then we will be able to grind their battle lines," added Prozapas.

The Russian troops’ logistics lever in this area is very long. Every soldier, artillery system and airstrike is very expensive for them, the Ukrainian Armed Forces captain noted.

"In this 'war of resources' that started a few months ago, such elements are very important. We have to withstand it and our rear must be reliable. We need to work on this, because the entire civilized world must stand behind us," he summarized.

  • On November 17, explosions were heard on Dnipro's left bank in the Kherson region. One of the monitoring channels reported that the Ukrainian Armed Forces attacked the airfield in the village of Tarasivka.
  • ASTRA reports that the Russian troops suffered losses, in particular, 2 aircraft were damaged. "On the morning of November 18, an airfield in the occupied village of Tarasivka came under fire. Two Russian military transport aircraft An-12 were damaged as a result of the attack by the Armed Forces of Ukraine; the hangar was also damaged," the publication writes.
