"We know what enemy is looking for": Ukrainian Air Force comments on Russian attack on Khmelnytskyi
On the morning of September 15, Russia tried to attack Ukraine with drones. It launched 17 Shahed drones at the Khmelnytskyi region
Yuriy Ihnat, a spokesman for the Ukrainian Air Force, made the statement on the United News telethon.
According to him, all 17 Shaheds were shot down along the route.
"Khmelnytskyi region was attacked again. It is clear what the enemy is looking for - they are looking for where the commander hid our bombers after the events that took place recently in our sea near Crimea," Ihnat emphasized.
He also noted that during the morning attack, Russian troops slightly shifted the time of launches.
"They usually launch from 10:30 pm to 10:50 pm. Then several waves - up to 04:00 am. The morning attack allows mobile fire groups to practice better. When it is daylight, the target becomes visually visible," added the Air Force spokesman.
On Friday, September 15, during an air raid, the Russian occupying forces launched Shahed-136/131 strike UAVs from the southeast (Primorsko-Akhtarsk - Russia). The explosions were heard, in particular, in the Khmelnytskyi region.
