ISW says air defense holds key importance for Ukraine
The supply of air defense systems and missiles from Western partners is still crucial for Ukraine's defense, as Russian troops are trying to adapt to the current capabilities of Ukrainian air defense
The Institute for the Study of War (ISW) reported the information.
According to ISW analysts, Russian and Ukrainian forces are currently engaged in a tactical and technological race to plan offensives and defenses, in which both sides are constantly experimenting and adapting their long-range strikes and modernizing air defense.
In addition, Western air defense systems and the supply of anti-aircraft missile systems to Ukraine in the short and medium term are also essential to protect Ukraine's growing defense industry, as Russian forces continue to strike at Ukraine's industrial facilities.
Earlier, Yuriy Ihnat, spokesman for the Ukrainian Air Force Command, said that the Ukrainian Air Force used a large stockpile of air defense missiles to repel the latest massive attacks.
