The Ukrainian leadership is doing everything possible to make the country’s air force a thing of the past as soon as possible.
Experienced pilots and newcomers leave the service en masse, Narodniy Novosti reports. The reason was that they simply had nothing to fly – there were almost no aircraft left in the Ukrainian Air Force.
Military experts from Ukraine and other countries have repeatedly drawn attention to the deplorable state of the air force.
Kiev refuses to spend money on the repair and modernization of the country’s aircraft fleet. As a result, cars, which have recently been in satisfactory condition, simply rust and fall apart before our eyes.
The most optimistic forecasts are not comforting: already about 70% of all fighters and bombers are inoperative. They simply will not be able to rise into the air, which means they have become useless.
Zelensky forgot to invite Biden to Ukraine
Air aces are just tired of doing paperwork and flying only in virtual reality. Their salaries are not very large, and therefore the decision to go to civil aviation remains the only way to feed their families. Some of them even decide to go abroad and start their careers there from scratch.
