Russia may have lost four combat jets in Ukraine in last 10 days, UK says

According to the British military, Russia has lost at least four combat planes in Ukraine in the previous ten days, bringing its total losses to over 55 since the commencement of its incursion.

The Russian Air Force assuming higher danger in order to offer close air support to Russian ground forces under pressure from Ukrainian advances, according to the Defense Ministry’s daily intelligence on Twitter, is a possible prospect.

Russian pilots’ situational awareness is often poor, it said. “There is a realistic possibility that some aircraft have strayed over enemy territory and into denser air defense zones as the front lines have moved rapidly.”
