D.According to British intelligence experts, Russia’s difficulties in advancing in Ukraine are due to the weakness of its air force. The British Ministry of Defense updated on Monday that this could be one of the most important factors behind the very limited Russian victories. So far, the Air Force has tended to avoid dangers in its maneuvers and has not been able to achieve air dominance. This has increased the pressure on Russian ground forces, which are now increasingly exhausted.
According to British estimates, the Russians have combat-capable aircraft, but are not properly trained for modern Air Force operations. For many years, Russian Air Force training was said to have focused more on attracting high-ranking military officers than on training dynamic deployment shots for different troops.
