Air Force calls on the media not to make unfounded "victorious news" about Ukraine receiving MiG jets
The UAF Air Force spokesperson, Yuriy Ignat, called on reporters to stop making manipulative headlines and unfounded "victorious" news related to Ukraine receiving Slovak and Polish MiG jets, writes Interfax-Ukraine.
"Dear representatives of the media! Please stop making manipulative headlines, unfounded 'victorious news' about the transfer of Slovak and Polish MiG jets, which supposedly, I quote... "enabled us to equip three fighter brigades,'" Ihnat said in a statement posted on the UAF Air Force Telegram channel.
The spokesman stressed that the Air Force has five fighter brigades in total, three of which are armed with MiG-29 jets.
However, according to Ihnat, Ukraine receiving Polish and Slovak MiG-29 jets will somewhat strengthen the fighting capabilities of the Air Force in the current combat missions, but "in no way will it solve the issues of a 'counteroffensive', 'victory', etc."
"To achieve air superiority and victory, we need modern multi-purpose aircraft with a wide range of weapons," Ihnat concluded.
As IMI reported, the Russian occupiers have been spreading fake news about Ukrainian media purportedly receiving "guidebooks" on how to cover the battles for Bakhmut.
