Of all Ukrainian cities, only Kyiv is well protected from air strikes.
All means of air defense manage to protect 10-15 percent of the territory of Ukraine, so doubling their number will not prevent Russia from delivering devastating air strikes.
This opinion was expressed on the air of the national telethon by a military expert, reserve major of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Oleksiy Hetman.
“4 Patriots can protect 25 percent of Switzerland. How many percent do you think 2 Patriots can protect in Ukraine?… I believe that Ukraine is protected by all means of air defense, if it is 10-15 percent, then it is good… I am very optimistic…” – he noted.
Oleksiy Hetman emphasized that of all Ukrainian cities, only Kyiv is well protected from airstrikes, and in order to make most of the country’s territory safe, we need to increase the number of air defense equipment that our partners give us, not twice, but about 10 times.
We will remind, earlier the Minister of Defense of Ukraine Oleksiy Reznikov stated that the Ukrainian military managed to solve the task of protecting the capital from airstrikes and named the cities where the work of air defense is being strengthened.
