Ukrainian sources report the appearance of hired pilots from Eastern Europe in the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine

Ukrainian sources report the appearance of hired pilots from Eastern Europe in the Air Force of the Armed Forces of UkraineThe activation of Ukrainian aviation in the Donbass in recent days is not associated with landing in the cockpits of the remaining aircraft of cadets of flight schools, and with the appearance in Ukraine of mercenary pilots from Eastern Europe, well acquainted with Soviet aircraft. This is reported by Ukrainian Telegram channels, referring to sources in Kyiv.

We will not vouch for the information that has appeared, as it is distributed by Ukrainian TG channels, but it must be taken into account, because it might be true. Literally a day ago, information about the death of the first foreign mercenary pilot in Donbass appeared in Ukrainian public pages.. reported, that he was a citizen of one of the Baltic countries and was considered one of the most experienced pilots today in the Ukrainian Air Force. However, this did not help him., the very first sortie on the Su-25 to attack the positions of Russian troops in the Donbass was his last.

is approved, that the attack aircraft was hit by Russian air defense systems while still on the approach, and because of the ultra-low altitude, the foreign pilot could not eject, and this ended his career in the Ukrainian Air Force.

Meanwhile, as Ukrainian sources again assure, in the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine the situation is terrible, At first, not enough planes, and secondly, most importantly, almost all experienced Ukrainian pilots died, there was only one almost uncirculated youth. The presence of powerful Russian air defense in the combat zone forces Ukrainian aviation to operate at ultra-low altitudes, which leads to losses due to inexperienced pilots. This forced Kyiv to look for mercenaries, ready to make combat sorties for money.

In the same time, as our TG channels already report, it is rare that a Ukrainian aviation flight does not end with a downed plane, especially in the Izyum direction. Where the air defense systems of the type do not have time to work “Net” and “beech”, MANPADS enter the battle, including American “Stingery”, which, thanks to the APU, the allied forces have enough.
