In connection with the crisis situation in the sea of Azov, regular exercise.
The work of the Ukrainian military aircraft over the sea of Azov now is not uncommon. Attack helicopters Mi-24 and su-25, flying at a few dozen meters above the tourists on the coast, do not participate in the fighting in Eastern Ukraine is just practice.
“In order to continuously maintain the skills of flight crews to overcome the defense of the opponent and strikes for certain objects”, – explained to “Radio Liberty” serviceman of VSU Sergey Alyshev.
Although the reason for this activity in the sky, recognize pilots – not quite the desire to keep yourself in shape.
“In connection with the crisis situation in the sea of Azov, regular exercise. Check the readiness of army aviation to the solution of unexpected problems, to destroy ground and sea targets,” – said the head of Department of the army aviation OS Muhammad Boranbaev. The crisis, said the military has provoked Russia was blocking the Ukrainian ports in the sea of Azov.
“Today, unfortunately, aviation is the only full way to counter the Russians at sea, which we have. Since neither the naval forces nor the other security forces, no anti-ship nor shore, nor of surface complexes, that is, we have, in principle, no anti-ship missiles in the country. The only effective way to counter is to aviation,” – said the Chairman of “Ukrainian military centre” Taras Chmut.
But crew training from the joint forces are now not only limited to the Azov direction. The geography of exercises is much wider.
