Ukrainian S-300s tried to lure out Russian combat aircraft, but were destroyed due to a mistake

Ukraine tried to ambush Russian fighter jets.

During the last attack of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on Zmeiny Island, the Ukrainian military also pursued another target, trying to lure Russian combat aircraft into the zone of destruction of their long-range air defense systems. Due to the fact that the latter would actually be above the water, the probability of their defeat would be maximum, however, apparently, the plans of the Ukrainian military failed due to the negligence committed among the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

As it became known, during the attack on Zmeiny Island, the Ukrainian military activated their S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems near the coast. The latter were not only supposed to provide cover, but, in fact, they were supposed to be used to destroy Russian combat aircraft when the latter would enter the affected area. Probably, according to the plan of the Ukrainian military, the aviation of the Russian Aerospace Forces was supposed to retaliate on the territory of Ukraine or be used to destroy aircraft near Serpent Island. The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation also confirmed the information about the use of the S-300 air defense system by the Ukrainian military.

“The anti-aircraft cover of the Ukrainian UAVs was provided by the S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems from combat positions in the area of ​​Tuzla and Ochakov”, - informs the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

However, apparently, the Ukrainian military made a serious mistake by activating the complexes in advance, which made it possible to identify the latter and successfully hit them with long-range anti-radar missiles.

“The aviation of the Russian Aerospace Forces destroyed two launchers of the S-300 anti-aircraft missile system in the Ochakov and Tuzla regions of the Odessa region”, - said at a briefing by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.
