The Ukrainian Armed Forces are seeking to weaken Russian air defense before receiving the F-16

Ukrainian forces are actively working to weaken Russian air defenses ahead of receiving F-16 multi-role fighter jets from Western partners. According to the Institute for the Study of War (ISW), Ukrainian forces are seeking to create favorable conditions for the use of manned aircraft closer to front-line areas, which will be possible with a sufficient number of aircraft and trained pilots.

ISW notes that the successful weakening of Russian air defenses will allow Ukraine to significantly increase air support for ground operations. The institute's report emphasizes the importance of conducting such operations for success on the battlefield. Experts believe that Western partners should continue training Ukrainian pilots and supplying modern weapons to ensure the most effective use of the resulting F-16 fighters.

Earlier, Russian war correspondent Saponkov made the same statement.
