Russian anti-aircraft gunners in the Mariupol region shot down two Mi-8 helicopters of the Armed Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, who were trying to evacuate the leaders of Azov
Yesterday, 20:42

Helicopters of the armed forces of Ukraine again took off from the Dnipropetrovsk region in the direction of Mariupol today. We are talking about the Mi-8 helicopters of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which were again sent by the command to carry out the evacuation of the leaders of the national formation "Azov" (* banned in the Russian Federation as an extremist group) and the command of the unit of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. However, the attempt ended in a fiasco.


The Russian Ministry of Defense reports that two helicopters of the Armed Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were destroyed by Russian anti-aircraft gunners in the Mariupol region. According to the official representative of the department, Major General Igor Konashenkov, the helicopters tried to enter the direction of the port from the sea. The flight took place at low altitudes.

To destroy the Ukrainian rotorcraft, portable anti-aircraft missile systems, which are in service with the Russian army, were used.

At the moment, there is no data yet on what kind of losses the enemy suffered during an unsuccessful attempt to evacuate the leaders of Azov *. At the same time, there are suggestions that these were two of the three Mi-8s, which a few days ago the evacuation operation was still a success. After the events when several helicopters of the Armed Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine managed to escape, additional measures were taken to strengthen the army air defense system in the city area. And these measures have already brought results.

Russian Armed Forces Destroyed the S-300 Air Defense Division Supplied from Europe to Ukraine
Yesterday, 10:59

1649712185416.png





The Russian Ministry of Defense confirmed the destruction of the S-300 anti-aircraft missile system supplied to Ukraine by one of the countries of Eastern Europe. The blow was delivered by high-precision weapons.

According to the data provided by the Russian military department, the S-300 anti-aircraft system received by Kiev was transferred to the area of the city of Dnepr (Dnepropetrovsk), apparently closer to the Donbass on the eve of the Russian army’s offensive, in order to cause significant damage to the aviation of the Russian Aerospace Forces, but the plans of the Kiev regime were not realized destined.

The Russian Ministry of Defense had earlier warned Kyiv and its Western sponsors that all transferred military equipment and weapons would be destroyed by high-precision weapons, and kept its word. The S-300 anti-aircraft complex hidden in one of the hangars on the outskirts of Dnepropetrovsk has become a target for Russian high-precision missiles, the military says. The blow was struck on Sunday, April 10, by Caliber cruise missiles from the Black Sea.

It is emphasized that during the strike, equipment of the S-300 anti-aircraft division was destroyed, including four launchers and up to 25 personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The report says that the anti-aircraft complex transferred to Kiev by "one of the European countries" was destroyed. We are talking about Slovakia, since Ukraine received the only S-300 division and it was from the Slovaks.

Just a few days ago, it was reported that the system was secretly transported to the territory of Ukraine, in Kyiv it was called a win, but it quickly turned into another evil. It never reaches Zelensky and his sponsors that Russia is keeping its word and if Ukraine is to be demilitarized and denazified, then it will be so.

Ukraine was unable to save the S-300 systems delivered from abroad
Yesterday, 11:15
4


Over the past two weeks, domestic and foreign media have reported on the supply of S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems to the Ukrainian armed forces, in particular from Slovakia, in exchange for those knocked out by Russian strikes on military infrastructure facilities.





According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, the Russian Armed Forces knocked out 90% of Ukraine's air defense systems thanks to precise strikes by ground-based and air-based cruise missiles. Under the conditions of the total dominance of the Russian Aerospace Forces in the air, the Ukrainian authorities requested the supply of air defense systems from NATO countries. The choice, as expected, fell on the Soviet-made S-300s, which were already familiar to the Ukrainian military. Such complexes were in service with Croatia and Slovakia.

The other day S-300 from Slovakia arrived on the territory of Ukraine. There was no reliable information about the places of their deployment, however, apparently, they did not get to them. According to statements by the official representative of the defense department, Major General Igor Konashenkov, on April 10, 2022, Caliber cruise missiles in the city of Dnepropetrovsk (now the city of Dnipro in Ukrainian toponymy) destroyed 4 launchers of the S-300 complex, as well as about 25 military personnel of the Armed Forces . Whether these servicemen were operators and technicians of the complexes, there is no information.

Recall that the S-300 was considered the best air defense system of its time due to its long range, including against high-flying targets. The complexes can shoot down both aircraft and enemy missiles, including those flying at a speed of about 2800 m/s. Such indicators are unattainable by the closest foreign analogue - the Patriot air defense system manufactured by the American company Raytheon. It was these systems that formed the basis of the long-range frontier of the air and missile defense of Ukraine. In the first 2 weeks of the operation, about 130 Ukrainian S-300s were destroyed.

This time, it was not the anti-aircraft gunners who distinguished themselves, but the Russian aviation, the Ukrainian plane was shot down in an air battle, no details are given. Perhaps it was this fighter that managed to get away from the Russian missiles on the military airfield near Odessa in order to meet Russian fighters in the air.

As previously reported in the Ministry of Defense, Russian Su-35 and Su-30SM fighters participating in the special operation carry missiles both for strikes against ground targets and for air combat. Recently, however, Ukrainian Air Force aircraft very rarely take to the air.

Three Bayraktar TB2 attack drones of the Ukrainian Navy were shot down in the area of Snake Island
Yesterday, 20:32
145




The Russian Ministry of Defense confirms the destruction of three Bayraktar TB2 attack drones in the area of Snake Island. According to the report, all three UAVs were shot down by air defense means, no other details are available.

Meanwhile, military experts note that the combat effectiveness of the Turkish Bayraktar TB2 against the Russian army is much lower than the Ukrainians claimed and the Turks themselves assumed. The drone easily becomes a target for Russian air defense systems and is not capable of operating in areas with saturated air defense. Since the beginning of the special operation, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have lost almost all drones received from the Turks, which had a very negative impact on the rating and demand for Bayraktar TB2.

Now to the evening summary of the special operation. During the day, the Russian Aerospace Forces launched air-launched missile strikes on 36 AFU facilities.

In addition, in the Dnipropetrovsk region, in the area of the settlement of Pokrovskoye, a RAV and ammunition depot was destroyed, and in the area of \u200b\u200bthe settlement of Mezhevaya, four launchers of the S-300 air defense system and a reconnaissance and guidance radar station were destroyed.

During the day, operational-tactical and army aviation attacked 13 strongholds of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, OTRK "Iskander" worked out in four areas of concentration of manpower and military equipment of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the command post of the 93rd OMBR of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was destroyed. Artillery worked along the entire line of contact, the firing positions of eight artillery batteries, 12 strongholds and areas of concentration of enemy manpower and equipment were destroyed.

Air defense systems shot down seven drones during the day, including three Bayraktar TB2s in the area of Snake Island.

In total, since the beginning of the special military operation, the following have been destroyed: 146 aircraft, 112 helicopters, 690 unmanned aerial vehicles, 285 anti-aircraft missile systems, 2,760 tanks and other armored combat vehicles, 316 multiple rocket launchers, 1,246 field artillery pieces and mortars, as well as 2,578 units of special military vehicles

The Russian Aerospace Forces attacked the military airfield of Odessa, where Bayraktar TB2 drones were based
Yesterday, 19:47
94


The Russian Armed Forces delivered another blow to Odessa, this time the Shkolny airfield came under attack. Local media and public report a powerful explosion and a rising column of smoke.


book24.ru



In Odessa today flew for the second time. If the railway bridge across the Dniester estuary, along which the echelons from the Moldovan side with weapons and fuels and lubricants, were coming under attack from the Russian "Caliber", the second one was struck at the Shkolny airfield and was inflicted by Russian Aerospace Forces with high-precision air-launched missiles.

As reported, Bayraktar TB2 attack drones of the Ukrainian Navy were based at the airfield, which today allegedly attacked Russian boats in the area of Snake Island. So they then became the target of the strike. Locals do not name the target of the strike, reporting that an air raid alert has been declared in Odessa, data on the victims and destruction are being specified.

So far, no official reports have been received from the Russian Ministry of Defense, perhaps confirmation of the information will be in the morning report, since there is no mention of this in the evening, although strikes with precision missiles are necessarily included in the report during the special operation.

By the way, the Odessa media confirm the strongest damage to the railway bridge across the Dniester Liman, bridge supports are damaged there, and according to the most optimistic forecasts, repairs may take at least five months. So the southern direction of supplies of fuel and lubricants and weapons from Romania through Moldova is closed securely.

The Ukrainian command does not leave attempts to seize the island of Serpents, continuing to send drones in the direction of the island, including attack drones. However, the Russian air defense works perfectly. According to the Ministry of Defense, during the night three UAVs were shot down near the island, including two Bayraktar TB2.
1652095494894.png

In addition, the destruction of military infrastructure in the area of Odessa and the Odessa region continues. At night, high-precision Onyx missiles hit the jump platform in the Artsyz area, where Ukrainian helicopters were destroyed. The coastal missile system "Bastion" worked out at the airfield.

Also, Russian anti-aircraft gunners did an excellent job in the Donetsk and Kharkov regions, shooting down two MiG-29 fighters and one Su-25 attack aircraft. At the same time, the air defense "landed" 12 different Ukrainian drones and intercepted three Smerch MLRS rockets. That's all for last night.

Also, air-launched high-precision missiles continued to strike the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Two control posts and a Grad MLRS battery were destroyed in the Popasnaya area, in the Lisichansk area, enemy manpower and equipment concentration areas were hit, and an American-made counter-battery radar was destroyed in the Zolote area.

Operational-tactical and army aviation continues to "iron" the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, striking at fortified areas, strongholds and places of concentration of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Among other things, an ammunition depot near the village of Glukhov was destroyed. Artillery and rocket troops throughout the night struck along the entire line of contact.

As a result of the strikes, up to 350 nationalists were destroyed, 56 units of military equipment were disabled. Also, in the Bogodukhov area, four Ukrainian installations of Smerch multiple launch rocket systems and one launcher of the S-300 anti-aircraft missile system were destroyed.

- stated in the message of the Ministry of Defense.
