British intelligence reports that the latest attack on Russian targets located at the Saki airfield in Crimea, as well as in Sevastopol, indicates the ineffectiveness of the Russian Federation's air defense in protecting key locations.
As NBN reports , this is stated in the material of “European Pravda” with reference to the intelligence review of the British Ministry of Defense dated January 9.
This once again demonstrates the ineffectiveness of Russian air defense in protecting key locations, despite their increased readiness. In all likelihood, the scale of the Russian response is an indication of the success that the Ukrainian Armed Forces achieved in the January 4 attacks.
Among other things, British intelligence added that such attacks appeared to have “reduced awareness and coverage of Russian air defense over the Autonomous Republic of Crimea.”
Intelligence of the United Kingdom believes that the response to all this was a series of Russian missile attacks against the Ukrainian state on January 8, when the aggressor, among other things, hit Zaporozhye and Krivoy Rog.
