About For for some predictable reasons, the Russian air defense has already repeatedly eliminated its own aircraft over the Crimean Peninsula, writes NBN, citing the official X-account of the UK Ministry of Defense.

As British military intelligence analysts note, after a series of Ukrainian strikes against targets in Sevastopol, as well as ships and bases of the Black Sea Fleet this year, have almost certainly put local Russian air defenses on high alert.

In addition, the “fall” the specified Su-27, apparently, was provoked not at all by a technical problem, but by increased pressure and increased tension among Russian air defense operators.

In particular, regular downings of aircraft are certainly caused by fear of perceived Ukrainian actions, and lead to the Russians unintentionally engaging their own pilots and aircraft, and this, in turn, highlights the lack of awareness and lack of coordination between units of Putin's army.
