Particularly noteworthy are the A-50 and A-50U, which is an airborne radar, a long-range radar detection aircraft that helps to monitor the radar situation deep inside our country.

Of course, this will reduce the enemy's capabilities. Although they persist in doing so, the enemy will refrain from employing its aircraft near the combat line and our borders for a while. russian pilots are now keeping a greater distance than before," Ihnat explained.

He commented on the downing of the A-50 aircraft by the Ukrainian Defense Forces, pointing out that "it hasn't been seen in the airspace for three days now."
