Russia Not Using Aircraft Creates ‘Vast Losses’ for Putin: Ukraine General

Russia’s “refusal” to use military aircraft in its war against Ukraine is resulting in “vast losses” for President Vladimir Putin, according to Valeriy Zaluzhnyy, commander in chief of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

Zaluzhnyy said Friday in a Telegram post that during a call with General Mark Milley, chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, he “emphasized the enemy’s continued use of strategic cruise missiles.”

“On a daily basis, the enemy fires 10 to 14 cruise missiles at civilian infrastructure facilities,” Zaluzhnyy wrote, according to a translation of the post. “Recently, Russia has resorted to the tactics of massive use of supersonic anti-ship cruise missiles of the Kh-22 type on these facilities. Thus, last day at the Kremenchuk oil refinery, the enemy used 12 cruise missiles, two of which we managed to shoot down with Stinger MANPADS.”
