Putin’s forces have failed to destroy Ukraine’s air force leaving Kyiv in control of the skies, says UK

Vladimir Putin’s forces have failed to “effectively destroy” Ukraine’s Air Force leaving Volodymyr Zelensky’s government in control of the majority of the country’s airspace, British defence chiefs said on Wednesday.Ukraine’s air defences have also not been “suppressed” by Mr Putin’s invasion, which was launched on February 24, leaving Russian planes and helicopters flying over the country “at risk”.These failures meant Russian air activity is “primarily focused” on the south and east of the country, with “very limited air access” in the north and the west.They were also limiting Russia’s ability to carry out “deep strikes” into Ukraine.
