Caught: Romania, a NATO ‘associate’ Faces Assault for Internet hosting Ukrainian Fight Plane

SVPressa: Anybody who roughly systematically follows the course of the particular operation of the Russian armed forces in Ukraine, I consider, couldn’t fail to see one oddity.

As early as March 6, 2022, the Ministry of Protection of the Russian Federation formally introduced that “virtually all combat-ready aviation of the Kiev regime has been destroyed.” And the event of occasions within the following days of March appeared to convincingly affirm this.

In keeping with the every day reviews of our protection division, till the start of April, if something our air protection was destroying within the sky over Ukraine, it was virtually completely reconnaissance and strike drones. Much less usually – fight and transport helicopters.

Air battles with the participation of Ukrainian plane within the reviews of the Russian Protection Ministry had been mentioned solely in distinctive instances. As, for instance, on March 28, when it was mentioned that two enemy front-line bombers and one assault plane had been shot down. Extra particularly, a pair of Su-24s is west of the village of Korosten within the Zhytomyr area. And one Su-25 – over the village of Druzhkovka within the Donetsk area. Then it went quiet once more.

However all of a sudden, because the starting of April, it broke by. The chronicle of battles within the skies of Ukraine within the following days is discouraging:

– On April 8, a Ukrainian Su-27 fighter jet was shot down by Russian air protection methods within the space of ​​​​the settlement of Novomikhailovka;

– On April 11, two Ukrainian Su-25 assault plane had been “demilitarized” close to the village of Izyum;

– On April 14, a Ukrainian MiG-29 fighter was destroyed on the Dnepr airfield;

– On April 15, a Su-27 fighter of the Ukrainian Air Power was shot down within the air close to the village of Lozovaya within the Kharkiv area;

– On April 16, a Ukrainian Su-25 assault plane was shot down 15 kilometers south of town of Izyum. On the identical day, a Ukrainian army transport plane was destroyed within the Odessa area, delivering a big batch of weapons provided to Ukraine by Western nations;

– On April 17, two Ukrainian MiG-29 fighter jets had been shot down close to the settlements of Fedorovka and Zavody within the Kharkiv area;

– On April 18, Russian air protection “landed” three enemy fight plane without delay: two MiG-29 fighters within the space of ​​u200bu200bthe settlement of Izyum and one Su-25 assault plane within the Avdeevka space;

– On April 19, one other enemy MiG-29 was shot down close to the village of Malinovka, Donetsk area.

That is if we discuss solely concerning the enemy’s losses of their plane. And what number of of them safely left, presumably, from underneath our hearth to their airfields?

In a phrase, all this by some means bears little resemblance to the “full destruction” of Kyiv’s army aviation. However how did Ukraine in some virtually legendary method all of a sudden “resurrect” by the tip of February virtually utterly destroyed, it appears, by us fighters and assault plane? Certainly, in the beginning of 2021, based on open sources, fight plane of their Air Power of this nation had been listed – the cat cried. Solely 26 Su-27s, 16 MiG-29s, 12 Su-24s and 13 Su-25s.

The place and who’s getting ready the “resurrected” automobiles for flights at present, if virtually all airfields in Ukraine have lengthy been blown to smithereens? The place do the rockets and bombs come from, what, day after day, because it seems, are hung underneath the wings? From what “subsoil” do they draw tons of gasoline for the flights that haven’t stopped within the final couple of weeks?

The reply, as usually occurs throughout this particular operation, got here from throughout the ocean. On April 19, Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby mentioned throughout one other briefing that “Ukrainian forces now have extra fighter jets at their disposal than they did two weeks in the past.” The place are the “wooden chips” from? From the “forest”, after all. Within the sense – from the dense NATO “forest”.

In keeping with the American rear admiral, the Western allies, regardless of repeated warnings from Moscow, have already begun deliveries to Kiev of Soviet-made fight plane and the required tools and ammunition for them.

They felt utterly unpunished: they robbed residences, broke down doorways and took away their final meals, which civilians so cherished for his or her households, Mariupol residents say.


We received’t even guess who precisely acted because the “donor” of the MiG-29 and Su-25, which now with yellow-blue “tridents” on the wings started to commonly and virtually out of nowhere once more seem over the battlefield. Poland, Bulgaria or Slovakia – what’s the distinction?

It might appear rather more logical to seek out out the methods and technique of deliveries to Ukraine, and new places for these machines. And those that are underneath the tutelage of the US are in all probability already on the way in which from the nations of Jap Europe. Naturally, to seek out out for the following disposal of such plane even at concrete parking heaps with our “Caliber” and “Iskander”.

However in actuality, it appears, not all the pieces is so easy. There’s motive to consider that the brand new assault plane and fighters of the Ukrainian military at present should not based mostly in Ukraine in any respect. Romania is alleged to have grow to be their present dwelling. Right here, from one or a number of of its airfields, the pilots of the “sq.” secretly take to the air to strike at Russian troops. Then they return there in the event that they had been fortunate to outlive after finishing the fight mission.

The itineraries of such flights are mentioned to be roughly the identical. At first, so as to not be detected by the radar services of the RF Armed Forces, at extraordinarily low altitudes over the Black Sea in direction of Odessa. After which from it – within the path of Nikolaev, Donetsk, Dnepropetrovsk, Zaporozhye , and so on.

Furthermore, about Romania – this isn’t simply somebody’s “couch” guesses. Though they appeared at present on the Internet. Particularly, within the weblog of Channel One TV host Ruslan Ostashko, who, as a result of his official place, positively has entry to data of a really delicate nature.

Elementary frequent sense means that the “new-old” fighters from Jap Europe merely have nowhere to switch to Ukraine. All army airfields of this nation, appropriate for flights of jet plane, have lengthy been erased into powder. And if a few of the runways Kiev manages to revive over time – within the situations of full dominance within the air of Russian aviation, it is not going to be lengthy to return it to its former unhappy state.

That’s, it’s positively unattainable for its fight pilots to fly at the very least regularly from Ukrainian soil. It stays – “overseas nations will assist us.” Romania appears to be one of the best match for this. Since there are not any air protection methods of the Russian Federation close to its borders with Ukraine. Solely on the ships of the Black Sea Fleet or within the Crimea.

By the way in which, for our army, the presence of enemy fight plane in Romania is just not new for a very long time. As early as March 6, 2022, at a briefing on the Ministry of Protection, it was reported that by that point the enemy had prudently despatched a part of its army plane to this nation. So as, after all, to guard them from our common assaults on Ukrainian airfields.

Already on that day, the protection division of the Russian Federation, clearly not by probability, thought-about it essential to formally warn Kyiv, and Bucharest, and Washington and even Brussels: using the Romanian airfield community for basing Ukrainian army aviation with subsequent use in opposition to the Russian Armed Forces “might be considered the involvement of the named nation in armed battle”. So, a month and a half in the past, Moscow didn’t rule out such a flip of occasions.

By the way in which, this model, if it quickly finds its public affirmation, will clarify quite a bit, because it appears, each in historical past and with the tragic demise of the Moskva guards missile cruiser. As a result of then it can grow to be clear what this ship, not utterly repaired in Sevastopol, was doing 100 kilometers from the seashores of Odessa?

First – concerning the technical situation of “Moscow” to his final day. It’s no secret – it was removed from one of the best. In affirmation, we recall that 4 years in the past, because of the impossibility of organizing a full-fledged restore of the cruiser, which was badly battered in earlier campaigns, the potential for writing it off “on pins and needles” was significantly mentioned.

Then, on the thirteenth shipyard in Sevastopol, the ship was patched up for 4 years. However to thoughts, apparently, solely the chassis of the “Moscow” was delivered to thoughts. In order that he might, on his personal, by some means stomp to Severodvinsk. The place would I stand for modernization following the instance of the identical kind of “Marshal Ustinov”.

Alas, this didn’t work out. Whether or not as a result of lack of funding, or because of the lack of free manufacturing capability in Severodvinsk. Consequently, in 2021, a barely alive ship was pushed out of Sevastopol into the ocean. However solely in Black. If the cruiser had been higher, it might definitely, as is normally the case, the identical one would have gone to army service within the Mediterranean.

Nevertheless, when there and round Ukraine “smelled of fried meals” on the finish of final yr, nobody dared to order the crew of the “Moskva” to comply with the Black Sea straits. As an alternative of the Black Sea flagship, the Pacific missile cruiser “Varyag” was overtaken to the shores of Syria from the Far East distant. Which continues to be there at present. “Moscow” was not entrusted with this mission as a result of, I consider, nobody wished to see how, by which case, the well-deserved cruiser must be returned to its dwelling base in a shameful tugboat.

After which our particular operation started. And “Moscow” discovered an important factor within the Black Sea. She was virtually definitely despatched to Odessa, primarily as a result of no different ship of the Black Sea Fleet has a radar system like hers. We’re speaking concerning the highly effective MR-710 Fregat-M radar, which made it attainable to trace intimately the flights of any plane at a distance of as much as 300 kilometers.

In different phrases, not solely over Ukraine and Moldova, but additionally over NATO’s Romania and Bulgaria. Within the mild of the wonderful transformation of Ukraine’s army aviation, which we’re speaking about at present, there was no value for such intelligence data.

Sadly, now, after the demise of the flagship, this work has grow to be rather more tough for us. Now all hope on this sense is on the 55Zh6M Nebo-M early warning radar stations, which had been put in within the Crimea upfront within the spring of 2018. With their assist, all airspace over the Black Sea is now underneath management. Proper as much as the Bosphorus Strait, since this radar detects any plane at a distance of as much as 600 kilometers.

Nevertheless, “Nebo-M” is outwardly unable to totally substitute the cruiser “Moskva”. For from the Crimea to Romania continues to be about 400 kilometers. To regulate flights of Ukrainian plane within the depths of the territory of this nation from the Crimean coast, Russia doesn’t have so many alternatives. Is it attainable to urgently switch the identical Nebo-M radar to the Snake Island, situated close to Odessa, which has been underneath our management for nearly two months.

However even this isn’t an important factor. The principle factor is what ought to we do with Romania, if the details about the start of using its air bases by Kyiv finds its irrefutable affirmation?
