Ukraine has been asking for fighter jets since the invasion began, but has yet to receive them / Russia says it has shot down more planes than Ukraine had on paper at the start of the war.
It should be noted that Russia claims to have shot down 387 planes, practically twice as many planes as Ukraine had on paper at the start of the war.
Although the exact number of military aircraft relied on by Ukraine at the beginning of the year is not officially described anywhere, there are plenty Information from open sources They said that Ukraine was on paper A maximum of 165 military aircraft.
However, the chances of them all working out were pretty slim, and in fact Ukraine had a lot to rely on. Fewer flights than on paper.
However, talks about helping Ukraine with fighter jets persisted Officer This has not happened yet, a huge disappointment for Ukrainians who have been clamoring for Western fighter jets since the early days of the war
At most it is known that Ukraine received spare parts and components to keep its own aircraft in flight condition.
There was much speculation in May about the possible transfer of 14 SU-25 aircraft from Bulgaria (the entire Bulgarian fleet of such aircraft), but the Ministry of Defense in Sofia He denied the informationAnd at some air shows last summer Part of the Su-25 aircraft Bulgarians can take photos. Another rumor claims that Macedonia donated four Su-25s, but this has not been officially confirmed. But not rejected by the Macedonian government.
No reliable information has yet emerged from the ground confirming the use of Ukrainian military aircraft.
The only aircraft Ukraine has received are helicopters.
