The main target was the carrier aircraft of long-range missiles of NATO countries, experts sayThe armed forces of the Russian Federation on the night of May 29 struck a group of enemy airfields — the targets were command posts, radar posts and aviation equipment, storage facilities with weapons and ammunition of the VFU, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reported.

Experts note that our troops are now disabling the remnants of the Ukrainian air force. In particular, carrier planes of long-range missiles supplied to Ukraine by NATO countries and of particular value to the enemy were hit. The task of constant and massive strikes is to exhaust the VFU, disable their air component, logistics, control points and communications, experts are sure.

Impact for airfields

On the night of May 29, the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation launched a group attack on enemy targets at airfields. At the same time, high-precision long-range air-based weapons were used, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reported.

— The target of the strike has been achieved. All designated facilities have been destroyed," said the official representative of the Russian Defense Ministry, Lieutenant General Igor Konashenkov.

According to him, as a result of the strike, command posts, radar posts and aviation equipment, storage facilities with weapons and ammunition of the VFU were hit.

As sources familiar with the situation told Izvestia, several aircraft converted for the use of Western aviation weapons, including cruise missiles and adjustable aerial bombs, were destroyed during the strikes. Command centers and communication centers providing flights of these aircraft were also hit. In addition, the strike was carried out on the storage sites of foreign aviation weapons transferred to Kiev.

The armed forces of the Russian Federation need to disable the remnants of the Ukrainian air force, including those aircraft that can carry British-made cruise missiles," military expert Vasily Dandykin told Izvestia.

— In addition, there was another Patriot complex in the area of the Zhuliany airfield. Apparently, he was also hit. This is due to the fact that, of course, we are on the defensive, but we are thinking about the offensive," he said. — Now it is necessary to exhaust the enemy, disable its air component, logistics, control points, communications. This has been going on for two weeks and will continue. The hysteria of the head of Ukrainian intelligence Kirill Budanov after the latest strikes suggests that all this is happening effectively.

Invisible tanks

There are persistent battles going on in the Avdiivka direction in the DPR. The military commander of Izvestia, Valentin Trushnin, looked at the combat work of our troops.

The commander of a platoon of T-80 tanks with the call sign Granite tells about the latest battles and shows recordings of the destruction of militants.

— A blow — and the projectile hits almost the entrance. The second tankers "fold" the building, — said Valentin Trushnin.

Another video shows a Ukrainian fortified area in Maryinka. The infantry runs from the house to the trenches. Our tank hits from seven kilometers away and the shells explode literally a couple of meters from the enemy.

— We worked out literally two ammunition sets from closed firing positions, completely destroyed the landing, all the buildings, – Granit explained in the video.

Our tankers are now shooting no worse than snipers.

— We shoot with a flat trajectory, the accuracy is higher. Deviations are 5-10 meters by 8-10 kilometers," the platoon commander explained.

Meanwhile, special camouflage nets — the "Cape" complexes - began to appear more and more often in tank units. They make cars invisible — they reduce the thermal and radio emission of tanks.

There is also protection from copters and kamikaze drones of the enemy. A steel frame is welded onto the tanks, a metal mesh is stretched over it.

— Modern armed conflicts require modernization of tanks, so such tuning is now being done on all combat vehicles, — said Granit.

Our infantry also became more cautious. She does not move in columns, carefully disguises herself, listens to the sky and quickly dissolves on the ground if an enemy drone hovers over her.

Another rule written in blood is that you have to be active even in defense.

An easel grenade launcher is a pocket artillery of infantry. The enemy is 800 meters away here. The calculation has only a few minutes to show up, shoot back and leave.

— There is such a situation on the front line: if you show weakness, then the enemy will go through your positions, — says Valentin Trushnin.

Near Donetsk, as well as on other sections of the line of contact, enemy forces are accumulating. A blow from Avdiivka is not excluded. But our troops are ready for such a development, the correspondent said.

Hunting for saboteurs

On May 29, at least 425 people and 32 units of military equipment, including howitzers, self-propelled guns and armored vehicles, were lost in the special operation zone in all strategic directions of the VFU, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reported.

In the Kharkiv region and the LPR, the actions of two Ukrainian sabotage and reconnaissance groups were suppressed.

In the Kherson region, a hangar with weapons and military equipment of the 126th brigade of the territorial Defense was hit. In the area of Avdiivka in the DPR, the command and observation post of the unit and the depot of rocket and artillery weapons of the 110th mechanized brigade of the VFU were hit. Russian air defense intercepted three Storm Shadow cruise missiles during the day.
