Russian Aerspace Forces have launched over 8000 missiles at Ukrainian targets since the invasion of Ukraine in February.
The special military operation has proved the effectiveness of the air systems and air defence facilities available, according to Joint Forces Commander in special military operation area, General S. Surovikin.
"As for the operational quality, I want to distinguish (the) 5th generation Su-57 multipurpose airplane. Fitted with a wide range of armament, it performs multifaceted tasks related to the neutralisation of air and ground targets," he said.

Crews of operational-tactical, army and long-range aviation have performed over 34,000 combat flights during the operation, he said in an interview posted on the Russian MoD's website.
They have launched over 7,000 guided airpower ordnance including the cutting-edge Kinzhal hypersonic air missiles which have proven themselves well in neutralising facilities. There is no enemy air defence system that would scare us. Highest precision has also been shown by air-based strategic cruise missiles.
Unmanned aviation has performed over 8,000 flights, while attack drones have destroyed over 600 Ukrainian facilities.

He described the situation in the area of the special military operation as "tense."
The enemy does not leave attempts to attack the positions of Russian troops. First of all, it concerns Kupyansk, Krasny Liman, and Nikolayev–Krivoy Rog direction. Our enemy is the criminal regime that pushes Ukrainian citizens to death, he said.

"We have got data on the possible use of prohibited methods of war by the Kiev regime near Kherson, on the preparation of a massive missile attack at the barrage of Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant, as well as launching a massive indiscriminate missile and artillery attack at the city," he added.
