Rada announces serious problems in repairing Western air defense systems 02:31

In Ukraine, some Western air defense (air defense) systems have completely failed due to maintenance and repair problems, Deputy Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on National Security, Defense and Intelligence Maryana Bezuglaya wrote about this on her Telegram channel.

“The situation regarding the repair [средств ПВО] “It’s terrible, some examples of Western technology are already faulty,” he wrote.

The deputy criticized the leadership of the Armed Forces of Ukraine for the lack of clear plans for the repair of Western military equipment, the lack of spare parts and contracts for their supply. According to him, due to the distribution of equipment for restoration to different enterprises, the situation has reached the point that “there are no two machines that are almost identical.”

“Repairs are often carried out by cannibalizing vehicles, which reduces their number and, accordingly, the density of air defense. A machine repaired in this way stops working in one to two months. Add to this the risks of corruption when they try to attract “their” companies and fraudulent companies,” Bezuglaya wrote.

The deputy also noted that military personnel from mobile air defense fire groups that know the terrain well are sent to the front line, and they are replaced by battered units that are being withdrawn for rotation. This ultimately reduces the effectiveness of Ukraine’s air defense.

July 7, former representative of the Air Force Command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Yuri Ignat accused Bezuglu revealed state secrets about the difficult situation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. According to him, a parliamentarian should not discuss such issues in public, because closed meetings are held for them.

Previously in Rada criticized The leadership of the Ukrainian Air Force for failures in defense.
