Russia launches air balloons to distract Ukraine’s air defense

Balloons with angled reflectors of radio waves were recorded in the airspace of Ukraine on February 14. It is already the second time they were recorded and, most likely, launched by Russia to distract Ukraine’s air defense, spokesman of Ukraine’s Air Force Yuriy Ihnat said.

The Ukrainian Air Defense radar observes these air targets moving in air streams at a low speed. Fighter aircraft are constantly on duty in the Ukrainian sky. The situation is under control,” Ihnat said.
