Ukrainian Air Force spokesman Yuriy Ihnat said on February 22 that, since launching a `special military operation` in Ukraine two years ago, Russia has launched a total of more than 8,000 missiles and about 4,630 drones.

These missiles belong to many types, including ballistic missiles and hypersonic cruise missiles.

In addition to missiles, Moscow is also increasingly using UAVs for attacks.

These missiles and UAVs target targets such as weapons and ammunition depots, energy infrastructure, and production facilities.

Mr. Ihnat said Ukraine’s small mobile UAV hunting teams took down most of the UAVs, including the Iranian-made Shahed.

Ukraine’s air defense system has been significantly improved after Kiev received modern Western air defense systems such as the US Patriot.

The Russia-Ukraine conflict broke out in February 2022.

The West has continuously provided aid to Ukraine since the conflict broke out.

Slowing aid flows are causing significant disadvantages for Ukraine on the battlefield.

Secretary of the National Defense and Security Council of Ukraine Aleksey Danilov on February 22 called on the European Union (EU) to provide all heavy weapons to Ukraine.

`We have extensive experience and we understand that Europe will not need guns, tanks, infantry fighting vehicles and other equipment for the next war. They should give us all their aid like

Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen announced last week that the country would transfer all artillery shells to Ukraine.

`We decided to donate all of our country’s artillery. I know there are ammunition in warehouses in Europe. This is not just a production problem. We have weapons, ammunition, air defense systems that we don’t need.`

In addition, Ms. Frederiksen said that Denmark will soon deliver F-16 fighters to Ukraine and is still looking for more partners to provide this advanced fighter aircraft.

Mr. Danilov affirmed that if there is more weapon aid from the West, Ukraine will ensure that Russia is no longer a `threat` to EU and NATO members.
