I joined Times Radio’s Rosie Wright on Friday to analyze the imminent supply of fighter jets to Ukraine, beginning with Poland and Slovakia, and how the development will further challenge Russia’s troubled invasion.
We begin with a review of the Russian downing of a US drone over the Black Sea, and how the incident points to Moscow’s weakness and a sense of desperation.
On the drone incident:
The Russians are stalled in eastern Ukraine in a last-gasp offensive. They know that Ukraine is getting more equipment, including the fighter jets. They know there is a narrowing window where they can seek aerial superiority even as they lose superiority on the ground.
