Pentagon: Russia is trying to exhaust Ukraine's air defenses

Russia’s increase in missile strikes in Ukraine is designed in part to deplete Ukraine’s air defense supplies, which Moscow hopes will allow its forces to achieve dominance in the skies above the country, a senior Pentagon official said on Saturday.

“They are really trying to overwhelm and wear out Ukrainian air defense systems,” Colin Kahl, the undersecretary of defense for policy, told reporters during a trip to the Middle East.

“We know what the Russian theory of victory is and we are committed to making sure that doesn’t work by ensuring that the Ukrainians get what they need to keep their air defenses viable,” he added.
