KYIV ($1=36.90 Ukrainian Hryvnias) — On November 17, BulgarianMilitary.com wrote that American-Norwegian NASAMS interceptors are operationally ready in Ukraine. They fall, according to the latest open data. The information about the readiness of NASAMS was confirmed by the Secretary of Defense of the United States, Mr. Lloyd Austin, said in his speech this Wednesday, November 16th. Austin also added that NASAMS had a 100% success rate in Ukraine. Confirmation of the deployment of NASAMS to Ukraine and the start of their work there was also given by Pat Ryder, who is a spokesperson for the US Department of Defense. “The [NASAMS] systems are now in Ukraine and operational,” Ryder said during a press briefing.

Today, November 19, a Twitter account, announced that NASAMS had hit the Russian flagship, the Su-35S fighter jet. A video shared on social media claims this. “The moment of the shooting down of the latest and most technological Russian Su 35C fighter with the help of the Norwegian Nasams complex in the Bakhmut area. The pilot ejected but did not survive,” said the published tweet accompanying the video.

The video shows a falling blimp engulfed in flames. The video does not show the moment of the impact, nor whether it was an aircraft, and whether it was the Su-35S. BulgarianMilitary.com cannot confirm the truth of the claims. However, if they turn out to be true, this will be the next [fourth] downed Su-35S since the beginning of the war in Ukraine. It is the most successful Russian combat aircraft, according to several Russian experts.

2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine

On 21 February 2022, the Russian government claimed that Ukrainian shelling had destroyed an FSB border facility on the Russia Ukraine border. Moscow also claimed that it had killed 5 Ukrainian soldiers who tried to cross into Russian territory. Ukraine denied being involved in both incidents and called them a false flag.

On the same day, the Russian government formally recognized the self-proclaimed DPR and LPR as independent states. According to Putin not only in their de-facto controlled areas, but the Ukrainian Oblasts as a whole. Putin ordered Russian troops, including tanks, to enter the regions.

On 24 February 2022, Putin ordered an invasion of Ukraine by Russian Armed Forces previously concentrated along the border. The invasion followed by targeted airstrikes of military buildings in the country. The invasion followed also by targeted tanks entering via Belarus border.

Russia has so far not recognized the invasion of Ukraine as a “war”, although that is exactly what it is, claiming that it is a “special military operation”. According to the UN, in which Russia has its permanent representation, for military action to be defined as a “special military operation”, it must have a resolution issued by the UN. There is no such resolution, which automatically defines the military actions of the Russians as an invasion and war against the citizens of Ukraine.
