Therefore, it is radar devices that detect them, and anti-aircraft missile systems and other firearms knock down," he explained.

"Using the riverbeds and those areas that the enemy scouts, where we may have certain weak points, strong points - this is all the enemy discovers. It conducts reconnaissance on the eve of the task of strikes, thus trying to avoid falling into the area of ​​action of our air defense," the spokesman added Air Force.
