Anderson Cooper interviews a Ukrainian fighter pilot on standby between attacks

At Anderson Cooper 360 on Monday, Cooper interviewed Juice, a Ukrainian fighter pilot on standby, who was carrying his equipment and only went by his call sign to protect his identity. Juice said that while Russia is clinging to air superiority at the moment, losses are rising. “Russians have a lot of losses – losses, and they have a fear of our air defenses,” Juice said. “So they could not fly here just comfortable for them.” The United States continues to provide Ukraine with more defense systems, but has stopped the transfer of fighter jets from Poland, which would only find its way to Ukraine after passing through a US air base in Germany. Juice said they need more planes if they are to take control of the sky. “We need effective ground air defense systems,” Juice said, “and we need some other fighter jets to achieve air superiority to fight these threats effectively.” And Juice said he and others are ready to fight the continuing Russian war of aggression, but reiterated the need for more supplies. “We are all ready to fight, just with our jets, with our weapons, even just in the fields with rifles,” Juice said. “So our people, including me, we are ready to fight Russians, and we are ready to defend our country, to defend our people in absolutely every way. But we need tools, effective tools to do this effectively. . “
