On Sunday, the convoy was roughly 40 miles northwest of the Ukrainian capital, according to images provided by Maxar Technologies.

Ukrainian pilots are having to borrow fighters from other countries. That doesn’t sound like Ukraine air superiority to me.

17 mile long convoy. Hundreds of miles in to Ukraine.

What resistance have they met?

I’m sure a lot of old A-10 pilots are looking at those satellite images and salivating.

That is what I was thinking, to move a column like that you better have air superiority.

Couple A10 warthogs would have quite a time with a 17 mile long convoy.

We already know.

This convoy from hell has been within 100 miles of Kiev for 2 months. It’s always been in range of air power.

17 mile long convoy is a whole bunch of hardware to target.

Can’t miss.

Reports of air raids in all Western Ukrainian provinces just now. So that answer is pretty clear.

Either the Russians have air superiority or they have just made a terrible tactical decision. If the convoy is true then the Russians do have air superiority imho.

They used a drone to attack a smaller convoy over the weekend. Why not do the same again? Don’t understand why they’re waiting

According to the MSM propaganda campaign, the Russians are about done for. Putin is going to be removed by his own citizens and Zellensky is going to declare victory.

Truth being the major casualty in this War.

IIRC, Russia claimed to have air superiority this morning or last night sometime.

Note: claimed

“What resistance have they met?”

I dunno, but according to all the post-mortem texts sent by all the dead Russian soldiers killed by Samuyil Hyde and Fightin’ Miss Vodka 1987 using cookie cutters and nosehair tweezers as weapons, the entire Russian army is stuck on roadsides weeping in despair. True Chuck Norris fact, entered into the UN record.
