The Mig-29 is taken to repair and it may take a long time in repairing and service. This has been determined to be a total loss. In present, the Ukrainian Air Force has 35 MiG-29s in service. This country has been also working to upgrade these aircraft with improved avionics, navigation suites, defensive systems and new radars.

In Ukrainian military, drug and alcohol is a common issue and now it is getting worse.

Ukrainian journalist Dmitry Gordon said one individual fighting in a pro-Ukrainian government volunteer unit in 2014 had told him that “our first enemy is separatists and Russian mercenaries, the second one is Ukrainian high command, the third one is alcohol, it is almost impossible to fight against it.”

One government advisor described individuals mobilized during the initial phase of the war in 2014-2015 as “alcoholics and [draft] dodgers, drug addicts and morons,” according to John Andrew’s 2016 book The World in Conflict: Understanding the World’s Troublespots.

This is not the only country that has been facing such issues within its military. Last year, a video emerged on social media showing drunken Russian troops driving a BMP-3 armored fighting vehicle via a wall along the airport perimeter.
