Russian-Ukrainian conflict will affect defense system: Prasetyo
Jakarta (ANTARA) – Air Force Chief of Staff Marshal Fadjar Prasetyo said the Russian-Ukrainian conflict will affect Indonesia’s main weapons system (Alutsista), for which purchases were made to Russia.
“Of course, this will not only affect Russia’s equipment, but the whole world is now studying possible changes due to this conflict,” Prasetyo said after the 2022 Indonesian Air Force leadership meeting at the Cilangkap headquarters, here on Friday.
He said that currently Indonesia has a lot of defense equipment from Russia.

However, spare parts for Sukhoi fighter jets purchased from Russia are still guaranteed through a long-term cooperation program, he noted.
“In aeronautical maintenance, we do this for the long term. So, we bought spare parts some time ago,” he added.
The Indonesian Air Force, he said, will continue to monitor the situation in Russia and Ukraine.
