Then I understood correctly, thanks guys.
There is another reason, friendly fire.
Currently the Ukrainian AD are almost certainly operating as individual units on on a spot a plane in the sky, shoot, scoot to new location basis. They are able to do this as they expect, unless they get specific orders or IFF works only RuAF flying.
If there is a mix of NATO and RuAF in the sky accidents will happen as I can't see NATO releasing their IFF even if the UkAD was able to read it or flight plans which would be subject to change at any moment.
The UK Defence Minister eluded to this kind of problem as a reason not to.
