Missile attack on the Ukrainian enterprise "Yuzhmash"


On the evening of July 15, during a Russian special operation on Ukrainian territory, the Russian Armed Forces launched a missile attack on the Yuzhmash plant in Dnipro (formerly Dnepropetrovsk). Footage taken by eyewitnesses from the scene appeared on the Web.


The video below shows how at least three cruise missiles hit the plant's buildings. Documented "arrivals" and the explosions that followed, the fires that arose and columns of smoke over the city. The sound in the video was removed due to the large amount of profanity.


The Ukrainian military claims that it was Russian strategic air-to-ground cruise missiles fired from the Stavropol Territory and the Caspian Sea by Tu-95 missile-carrying bombers of the Russian Aerospace Forces. As it was in fact, it will become known, probably, from the report of the Russian Ministry of Defense.

It should be noted that the State Enterprise “Production Association “Southern Machine-Building Plant” named after A. M. Makarov” (“Yuzhmash”) is a leading Ukrainian company in the rocket and space industry, which has serious technological and other competencies in this area. Yuzhmash produces a wide range of products. For example, they manufacture the main structures of the 1st stage of the American Antares launch vehicle, make racks for An-178-100R aircraft under a contract with the Antonov State Enterprise, produce RD-843 engines for the 4th stage of the European launch vehicle. Vega, are producing Zenit launch vehicles for the Sea Launch and Land Launch programs, have created for Firefly Aerospace (USA) an overall docking layout of the first stage of the Beta launch vehicle, the development of Ukrainian ground operational-tactical missile systems (OTRK) "Sapsan".

    This is a very important blow. It is necessary to destroy the military-economic infrastructure and communications of the enemy.

      Wouldn't it be easier to take it for yourself?
      This is another confirmation that Putin is not going to liberate Dnepropetrovsk

        And why do we need this enterprise, what can it give us at the present time, given its state and potential, but for the criminal Kyiv regime right now it produces missiles and various components for their manufacture, and then Dnepropetrovsk has not yet been liberated, it’s not a fact that the Nazis will give us the opportunity to free Yuzhmash leaving it safe and sound.

        pick up what? a garage cooperative in which Russian-trained "specialists" assembled Russian-designed missiles from Russian components? banana republics should collect bananas, not rockets.

        for "experts" in the plans of the General Staff, graduates of military academies at the beginning said that all sorts of Odessa, Kharkov and Dnepropetrovsk go through the forest ... but "experts" until they stick their noses into their "good" will not understand ...

    It should have been destroyed much earlier, given its importance to Ukraine and the West. I think it's better late than never.

      similar question laughing phrases taken out of context and about a hut in Switzerland ... from there it is convenient to decide with Western money what the Russian people need and which monkey to remove from the donkey. Gathered a bunch of losers and forelocks dreaming of a freebie from the times of the USSR. you can send to the bath. and so it is clear that your time and your fans is up. it will be more painful.
