Armed Forces of Ukraine: during a night strike, the Russian Armed Forces used Iskander-K missiles, against which air defense is powerless

The speaker of the command of the Ukrainian Air Force, Yuriy Ignat, announced the use of missiles by the Russian army, which the Ukrainian air defense is unable to shoot down. He stated this when commenting on the nighttime missile attack of the RF Armed Forces on military facilities.

We are talking about Iskander-K missiles. This is also a cruise missile, which, in principle, has the same performance characteristics as the Caliber, but the Iskander-K is a land-based, not sea-based missile. These missiles are very difficult to shoot down because they fly very low, making it difficult to detect, although there have been cases of destruction by air defenses.

Ignat said.

He added that only the supply of Western fighters would allow the Ukrainian military to withstand Russian attacks.

From ourselves, we note that the 9M728 (R-500) missile, as well as the 3M14 Caliber, do not differ in flight altitude and represent an air defense target of equal complexity. What Ignat meant is hard to guess.

Recall that last night the RF Armed Forces launched a missile attack on enemy military facilities. The incorrect work of the air defense crews of the Armed Forces of Ukraine once again led to human victims among civilians.

    Now you can no longer bother with civilian casualties in Dill. If their preZik refused to save the dill from extinction, it means to destroy it in such a way as to free everything up to the Dnieper from the dill. And drive the banderlogs to Lviv, all of them - and throw something more powerful there
