Ignat added that the Russian Federation attacked Ukraine with Tu-22 aircraft from Shaykovka and Mozdok airfields.

According to him, the air defense was operating in the areas where the missiles were flying.

He noted that launches of S-300 or S-400 missiles in the Zaporizhzhia and Dnipro regions were also recorded. Thus, the enemy continues to launch anti-aircraft-guided missiles on a ballistic trajectory.

“Actually, if we add the Kalibr from the Black Sea, we managed to destroy 16 of the 24 cruise missiles that we can shoot down with conventional means. Unfortunately, we failed to destroy missiles from Tu-22 Kh-22 aircraft. These are missiles that attack by ballistic trajectory,” Ignat added.
