Soldiers of the Kherson anti-aircraft missile brigade destroyed a Russian cruise missile. On March 10, the Pivden Air Command posted a corresponding video on Facebook.
The Russian missile, which followed outside the Ukrainian positions, was destroyed. The Air Force demonstrated the elimination of a Russian cruise missile in the southern direction during a massive enemy attack on March 9, 2023. In the video, a cruise missile was shot down over the sea.
“Defending Ukraine is the highest honor for us!” the Pivden Air Command said in a statement.
Ukrainian air defense has demonstrated high efficiency in shooting down Russian missiles. Anti-aircraft gunners hope that additional supplies of new weapons from the allies will strengthen the protection of the sky. Saturation with modern weapons with already modernized Soviet systems will increase the chances of confronting the Russian aviation component.
Recall, on March 9, Russia launched 81 missiles of various types in Ukraine, air defense shot down 34 out of 48 cruise missiles. Ukrainian troops also destroyed 4 Shahed-136/131 UAVs. Several missiles reached their target and fell on civilian infrastructure in different areas of our state.
The energy industry also suffered as a result of the missile attack, as the invaders attacked three thermal power plants. The technical equipment of the substations was seriously damaged, but after the end of the air raid, the local power engineers immediately began to eliminate the consequences of the hits. On the territory of the Ukrainian capital, during a missile attack, the occupiers used the Kinzhal hypersonic missile, the Kyiv City State Administration reported. The duration of the attacks on the capital was more than 7 hours. Thanks to the work of the Ukrainian air defense, large-scale attacks by cruise missiles and UAVs on the capital were not allowed. There is one hit by the “Dagger” in the infrastructure. These rare missiles were almost never used by Russian troops during the entire period of the war against Ukraine.
