Some Kinzhal missiles miss targets in morning attack - Ukraine's Air Force
Ukrainian Air Force spokesperson Yuriy Ihnat said that during the Russian morning attack on January 13, half of Russia's Kinzhal airborne ballistic missiles missed their targets
Ihnat said this during the telethon.
"We saw six Kinzhals today, we reported them... Half of them definitely missed their targets - I am 100% sure," the spokesman said.
Ihnat clarified that a total of more than 20 air missiles, in addition to the eight that were shot down, did not reach their targets. They either fell in the field, were hit by Ukrainian electronic warfare or exploded in the air.
"The Russian missiles not only face resistance from the Ukrainian Air Force but are also increasingly flying less accurately to their ‘targets,' as they claim. We observe a deterioration. The missiles become less effective and fail to reach their intended targets. Perhaps, this also applies to 'kamikaze' drones. We hope such a trend will continue," said the spokesperson for the Ukrainian Air Force.
- At night and in the morning of January 13, Russian troops attacked Ukraine with various types of missiles and drones. Air defense forces managed to destroy 8 Russian cruise missiles.
