Russia has fired over 330 missiles and about 600 drones at Ukraine since beginning of year - Zelenskyy
President Volodymyr Zelenskyy claims that since the beginning of 2024, the Russian forces have fired more than 330 missiles of various types and about 600 drones at Ukraine
He wrote about this on the social network X.
"Russia has launched over 330 missiles of various types and approximately 600 combat drones at Ukrainian cities since the beginning of the year. To withstand such terrorist pressure, a sufficiently strong air shield is required. And this is the type of air shield we are building with our partners," Zelenskyy said.
According to him, control over Ukraine's skies is critical to ensuring security on the ground—from frontline positions to hospitals and schools in the rear. Air defense and electronic warfare are Ukraine's priorities, the President emphasized.
According to the Air Force, on the night of January 30, Russian troops launched 35 attack drones and two S-300 missiles at Ukraine. Air defense forces managed to destroy 15 Russian Shahed drones over 8 regions.
