Defense forces destroy several Russian air defense systems in Crimea

On the night of June 10, the Ukrainian Defence Forces successfully attacked the occupiers' S-400 anti-aircraft missile division near Dzhankoy, as well as two enemy S-300 anti-aircraft missile divisions near Chornomorske and Yevpatoria.

This was reported by the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. 

As stated in the report, in these areas, after the strikes of Ukrainian missile launchers, the radars of the S-300/S-400 complexes stopped working. In addition, further detonation of ammunition took place in all three areas of the starting positions of Russian anti-aircraft missile divisions.

"Putin is furious": Ukraine's intelligence describes Kremlin's reaction to targeted Su-57

A representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate of Ukraine, Andriy Yusov, said that the Kremlin's reaction was "hot and strong" after the Russian Su-57 fighter jet had been targeted

He said this during a national telethon.

Yusov made it clear that Ukrainian intelligence can confirm the fact that the Su-57 was targeted in Russia, but the operation itself, he said, can be neither confirmed nor denied.

"But yes, it's great news: Putin is really furious, and the reaction in the Kremlin is very hot and tangible. Because they tried to carefully hide and protect the Su-57s. And these Su-57s never entered the airspace of Ukraine - they were afraid of being shot down," the intelligence representative said.

He added that the Russian occupation army intentionally exaggerated the characteristics of the fighter jet to sell it and to be present on the international arms market. In particular, the aircraft was also used for missile attacks on Ukrainian civilian targets, and therefore the punishment was deserved.

In addition, Yusov stated that he had information about the destruction of two Su-57s, as well as the deaths and injuries of Russian troops. At the same time, Russia's information field has so far confirmed that only one warplane had been hit.
