It should be noted that according to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, last night, the occupiers launched 10 ballistic missiles at the Ukrainian capital, including S-400 anti-aircraft guided missiles and Iskander cruise missiles.

The Ukrainian air defense forces destroyed all the missiles. The consequences of the attack are being clarified.

It is known that only PATRIOT and SAMP/T systems, of which there are only four in Ukraine, can shoot down ballistic missiles.

As the head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, Andrii Yermak, clarified on Telegram, the enemy could have struck Kyiv with 48N6 missiles from the S400 complex.

"The Russians targeted a critical infrastructure facility. We know what they are trying to hit," the head of the OP added.
