There are a few peculiarities: Air Force comments on Russia's latest massive missile strike on Ukraine

Air Force comments on the missile attack on Ukraine on December 8

During the missile attack on Ukraine on December 8, Russian troops used X-101/X-555 missiles: the enemy had been stockpiling them for some time. However, the attack also has some peculiarities. In particular, the fact that such missiles were used after a long pause, and that the enemy launched Shahed drones at night and several types of missiles in the morning.

This was stated by the spokesman for the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Yurii Ihnat on the air of Ukrainian Radio on Friday, December 8. He noted that at night the occupants launched drones at an infrastructure facility in the Dnipropetrovsk region, and in the morning they used missile weapons.

At the same time, the enemy combined them in different ways to reach the targets. Thus, the Russians first attacked with drones, then with X-101/X-555 cruise missiles, and then launched an Iskander-M ballistic missile.

"Another peculiarity is that they first hit the Dnipropetrovsk region with Shahed drones, an infrastructure facility. And then, in the morning, they fired missiles in the same direction. Unfortunately, they failed to destroy every one of them. It is clear that it is not always possible to achieve 100% results. Still, we have the result we have today: 14 out of 19. In addition, there was also the use of an Iskander-M ballistic missile, also in the direction of Dnipro," Ihnat noted.

According to him, there is nothing special in the fact that the enemy launched X-101/X-555 missiles during the shelling. The spokesman assured that nothing extraordinary happened as the occupants used the type of weapons they managed to accumulate.

"The peculiarity of this attack is that the missiles were used after a long pause. There was a lot of talk about this in the media, saying, 'When will strategic aviation strike?', that is, they were in such anticipation that it would happen someday. But nothing extraordinary happened here," Ihnat added.
