Russia launches six Kinzhal cruise missiles at Ukraine for the first time

During a massive missile attack on Ukraine on the night of March 9, the terrorist state of Russia launched six Kinzhal hypersonic aero-ballistic air-to-surface missiles. The Ukrainian Air Force emphasized that the enemy had changed its tactics.

Previously, the enemy had not used such a large number of these missiles during the shelling of Ukraine. The spokesman for the Ukrainian Air Force, Yurii Ihnat, reported about it on Channel 24.

According to him, during the large-scale attack, the enemy used various missiles, as well as Iranian-made kamikaze drones. Yurii Ihnat emphasized that the terrorist country had never launched such an attack before.

"The attack is really large-scale and for the first time with missiles of this type. This time we see as many as 6 "Kinzhal" cruise missiles. I don't recall such an attack before. Different aircraft were used. As of today, we have a total of 81 missile launches," Ihnat said.

In addition, the aggressor has launched many missiles at Ukraine, which the available air defense systems are not yet able to counter. At the same time, Ukrainian defenders shot down most of the Kh-101/Kh-555 and Kalibr cruise missiles.

"We can't shoot down Kh-22 missiles, we can't shoot down Kinzhal missiles, and we can't shoot down S-300 missiles either. We have no means to counter these weapons, so they pose a danger to us. In total, 34 out of 48 cruise missiles were shot down, and 4 out of 8 Shahed UAVs," the Air Force spokesman added.

As a reminder, on the night of March 9, Russia massively attacked Ukraine with Shahed kamikaze drones and missiles, resulting in strikes to power facilities, injuries, and deaths.

Earlier, it was reported that on the night of March 9, Ukrainian defenders shot down 34 Russian missiles and 4 Iranian-made kamikaze drones, which the occupiers used to attack a number of regions. In total, the enemy launched 81 missiles of various types.

During a massive missile attack on the night of March 9 in the Lviv region, a rocket landed in a residential area. As a result of the actions of the Russians, civilians have died.

As OBOZREVATEL reported, at about 5:50 a.m. and after 7:00 a.m., powerful explosions occurred in Kyiv: with the first one, smoke arose into the sky above the impact site, and with the second, cars near a high-rise building caught fire.

For that matter, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy reacted to another war crime by Russia, which launched a massive drone and missile attack on Ukraine on the night of March 9. He emphasized that the aggressor launched 81 missiles of various types and launched kamikaze drones to terrorize civilians.
