About half of Russian missiles, according to Ukraine, were intercepted.

In the strike on February 16, the Ukrainian Air Force claimed to have shot down 16 of the 36 Russian missiles that were launched, a much lower percentage than in earlier conflicts.

According to the Ukrainian Air Force Command, Russia carried out a significant ambush on February 16 before daybreak with 12 Kh-101 and Kh-555 cruise missiles launched from T-95MS strategic bombers and 8 Kalibrs from warships. a P-800 Oniks with twelve Kh-22 supersonic anti-ship missiles over the Black Sea. Two Kh-59 long-range surface-to-surface missiles and one Kh-31P anti-radar missile were also fired by the Su-35S.

“Two Kh-59 projectiles and 14 Kh-101, Kh-555, and Kalibr cruise missiles were intercepted. Regrettably, some Kh-22 rockets strike targets in the infrastructure. The Ukrainian military now lacks any equipment capable of intercepting Kh-22 missiles “The Ukrainian Air Force issued a statement.

In an effort to defend against this onslaught, Ukraine’s air defense shot down roughly 50% of Russian missiles, a marked decrease from the above 80% level previously provided by this nation in air strikes.

The Russian Ministry of Defense has not responded to the information.

Russia has fired 210 Kh-22 cruise missiles at Ukraine since the start of the conflict, according to Yuri Ignat, a spokesman for the Ukrainian air force, but none have been shot down. “Even the most advanced systems we have, like the S-300, are unable to intercept this kind of missile. The claim that the Kh-22 missile was shot down by Ukraine’s air defense is false “He confessed.
