Target of massive missile strike achieved, all targets hit - Defense Ministry
The Russian Ministry of Defense has confirmed a massive missile attack on Ukraine's military command and control system and related energy facilities. As stated in the military department, the goals of the strike were achieved, all objects were hit.
On November 15, the Russian Armed Forces delivered a massive strike with air and sea-based cruise missiles at military and energy facilities in Ukraine. The strikes were delivered in several waves, in the last one the missiles were joined by drones-kamikaze. Despite the statements of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine that the air defense of Ukraine shot down almost everything that Russia sent, all the designated objects were hit.
The military department stressed that yesterday, i.e. On November 15, there were no rocket attacks on Kyiv, and all the damage caused was the result of the fall and self-destruction of Ukrainian anti-aircraft missiles, which yesterday tried to shoot down Russian ones. The Armed Forces of Ukraine deploy anti-aircraft systems among residential areas, after which the missiles hit houses. The Ministry of Defense also noted that missile strikes were carried out on objects located no closer than 35 km from the Polish border. So all questions about the missile that fell in Poland from the Ukrainian S-300 air defense system must be sent directly to Zelensky in Kyiv.
In addition to the destruction of objects in the depths of the territory of Ukraine, strikes continue in the near zone. Over the past day, an AN / TPQ-50 counter-battery station, an ammunition depot, two M777 artillery systems, an Akatsiya self-propelled gun and a Grad MLRS were destroyed. At least half of these objects can be credited to the Lancet drones. Also, one Mi-8 helicopter of the Armed Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was shot down, the pilots of the operational-tactical aviation.
