The Ukrainian army, which is preparing a major operation against the Russian invaders, destroyed the Kinzhal-Dagger missile, which Putin called ‘invincible’, with the American Patriot Air Defence system!
Ukraine has managed to liberate most of the territories occupied since the beginning of the war. Now Ukraine wants to liberate all its territories, including Crimea, from the occupiers.
The success achieved against the Russian occupiers is due to the military aid provided by Western and European states. Since last February 2022, NATO allies have provided Ukraine with 150 billion euros, 65 billion of which is military aid. This aid includes Patriot air defense systems, Leopard 2 and Challenger 2 tanks, HIMARS and howitzers, HARM, Javelin, JDAM missiles, and many state-of-the-art weapons and ammunition.
The importance of the aid is becoming more and more clear day by day. The Ukrainian army is dealing great blows to the Russian invaders with the weapons sent by the Western states. The Ukrainian army, which has previously carried out many operations with American-made Javelins, JDAM Missiles, HIMARS, and howitzers, has now made a remarkable operation with the Patriots.
The Ukrainian army destroyed the Kh-47 Kinzhal-Dagger hypersonic missile, one of Russia’s newest and most advanced weapons, which Putin introduced for the first time in March 2018 with Patriots and called ‘invincible’, in the skies over Kyiv. It was learned that the Ukrainian soldiers who shot down the hypersonic missile were Ukrainian soldiers trained in Oklahoma, USA.
The success of the Ukrainian army, which received Patriot systems for the first time at the end of April, became one of the most striking headlines in the world media. The images that started to circulate on social media were also confirmed by military experts.
“Yes, we shot down the unique Kinjal,” said Mykola Oleshchuk, commander of the Ukrainian Air Force.
The information announced by the Ukrainian army last week that the Russian hypersonic missile Kinzhal-Dagger was shot down by the American Patriot air defense systems was also confirmed by Washington.
