Ukrainians Shot Down the Russian “Kinzhal” by “Patriot”

Previously it was believed that this hypersonic missile system is elusive and impossible to destroy

On May 4, during the Russian night attack against Ukraine, a Kinzhal missile complex flew out from the territory of Russia a Kh-47 missile on a MiG-31K fighter. Previously, Kinzhal was considered unconditionally deadly weapons since they cannot be shot down.

However, a historic event took place with the help of the Ukrainian defenders: with the help of the American Patriot air defence, the Kinzhal was identified and destroyed in flight. Glory to Ukraine!

"Yes, we shot down the "unparalleled" Kinzhal! This happened during a night attack on May 4 in the skies of the Kyiv region," lieutenant general commander of the Ukrainian Air Force Mykola Oleshchuk.

"Unparalleled" because that's what Russia calls its weapons before the Ukrainians destroy them.
