Falling in the Belgorod region: why some Russian missiles do not reach Ukraine
Air defense forces are not yet able to shoot down Russian ballistic missiles due to the lack of appropriate means. The occupiers use S-300 air defense systems to terrorize front-line cities, but not all missiles reach Ukraine.
The speaker of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Yuri Ignat , in an interview with Channel 24 , said that the Russians use S-300 missiles against ground targets in the frontline zone at a distance of up to 150 km.
Russians don't test their old missiles
According to him, the greater the distance from the launch site, the greater the inaccuracy. Therefore, as Ignat says, these missiles often do not hit where they wanted, as a result of which civilians die.
“In this application, it is nothing more than a weapon of terrorism,” Ignat said.
At the same time, he noted that some Russian anti-aircraft missiles do not reach Ukraine and fall, for example, in the Belgorod region. Ignat named several reasons why this is happening.
What is happening in Russia – anti-aircraft missiles with which they fire at us fall in the Belgorod region. That is, missiles do not even reach the borders. This is probably due, in part, to the fact that the Russians do not test their old missiles. Perhaps self-liquidators are working or something is wrong with the rocket fuel,” the speaker of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine explained.
Russia terrorizes Ukrainian cities with S-300 shelling
It should be noted that Kharkiv, Mykolaiv, Zaporozhye and Donetsk regions suffer the most from rocket attacks from the S-300. So, on March 18, Russia again attacked the peaceful infrastructure of Zaporozhye.
S-300 missiles were sent to the territory of one of the residential complexes. The shells hit one of the objects of the complex. The blast wave and debris damaged nearby residential apartment buildings: facades, windows, roofs.
On the night of March 2, the Russian occupiers also launched a missile attack on Zaporozhye from S-300s. The enemy hit a multi-story building, causing part of the building to collapse.
The State Emergency Service reported that the death toll from the missile attack was 13 people.
