The command center of the Air Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine has updated information on a missile attack launched on Vinnytsia today.

In particular, eight missiles were launched by strategic bombers, Tu-95ms and Tu-160.

The relevant statement was made by the Air Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on Facebook, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“According to the updated information, eight missiles, presumably X-101, which have a long range, up to 5,500 kilometers, were launched by strategic bombers, Tu-95ms and Tu-160, from the Black Sea area,” the report states.

A reminder that the Vinnytsia airfield was used for military and civil purposes. The runway had been under renovation for a long time and, thus, there was no aviation equipment within the airfield. Casualties among civilians and the military are yet to be reported.
