Ukraine’s air defense destroys 3 cruise missiles launched by Su-35 fighters from Belarus

On the night of April 5, two Russian Su-35 fighters launched cruise missiles into Ukraine from the territory of Belarus, but the Ukrainian air defense intercepted the missiles.

“Russcists could have been aiming at civilian infrastructure in several western regions,” the Air Command "West" posted on Facebook, Ukrinform reports.

Three cruise missiles were destroyed by anti-aircraft systems, and the fourth one was damaged, which prevented it from hitting the target accurately.

The enemy aimed missiles and conducted reconnaissance of the strike results by two operational-tactical UAVs, which were also destroyed by anti-aircraft missile units of the Air Command “West”.

On February 24, Russian president Putin started a large-scale invasion of Ukraine. Russian troops shell and destroy infrastructure, massively fire on the residential areas of Ukrainian cities, towns, and villages using artillery, MLRS, and ballistic missiles.
