Ukrainian Air Force destroys two cruise missiles over past day

The Ukrainian Air Force destroyed five Orlan-10 UAVs, two cruise missiles and ten light armored vehicles on Wednesday, May 25.

According to Ukrinform, the Command of the Ukrainian Air Force said this on Facebook.

"On May 25, the occupiers continued to fire cruise missiles at Ukraine. At about 20:00, Tu-22M3 long-range bombers launched missile strikes from Russian territory at groups of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the Donetsk and Luhansk directions. The occupiers also fired missiles at Ukraine from the southern direction. Two cruise missiles were intercepted and destroyed by fighter jets of the Ukrainian Air Force," the statement said.

Ukrainian aircraft also destroyed a company tactical group, manpower and about ten light armored vehicles.

In addition, the air defense units of the Ukrainian Ground Forces and the anti-aircraft missile forces of the Ukrainian Air Force shot down five Orlan-10 UAVs.

According to the statement, Russia's air presence around Ukraine's borders is growing, but the invaders' aircraft almost do not enter the airspace controlled by Ukrainian air defense forces.

Earlier reports said that Ukraine's Armed Forces killed about 29,450 Russian soldiers between February 24 and May 25.
