Reznikov: Ukrainian military uses Storm Shadow missiles with 100% efficiency

The Ukrainian military uses Storm Shadow long-range missiles with 100% efficiency.

"Out of the total number of Storm Shadow launches that have already taken place, all 100% hit the targets set by the General Staff," Minister of Defense of Ukraine Oleksii Reznikov said during the United News telethon.

Reznikov added that during a meeting with his British colleague Ben Wallace last week, he introduced to Wallace two Ukrainian pilots who used Storm Shadow missiles. According to the minister, the pilots gave Wallace a red tape that fixes a missile before launch as a souvenir.

As reported, on May 11, Ben Wallace confirmed the UK’s transfer of Storm Shadow long-range missiles to Ukraine.

Storm Shadow is a long-range cruise missile developed jointly by the UK and France. It is usually launched from the air. With a range of more than 250 km (155 miles), it is only slightly inferior to the 185-mile range of the US-made surface-to-surface Army Tactical Missile Systems, or ATACMS.
