Two Russian Kalibr missiles downed over Vinnytsia region

Ukraine’s Air Force destroyed two Kalibr-type cruise missiles over the Vinnytsia region, which had been fired by Russian occupiers from the Black Sea.

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

“Around 01:00 p.m., July 26, 2023, the enemy fired Kalibr-type cruise missiles from the Black Sea. Presumably, the missiles were fired from a Russian submarine. The projectiles entered the airspace from the southeastern direction, changing course along the tracking route. Both missiles were shot down in the Vinnytsia region,” the report states.

Later, Ukraine’s Air Force warned that 12 Russian Tu-95MS strategic bombers had fired more missiles from the Caspian Sea. The air raid alert was expected to be announced in southern and eastern Ukraine around 05:40 p.m. (local time).
