Starokostiantyniv airbase among Russian targets in latest missile attack

Russian missiles launched from the Caspian Sea, which entered Ukraine from the southeast, had an airbase near Starokostiantyniv, Khmelnytskyi region, as their ultimate target.

That’s according to Yuriy Ihnat, the spokesman for Ukraine’s Air Force, who spoke at the national telethon, Ukrinform reports.

"The enemy deploys various types of weapons. The main thing is that the missiles were launched from the Caspian Sea, first flew from the southeast, from the occupied territories, then headed for the Kharkiv region, then changed course to Dnipro, then from Dnipro to Kropyvnytskyi, Kirovohrad region and then flew on toward the intersection of the Vinnytsia, Mykolaiv, and Odesa regions and in the direction of Ternopil region and Lviv region. Over Lviv region, they made a U-turn, 180 degrees, and in the end targeted Khmelnytsky region, the Starokostiantyniv district," Ihnat said.

Ihnat emphasized that the Ukrainian air defense engaged the targets in multiple areas.
