“For the first time the enemy used Tu-22M3 long-range bombers to attack Ukraine from the territory of Belarus.

“Also, it has resumed the use of Iskander missile systems from the territory of this country,” they said on Facebook.

Russia also launched Kalibr cruise missiles from the Black Sea at targets in the western regions of Ukraine causing mass devastation.

In the northern direction, Russian forces fired X-22 missiles from Tu-22M3 aircraft and used ground Iskander and Tochka-U missile systems.

“It should be noted that X-22, Onyx, and Iskander missiles are extremely difficult targets for the air defense systems used by the Ukrainian Air Forces.

“The speed of Onyx and X-22 missiles exceeds 3,000 kilometers per hour. While Iskander missiles move on a ballistic trajectory.

“Their elimination is a non-typical and difficult task for the air defense systems available in Ukraine,” the command said.
