The Air Force Explained Why It Has Not Yet Been Possible to Shoot Down Russian Onyx Missiles

So far, it has not been possible to shoot down Russian Onyx missiles, because they were originally designed to strike ships and, before being hit, go down to the water, leaving the zone of Ukrainian air defense.

This was told by the speaker of the Air Force Yuri Ignat.

“Despite the fact that the main purpose of the Onyxes is to destroy surface targets, the Russians also use them against ground targets. After all, all the missiles they have in service can be upgraded. And the complexity of the Onyx damage lies in the fact that before entering the the target, it goes down to the water, without entering the zone of destruction of our air defense systems,” Ignat said on the air of the telethon.

Earlier, we wrote that  the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine told where Russia launched Shahedas from that night.

And also that  at night the Russian Federation attacked several regions of Ukraine with drones.

The war in Ukraine has been going on for 517 days. We follow the latest news and key events on July 25, 2023 online .

Earlier we summed up the results of the previous day of the war. Three drones attacked Moscow yesterday morning. Allegedly, they were suppressed by electronic warfare. The mayor’s office recorded strikes on two non-residential buildings, there were no serious damages and no casualties. Journalist Khristo Grozev claims that the objects of the RF Ministry of Defense and the Main Intelligence Directorate were the targets. Meanwhile, Russia continues to hit Ukrainian ports. Last night there was an almost 4-hour attack by “Shahids” on the port infrastructure of the Danube in the Odessa region – the port of Reni.
