Russian super-ultrasound Kinzhal missile with a blow speed on the target of 12 Mach ( twelve times the speed of sound, hit control and communications of Ukrainians and NATO that had been installed at a depth of 130 meters!
In the underground headquarters ( which was built at a depth of 400 feet in the ground ) it served a number of NATO officials and others.
The Russians are talking about retrieving 40 dead from the wreckage of the underground headquarters, so far, but most will never be retracted as they will have disintegrated.
It is unknown at this time what they will do after leaving the post. It is the first time that Westerners have counted so many dead and so on.
Most are British and Polish, but among them were Americans and members of private companies that supported communications.
In the coming days and weeks it will be seen from the evolution of businesses, whether it will affect the conduct of operations and the attempt to stop the final Russian attack on Bakhmut.
However, this is the first mass strike against NATO personnel and it is not known how the Western capitals will react, although, it will be as if they are admitting active involvement with personnel in the war against Russia!
Also known as « Dagger », it has a long range of more than 2,000 km, speed 10 Mach and the ability to perform avoidance manoeuvres at any stage of its flight but its piercing ability is powerful.
It can carry both conventional and nuclear warheads and can be launched by Tu-22M3 bombers or MiG-31K interceptors.
Kinzhal was introduced to the Russian warfare in December 2017 and is one of the six new Russian strategic weapons to be discovered in Russia.
It is said to have been designed to overcome any known US Air or Missile Defence System, including Area Mott Defence.
« This is an attack ... I don't remember, to be honest, happening again.
This is the first time that the Russians have hit Ukraine with such different types of missiles.
They threw up to 6 Kinzhal. MiG-31K » aircraft were also used, explained the representative of the Ukrainian Air Force.
In recent days, Ukrainian President Zelensky had described the beatings as « hard » with 81 Russian firecrackers:
« Mass rocket attack across the country. Kiev, Kirovohrad region, Dnepropetrovsk region, Odessa region, Kharkiv region, Zaporozhye region, Lviv region ( the point of the strike ), Ivano-Frankivyrsk.
Explosions were recorded in three DTEK thermal power plants during the night missile attack. The station's equipment was severely damaged.
In the Krivoy Rog area of Dnipropetrovsk area, two energy infrastructure facilities were attacked, Alexander Vilkul said, head of the regional administration.
🇷🇺 🚀 🔥 AFU claims that 6 "Kinzhals" and a large number of other missions and drones were fired at once in Ukraine at night, most of which were shot down when reported on UkrainianTelegram channels, as usual. At the same time, there continued to be reports of damage and failure of various infrastructure facilities.
Also, the head of the military administration of the city of Kiev clarified that the capital was hit by ultrasound. According to him, the Russians used almost all types of their air weapons, including the wandering ones. Ukrainian Chief of General Staff Valeri Zaluzni said the Russian forces fired 81 shots between March 8-9.
Specifically, they were launched:
28 air cruise missiles – KH-101 / Kh-555 ground.
20 surface cruise missiles – Kalibr type ground.
6 air cruise missiles – Kh-22 surface.
6 air cruise missiles – Kh-47 type ground
2 Kh-31P type radar missiles
6 air cruise missiles – Kh-59 ground.
13 guided missiles from S-300 anti-aircraft systems used against terrestrial targets
8 Shahed-136 UAVs with payload.
However, the air defence forces could not stop the Russian missiles such as the Kh-22, Kh-47 and the missiles of the Russian S0-3, because, as they themselves stated, « do not have the appropriate means » for this mission.
