The crucial role of air defence in Ukraine Ukraine is effectively shooting down Russian missiles with the help of Western air defence systems, Dispatches, IFBG.On the evening of 26 July, the Russian Aerospace Forces carried out one of the largest missile attacks on Ukraine. Three Kalibr ballistic missiles and 33 X-101/X-555 ballistic missiles were used. In addition, 4 hypersonic missile systems X-47 "Kinzhal" flew in the direction of the airfield in Starokonstantinov in Khmelnytskyi region.
