Another Ukrainian city pf Kryvyi Rih was also targeted by the Russian attack overnight, with at least three people injured.

This follows the earlier same day report by Ukraine’s Air Force Commander Mykola Oleshchuk of the first downing of a Russian Tu-22M3 long-range supersonic strategic bomber, a carrier of Kh-22 cruise missiles.

This operation, conducted in collaboration with Ukraine’s Main Intelligence Directorate (HUR), also saw the interception of two Russian Kh-22 missiles for the first time.

Ukrainian forces managed to intercept a total of 29 out of 36 air targets launched by Russia, including both Kh-101/Kh-555 cruise missiles fired from Tu-95 MS strategic aircraft, all 14 Shaheed one-way attack drones, and eleven out of twelve Kh-59/Kh-69 guided missiles. However, only two of the six Kh-22 cruise missiles launched from the downed Tu-22M3 bombers were intercepted.
