Russian missile strikes in Ukraine Thursday –including the use of six nuclear capable hypersonic missiles- have U.S. Defense officials on edge as war escalates in the region. Moreover, at least nine Ukrainian civilians tragically lost their lives Thursday during the deadly strike.
This is the first time since the early months of the war in Ukraine that Russia has launched hypersonic missiles. According to the BBC, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said: “High-precision long-range air, sea and land-based weapons, including the Kinzhal hypersonic missile system, hit key elements of Ukraine’s military infrastructure.”
Thirty-four cruise missiles and four Iranian-made Shahed drones were shot down according to Ukrainian military officials. Those officials also reported that they were incapable of intercepting the six Kinzhal hypersonic ballistic missiles.
