Russian air defense intercepted two US-made cruise missiles five kilometers from the Russian border. This was reported by Avia.pro, noting that the missiles hit Russian-made air defense systems.
This is a very serious incident, because in fact, for the first time, American missile weapons were used near the border of the Russian Federation. The relevant information was provided by the defense department.
The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reported that in the area of \u200b\u200bthe settlement of Udy in the Kharkiv region, the air defense of the Russian Federation shot down two American AGM-88 HARM cruise missiles. In what direction they flew, there is no information. But it should be borne in mind that they were struck 5 kilometers from the border with the Belgorod region and about 35 kilometers from Belgorod.
Ukraine can fire such missiles from MiG-29 and Su-27 fighters.
What happened, experts say, Moscow can assess as an attempt at aggression against the Russian Federation. At the same time, it should be noted that Russian troops continue to remain on part of Ukrainian territory.
