Recently the Russian Federation increase the use of strategic bombers specially Tu-22 and Tu-95 and regularly launching cruise missiles from the Caspian Sea region.

Recently the Ukraine Air force reported that the interception of four out of six cruise missiles that were launched from the Caspian Sea region from the Russian Tu-95MS strategic bomber.

The Kh-101 or Kh-555 missiles were shot down around 16:30 by air defense units of the East air command in Zaporizhzhia and Dnipropetrovsk region. Unfortunately, two more broke through and hit an agricultural enterprise in the Cherkasy region.

Defense Express notes that any anti-aircraft defense does not guarantee the destruction of all targets. And Ukrainian operators of anti-aircraft missile systems and pilots are squeezing everything they can out of the equipment, the average age of which has crossed the 40-year mark.

At the same time, intercepting cruise missiles, even despite their subsonic speed, is an extremely difficult task due to the fact that it is a low-altitude and inconspicuous target. And the fact that most of the missiles are already being destroyed by Ukrainian air defense is a direct demonstration of the exceptional professionalism of the defenders. In particular, even the United States cannot provide protection against this threat, as details analysis by CSIS shows.

Therefore, it is necessary to hide in a safe place after the air alarm signal, avoid crowding on the streets. The Russian Federation, as a terrorist state, strikes precisely at civilians and residential buildings, hospitals, schools, kindergartens, shopping centers and concert halls – just a target, which for the Kremlin does not differ in rank from military facilities
