Day 25 - Bloody Stalemate in Putin's War
Hypersonic reportedly fired from Crimea
Russia struck Ukraine with cruise missiles from ships in the Black Sea and Caspian Sea today, according to Russian sources.
I previously noted the Kinzhal hypersonic missile allegedly launched against an arms depot in western Ukraine was likely air dropped by a MiG-31K Foxhound, Mach 3 jet fighter from Russian airspace.
But the Russian defence ministry said on Sunday that they launched hypersonic missiles from Crimean airspace.
Questions have been raised about the earlier Russian hypersonic missile claims however, at Kostyantynivka based on imagery provided by Russia.
The latest strikes reportedly hit a Ukrainian special forces training base at Ovruch housing large numbers of foreign volunteers.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy also said Russia’s siege of the southern port city of Mariupol, where thousands of residents there had reportedly been taken by force across the border, was “a terror that will be remembered for centuries to come.”
