"Significant damage done": rockets hit the Ukrainian Air Force Headquarters

“Too much damage done”
Missiles hit Ukraine’s Air Force Headquarters

The headquarters of the Ukrainian Air Force is located in the city of Vinnytsia. Several Russian rockets hit there in the afternoon. The high command has reported major damage to buildings, but the extent is yet to be estimated.

According to Ukrainian sources, the Ukrainian Air Force command center in Vinnytsia was attacked by Russian cruise missiles and seriously damaged. According to the Ukrainian military, the Russian army fired six cruise missiles in the afternoon. Some were intercepted by Ukrainian air defense, others hit buildings and caused “significant damage,” the command of the Ukrainian Air Force said in the messenger service Telegram.

The results of the rocket attack are still being determined, the statement said. The military published a picture of the destroyed part of the building on Telegram.

The Ukrainian Air Force and Air Defense have so far been able to prevent the Russian military from taking full control of Ukrainian airspace. A Pentagon official said on Monday that Ukraine’s air force was showing “great skill”.

In addition, government sources in Washington reported high failure rates of Russian missiles. This may explain why Moscow has not achieved many military targets, said three government officials with knowledge of intelligence from the Reuters news agency. One of the insiders said the failure rate of Russia’s air-launched cruise missiles was between 20 per cent and 60 per cent on a day to day basis. Failure can range from false launch to rocket failing to detonate on impact.

According to the Institute’s Center for Strategic and International Studies Missile Defense Project, Russia has deployed two types of air-launched cruise missiles Kh-555 and Kh-101 in Ukraine. According to military experts, a default rate of 20 percent is already considered too high.
