Kh-101 strategic missiles spotted over Kyiv

Strategic cruise missiles X-101 spotted over Kyiv.

At least three Kh-101 air-to-surface air-launched strategic cruise missiles were sighted over Kyiv. Residents managed to film the flight of missiles over the Ukrainian capital, however, there are no details yet on which objects the latter struck.

On the presented video footage, taken by residents of Kyiv and its environs, you can see the moment of the flight of Kh-101 strategic cruise missiles. Initially, it was assumed that we were talking about Caliber cruise missiles. However, judging by the different arrangement of the missile's wings and the presence of a tail section, we are talking about Kh-101 missiles, although no official statements regarding the use of these weapons were made this morning.

It should be noted that the use of Kh-101 strategic cruise missiles has not been observed in Ukraine for quite a long time. However, apparently, targets have now been identified, the elimination of which turned out to be a priority.

Unlike the Kh-102 strategic missiles, the Kh-101 missile does not carry a nuclear or special warhead, however, the missile is capable of delivering high-precision strikes at distances of over 5 kilometers. The Kh-101 cruise missile received its first combat use in 2015 in Syria.
