Explosion of Kh-101 cruise missile in Kalmykia caught on video

In Kalmykia, a Kh-101 cruise missile fell.

On February 1, 2023, a Kh-101 strategic cruise missile fell on the territory of Kalmykia. The circumstances of the launch of the latter and the reasons for the fall on the territory of Kalmykia are still unknown, however, during the fall, the rocket did not explode, which created a threat, and therefore was artificially blown up by specialists. Video footage of the explosion was captured by local residents.

In the presented photographs, you can see fragments of a rocket that fell on the territory of Kalmykia. The latter, apparently, fell apart, either on impact with the ground, or even in the process of flight. Whether the last warhead carried it is unknown, since no such missiles were reported on the territory of Ukraine, in connection with which we can talk about both a training missile and a training launch.

On the video footage presented, you can see the moment when the Kh-101 strategic missile was blown up by Russian specialists. Even despite the fact that the detonation is used in order to minimize the force of the explosion of such a rocket, on the video frames you can see that the explosion itself was quite powerful.

So far, no official statements have been made in this regard by officials.
