The Russian Ministry of Defence claims to have launched hypersonic Kalibr cruise missiles and destroyed four S-300PMU launchers in Dnipro. Lubica Janikova, a spokesperson for the Slovak government, refuted the Moscow story.


On Monday, Russia announced that it had used cruise missiles to destroy S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems supplied to Ukraine by an unidentified European country. "High-precision sea-launched Kalibr missiles destroyed the equipment of an S-300 anti-aircraft missile division delivered to the Kyiv regime by a European country," the ministry said. Russia did not specify which European country provided the S-300 systems.

NATO member Slovakia, which provided such a missile system to Ukraine, stated that it was not hit. "Our S-300 was not destroyed," said Lubica Janikova, a spokesperson for the Slovak government.
