Russia has already fired about 100 missiles across Ukraine on Nov. 15, the spokesman of the Air Force Command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Yuriy Ihnat announced on Ukrainian national television on the evening of Nov. 15.
"We will draw overall conclusions a little later,” he said.
“But air defenses have been working, there have been shoot-downs throughout Ukraine. Eighty missiles have already been launched and at least 20 are still flying. That is, about 100 missiles have already been launched on the territory of Ukraine. The occupiers have surpassed Oct. 10, when there were 84 missiles –now there are 100 missiles.”
Ihnat added that the main target of the Russian military is critical infrastructure facilities.
"Indeed, it is a massive strike," the Ukrainian Air Force spokesman said.
“Yes, critical infrastructure facilities are the primary target. But we (also) see the consequences of missile attacks on residential buildings, unfortunately.”
According to him, it is thought that the Russian military attacked Ukraine with Kh-101 and Kh-555 cruise missiles.
On the afternoon of Nov. 15, Russia started a massive missile attack on Ukrainian cities, with air defense activated across most of the country’s regions.
Explosions were heard in Kharkiv, Lviv, and Rivne. There are reported to have been hits on energy infrastructure facilities.
Russia also launched missile strikes on Kyiv, where some missiles hit residential buildings in the central Pechersk district of the capital, near where the country’s main government buildings are located.
This mass missile attack comes on the first day of the G20 summit in Bali, Indonesia. Earlier, Ukrainian authorities warned that Russia was planning a mass missile attack on Ukraine to coincide with the G20 summit.
