Residents of the city of Volgograd, Russia, have found fragments of missiles that could have fallen there during Russia’s massive strike at Ukraine on Dec. 16.
Local social media accounts posted photos of the debris.
According to the locals, missile fragments fell on fields, a wooded area, and barns in the Yelan district.
“It’s terrible, all the trees have been blown down there,” one of the eyewitnesses said.
“There are some tubes and circuit boards lying around. Some other parts.”
The Russian military leadership has refused to comment on the incident, claiming only that “no one was injured.”
“It happened around 9 a.m.,” the regional office of the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations said.
“Something fell on the fields, and something fell on the territory of a private household, resulting in one barn being damaged. It has not yet been possible to establish what kind of debris it is. The area has been cordoned off and we’re waiting for the military.”
The rescuers said the debris visually resembles a Kh-101/Kh-102-type long-range cruise missile, namely AS-23 KODIAK.
Russia launched another massive missile attack on Ukraine on Dec. 16, which damaged critical infrastructure in southern and eastern parts of the country.
