Each of the six Kh-101 missiles that invading Russian forces launched at the city of Dnipro on July 15 costs about $13 million, the head of the Dnipropetrovsk Regional Council Mykola Lukashuk reported via Facebook on July 16.

In total, he calculated that the Russian military spent $78 million on the missile attack on Dnipro on July 15. 

The Kh-101 missile flies at a low altitude, which allows it to bypass air defenses, the official wrote. The missile is controllable, its impact accuracy is 10 meters and the flight range is just over 5,000 kilometers.

“You can see the increase in Russian attacks,” writes Lukashuk. 

“A terrorist attack in Vinnytsia, an attack on Dnipro, Nikopol, regular enemy fire on Kryvorizky, and recently also on Synelnykivsky districts. Therefore, I want to urge every resident of the Oblast to follow the safety rules. No one can say with 100% accuracy where the next Russian missile will land. Remember clearly: either hide in a shelter, or follow the two walls rule and keep distance from the windows”.

On the night of July 16, Russia attacked Dnipropetrovsk Oblast with a total of six missiles, four of which were shot down by Ukrainian air defenses.

In Dnipro, one of the missiles hit an industrial enterprise and killed three people on the street next to it. The scope of the damage is being evaluated.
