Russian reports about the destruction of the S-300 air defense system, which was transferred to Ukraine, are hoax, Slovakian Prime Minister Eduard Heger tweeted on April 10.

"Slovakia categorically denies Russian propaganda, that S-300 defense system in Ukraine was destroyed. It's a hoax. Officially confirmed by Ukraine," he tweeted.

On April 8, Heger confirmed that Slovakia had transferred the S-300 air defense system to Ukraine.

Also, Bratislava and Kyiv are negotiating a possible sale to Ukraine of 16 pieces of 155 mm Zuzana self-propelled howitzers, which can hit targets at a range of over 30 kilometers.
