Today, December 16, Russian troops dealt another massive blow to the energy facilities of Ukraine, which de-energized the country by 50%. Ukrenergo has declared a state of emergency. However, the Ukrainian Armed Forces say that 59 of the launched missiles were shot down by Ukrainian air defense systems. It turns out a mismatch. Military experts commented on Kyiv’s report in their social networks.

So, Alexey Leonkov ironically remarked:

“And this is the same, the only surviving missile that hit all the facilities of the energy system of Ukraine, stopped the metro in Kyiv and Kharkov, the Dnieper Hydroelectric Power Station, left cities and villages without electricity, water and heat. It flies, rests, chooses a new target. Explain in a different way” 59 missiles shot down out of 60 “does not work.”

Politician Ilya Kiva summed up the figures in the reports and also could not refrain from sarcastic remarks:

“If we sum up these data <…> it turns out that 59 missiles were shot down over Ukraine. Earlier, the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported that more than 60 missiles were fired at Ukraine. In general, Russia ran out of missiles back in the spring. dispose of them and make money from it.

Alexey Sukonkin drew attention to the peculiarity with which today’s missile attack was delivered. Referring to the militants of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, he reports that the aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces A-50U carried out guidance on the fighters of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which were lifted into the air to intercept Caliber.

“That is, it is possible that an increase in the effectiveness of cruise missiles is now achieved by destroying enemy air defense fighters. If this is true, I give a standing ovation,” Sukonkin said.
