Quote: "There are simply a few of them (the Kinzhal missiles in Russian possession) and they [the Russians – ed.] save them for hitting the ‘most important strategic targets’. This time, unfortunately, one of the ‘most critical strategic targets’ was the facility in Zaporizhzhia and one of the energy infrastructure facilities in Kyiv. This is their 'strategic target' to leave people in one of Kyiv’s districts without electricity."

Details: In addition to the Kinzhal missiles, which the Ukrainian air defence system is not capable of shooting down with the available military assets, on 26 January, the Russians used other types of missiles (a total of 55 – ed.), of which 47 were destroyed (46 cruise missiles and one guided missile – ed.).
