“We're talking about hundreds of missiles,” said Ihnat.

“We had Kh-22 missiles in service, we handed them over to the Russians to settle (natural) gas debts. They were also decommissioned and cut into scrap metal. Some were given away, some were destroyed.”

“As fate would have it, they are now ‘returning’ to Ukraine. Here is everything you need to know about the bloodthirstiness of the Russians, about their ‘brotherly’ relationship with us. Unfortunately, they have these missiles. And they’ve been using them against Ukraine since Feb. 24 (2022).”
