Ukraine’s defense ministry spokesperson says up to 70% of Russian missile strikes are on peaceful cities and non-military targets.
Oleksandr Motuzyanyk said on Friday only 30% of Russian missile strikes are on military targets.
“The remaining 70% of strikes are Russians deliberately attacking peaceful cities. Russia should be recognized as a terrorist country,” he said.
He went on to say, “The only way to stop this missile terror is to destroy the missiles that Russia launches over Ukraine.”
According to Motuzyanyk, the anti-aircraft systems worked “as well as it could” when Vinnytsia was attacked on Thursday.
“Two missiles out of five were shot down. If we had more powerful modern anti-aircraft weapons, we could destroy more of those Russian missiles. Today we need modern air defense,” Motuzyanyk said.
He added HIMARS are working well on the front lines and more than 30 of Russia’s military logistics facilities have been destroyed.
