The Ukrainian leader published on the X platform (formerly Twitter) a recording from the place where the missiles hit. “The pressure on the terrorist state must be increased. Every day we must respond to Russian terror with our results on the front line. And that’s exactly what we are doing,” commented the Ukrainian leader.
“Russia’s terror and crimes will lead nowhere. Terrorists will be brought to justice for everything they have done,” the president noted.
The governor of the region emphasized in a post on Telegram that all those killed and injured as a result of the Russian missile attack were employees of the facility aged 19 to 42. The official added that the missiles that hit Kharkov were S-300 missiles.
S-300 missile system are long-range surface-to-air missiles developed and produced in Russia. The Soviet Union began working on it in the late 1960s, and the first one entered service in 1979.
