Ukraine has shot down 25 Dagger missiles since the start of the full-scale war – Ignat

“Now there are 63 Daggers launched since the beginning of the full-scale invasion. This information is official. Destroyed from 25 – May 4 (2023, – Ed.). That's when we received the Patriot last spring and gained the ability. Destroy aeroballistic missiles,” said the spokesman.

Ignat also commented on the video taken during the massive missile attack on Kyiv. In the footage, one of the enemy's rockets fell on the Dnipro. He mentioned that it is yet to be confirmed that it is “Dakar”.

“Anything could have fallen. So, you can tell what type it is by looking at it,” he added.

Notably, the MiG-31K is the carrier of the Kinzhal aeroballistic missile. This missile is difficult to shoot due to its trajectory. Until the spring of 2023, the Ukrainian army did not fire “daggers”. However, in May, the air defense forces destroyed the Russian “Dakar” for the first time with the help of the Patriot system, which was supplied to Ukraine by partners.
