Russia destroys 10 American missiles targeting Crimea, Foreign Minister Antony Blinken on visit to Kiev

Kyiv. Russia’s Defense Ministry said early Wednesday it destroyed 10 American missiles fired by Ukraine to target Crimea. This attack took place while US Secretary of State Antony Blinken is on a visit to Kiev. The ministry said 10 Ukrainian ATACMS missiles were destroyed in the Black Sea over Crimea. Sevastopol Governor Mikhail Razvozhayev said air defense forces destroyed several Ukrainian missiles over the Black Sea and near the Belbek air base.

Razvozhayev said fragments of the destroyed missiles fell on residential areas, but there were no casualties. In other Ukrainian strikes, Russian air defense systems also destroyed nine Ukrainian drones, two Vilha rockets, two anti-radar HARM missiles and two HAMMER guided bombs in the Belgorod region early Wednesday, the Defense Ministry said. Belgorod Governor Vucheslav Gladkov said two people were injured in a house fire caused by a Ukrainian rocket in the village of Dubovoy. Five other Ukrainian drones were destroyed in the Kursk region and three in the Bryansk region, the military said.

The Defense Ministry also said that another Ukrainian drone was destroyed in the Tatarstan region. Rostov region governor Vasily Golubev said two drones attacked a fuel depot. He said there were no casualties and no fire. Blinken arrived in Kiev on Tuesday for a two-day visit and reassured Ukrainians that they are not alone. He said there were delays due to political reasons but billions of dollars of US military aid were on their way and would make a “real difference” on the battlefield.
