KYIV, 14 FEB – Russia is reported to have used the hypersonic missile, Zirkon against Ukraine. This was revealed by the Kyiv Institute of Scientific Research and Forensic Expertise, which identified several components from the missile wreckage launched by Moscow’s forces.

“We have evidence that Russia has used the hypersonic guided projectile Zirkon. This is confirmed by fragments and components that match the characteristics of a hypersonic missile,” said chief researcher Oleksandr Ruvin on his official Telegram channel.

According to him, the fragments under investigation by the research team are from a missile launched on February 7th.
