The Ukrainian Air Force has announced that the newly arrived Western air defense systems will help deal with the new threat of Iranian ballistic missiles purchased from Russia. According to Yuriy Ihnat, spokesman for the Ukrainian Air Force, Kiev could target Iranian missiles at their launch sites, therefore on Russian territory.

Because we have no effective means of fighting ballistic missiles, except for their destruction in the launch phase,” Ihnat said, adding that Iranian missiles have “a range of 3-700 kilometers, which in principle will not create anything new for Ukraine. I think both the military leadership and our partners are looking for effective ways to counter these new threats. “
