Russia strikes Ukrainian airfields set to house Western jets – MOD

Kiev’s backers have promised to provide as many as 60 US-designed F-16 fighters, but none have yet been delivered

Russian forces have struck Ukrainian airbases that set to house Western-supplied fighter jets, including US-designed F-16s, the Defense Ministry in Moscow has reported.

The Russian military launched a group strike on Thursday morning, employing long-range sea-based weapons, the Kinzhal hypersonic missile, and unmanned aerial vehicles to attack the “airfield infrastructure of Ukraine, planned to accommodate aircraft from Western countries,” the ministry said in a statement.

“The goal of the strike has been achieved. All designated targets have been hit,” it added, without specifying the number or location of the airfields that were struck.
