U.S.-built Patriot air defense system back in action in Kyiv after Russian hypersonic missile strike

(Worthy News) – Pentagon officials said Thursday that a U.S.-built Patriot air defense system is back in action in Kyiv after it was damaged in a Russian missile strike. On Tuesday, Russia launched an air barrage at Ukraine’s capital, including several Kh-47 Kinzhal hypersonic missiles, the most sophisticated conventional weapons in Moscow’s arsenal.

The Kremlin has boasted that the Kinzhal can fly at speeds up to Mach 10 and would outmatch the weapons of any adversary. On Thursday, Russia’s defense ministry said the May 16 strike not only destroyed a Ukrainian radar station but “completely destroyed” five Patriot missile launchers.

But Ukrainian officials contended that none of the cutting-edge Russian hypersonic missiles reached their target, and the Pentagon is pushing back on Russia’s claims that a Patriot missile defense battery, one of the most state-of-the-art U.S.-built weapon systems, had been disabled in the assault.
