Oleksiy Danilov: The downing of the Kinzhal missile was a shock for the russians

The downing of the Kinzhal missile by the Ukrainian military using the Patriot air defense system came as a shock to the russians, as they considered such a defeat impossible. This was stated by Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksiy Danilov on the “We Are Ukraine” TV channel on Wednesday, May 10, 2023.

Oleksiy Danilov emphasized that the provision of Patriot became possible primarily due to the efforts of President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy, noting that these air defense systems were provided to our country after the Head of State met with US President Joseph Biden in Washington.

Answering a question about the prospects of supplying Ukraine with F-16 aircraft, the NSDC Secretary said: "Believe me, we will definitely have them." He noted that the President of Ukraine and Ukrainian diplomats are working on this issue.

"We will master these planes very quickly, and our ace pilots will have an advantage in the sky over the russian scum," he said.
