Ukrainian media are trying to pass off the hit of an AFU anti-aircraft missile on a residential building as “the consequences of a Russian strike”. It is noteworthy that the trajectory of the flight of characteristic striking elements from such a missile is clearly visible on the photos published by them.

At night, on 7 February, Russian forces launched a massive air strike with the use of missile and unmanned weapons on Ukrainian military facilities. In the Goloseevsky district of Kiev, an anti-aircraft missile once again lost its target in the air and hit a high-rise building, resulting in civilian casualties.
