During its full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Russia fired more than 4,000 missiles at Ukraine, Yurii Ihnat, the spokesman of the Air Force of Ukraine, told Suspilne.

“More than 4,000 missiles have been launched in Ukraine, all types of missiles. But that [figure] doesn’t include the S-300 [surface-to-air missiles often used by Russian in their secondary ground-attack role], MLRS, air-based missiles such as the Kh-59, Kh-58,” he said.

Ihnat says that countering the Russian missiles, Ukraine spent a lot of air defense ammunition.

“It’s good that we also have friends in the West who had these complexes in service. Slovakia provided us with one S-300 complex. And, in accordance with it, a certain amount of ammunition,” he noted.
