100% of Storm Shadow missile launches at the enemy were accurate – Ukraine Defense Minister

Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov praised the effectiveness of the British-supplied long-range Storm Shadow missiles, saying that all launches of those were accurate. He said this during the national telethon on 28 May, Liga reports.

“Out of the total number of Storm Shadow launches that have already taken place, 100% of them have hit the targets designated by the General Staff,” the minister said.

He noted that during the visit to Kyiv of British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace earlier this month, he was honored to introduce him to two Air Force pilots that had already used these missiles on the battlefield against the enemy. The pilots presented Wallace with a red ribbon as a souvenir, used as a “fixture during the launch of Storm Shadow,” while Wallace signed a photo showing a Ukrainian aircraft carrying the Storm Shadow.
