On the presented video frames, you can see the moment of the Kalibr cruise missiles attacking the weapons depot near the city of Chortkiv. The attacks were carried out during the daytime. This was quite unexpected for the Armed Forces of Ukraine, as a result of which attempts to intercept Russian cruise missiles were not even made.
According to various sources, the destroyed warehouses contained up to 1,200 American and other MANPADS, about 1,500 anti-tank missile systems, at least 30 pieces of artillery, several tens of thousands of ammunition, and other weapons.
Earlier, during a briefing, the official representative of the Ministry of Defense, Igor Konashenkov, said that the Russian Armed Forces destroyed a warehouse in the Ternopil region that stored weapons that were supplied to Ukrainian troops from the United States and a number of Western countries. High-precision Caliber missiles were used to hit the target.
