As part of the ongoing special military operation, Russia’s Armed Forces carry out precision air strikes against Ukrainian military equipment and infrastructure that threaten its security.
The Russian Ministry of Defense (MoD) has released footage showing the country’s troops hit Ukrainian S-300 long-range surface-to-air missile (SAM) systems located in the Poltava region.

“The Iskander-M tactical missile complex launched a missile attack on the position of Ukraine’s S-300PS air defense system, located in the Koptevo area of ​​the Poltava region,” the MoD specified.

The strike destroyed two S-300 launchers, a control cabin, a vehicle, and military personnel of the anti-aircraft missile.

The Iskander-M system provides a high level of flexibility, capable of targeting both stationary and mobile objectives, including fortified positions and infrastructure. Equipped with precision-guided munitions, it effectively reduces collateral damage while optimizing the battlefield impact.
