He noted that it is impossible to shoot down all incoming missiles. "We started shooting them down using Patriot systems only in May, and only in the area where they are deployed. We must understand that we shoot down only cruise missiles or Kh-59s," said the spokesman.

As reported, Ihnat said earlier that since September 2022, Russian invaders have launched about 3,800 kamikaze drones at Ukraine, of which more than 3,000 were intercepted.
