MOSCOW, November 16. /TASS/. The destruction in the residential areas of the Ukrainian capital of Kiev demonstrated by the country’s authorities was caused by falling Ukrainian air defense missiles, Russian Defense Ministry Spokesman Lieutenant-General Igor Konashenkov said on Wednesday.
"All the destruction in the residential areas of the Ukrainian capital that the Kiev regime has demonstrated was directly caused by falling and self-destructing surface-to-air missiles fired by Ukrainian troops from domestic and foreign-made air defense systems stationed in the city," the spokesman said.
As the general stressed, "during the massive strike by high-precision weapons against facilities on Ukrainian territory on November 15, not a single missile strike was delivered against sites in the city of Kiev."
