Strike drones attacked the Smolensk Aviation Plant in Russia. The company produces Kh-59 missiles.
This was reported by the Ukrainian Main Intelligence Directorate.
"On October 1, 2023, as a result of a strike on the Smolensk Aviation Plant, the process of producing Kh-59 missiles of various modifications was disrupted," the statement said.
According to confirmed data, three of the four drones hit the target, causing significant damage to the production facilities of the military enterprise of the aggressor state.
It is worth noting that the Kh-59 missile (in the Kh-59MK2 modification) of the air-to-surface class with a range of up to 280 km is one of the missiles most often used by the Russian aerospace forces to fire at military and civilian targets in Ukraine.
Chernihiv, Sumy, Kharkiv, Dnipro, Zaporizhzhia, and Kherson regions suffer the most from the use of such weapons.
