Kinzhal missile is highly maneuverable and defies all air defense systems, Moscow said.
The Russian Defense Ministry said today it used hypersonic air-to-ground missiles to destroy an underground weapons depot in eastern Ukraine on Friday.
This is the first time they have been used in the Russian invasion of Ukraine, according to Russian state news agency Ria Novosti.
On February 24, Russia launched a military offensive in Ukraine that caused at least 816 deaths and 1,333 injuries among the civilian population, including more than 130 children, and caused the flight of about 5.2 million people, including more than 3.2 million to neighboring countries, according to the latest UN data.
According to the United Nations, around 13 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance in Ukraine.
The Russian invasion was condemned by the international community in general, which responded by sending weapons to Ukraine and reinforcing economic and political sanctions on Moscow.
