Russian military expert Alexei Leonkov said that the Russian Air Force used old tactics to destroy the American Patriot anti-aircraft complex in Kyiv.

In an interview with the newspaper Izvestia, the expert indicated that this tactic dates back to the nineties of the last century, but did not disclose its details and only indicated that Russian pilots forced the Patriot complex to participate in hostilities.

He says: “In this way, the location of the Patriot complex was discovered, and in light of this, the firing and destruction of the Russian hypersonic missile was carried out. This proves that the radar of the Patriot complex could not detect the approach of the Dagger in advance. , but after he approached and they found him heading towards them, they began to react.

Although the Patriot fired 32 missiles, it failed to hit its target, and this is only a clear indication of its ineffectiveness against Russian missiles exceeding the speed of sound.

According to him, in addition to the fact that the Patriot cannot clearly see the Khanjar missile, it is not able to accurately target the anti-missile. Therefore, the launch of 32 missiles is “a sign of desperation, not the behavior of professionals.”

He says: “We saw a desperate attempt by the Patriot to shoot down the Khanjar heading towards it. Although he used up all his ammunition (32 missiles), he was unable to hit the target. Thus, the “Khanjar” destroyed the heart of the Patriot – the radar station and the control center.
