British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace confirmed that the Ukrainian Air Force launched an offensive with British-supplied Storm Shadow missiles. These long-range missiles were used to attack Russian targets, triggering tensions in the region.
Ukraine uses Storm Shadow missiles
Storm Shadow missiles have been launched by specially modified Ukrainian aircraft such as the Su-24 in defense of MiG-29 and Sukhoi-27 fighters. In addition, unmanned aerial vehicles are used as decoys to mislead Russian security.
Interception and air collision
The Russian Defense Ministry has announced the first successful interception of a Storm Shadow missile. There have been aerial skirmishes in the past few days in which several long-range cruise missiles have been shot down. Russian anti-aircraft defenses are on alert.
New additions to the fray
In addition to the Storm Shadow missiles, France is also reportedly sending SCALP-EG missiles to Ukraine, adding to tensions in the region.
These sophisticated weapons pose a major threat to stability in the conflict zone.
Challenges and Modifications
Military experts questioned the ability to integrate Storm Shadow missiles into Ukrainian aircraft, but recent events have shown otherwise.
Although not independently confirmed, it is speculated that Su-24 aircraft have been modified to launch these missiles.
A demonstrative performance
It has been suggested that the attacks on the city of Luhansk carried out with Storm Shadow missiles have a political and demonstrative purpose. Some observers believe that Ukraine is trying to demonstrate the effectiveness of these British-supplied weapons.
Conflict in the region continues to escalate due to Storm Shadow missile attacks and the growing presence of sophisticated weapons. The situation requires immediate attention to avoid further deterioration of peace in the region.
