Claims Ukraine destroyed Russian hypersonic missile with Patriot examined

Ukraine has used a US Patriot air defence system to shoot down a Russian Kinzhal hypersonic missile, the Pentagon has confirmed.

But the claim has generated a lot of debate on social media, with many commentators saying there is no evidence to support the story.

Initially, the Ukrainians denied it, but the country’s air force confirmed the strike hours later on social media – saying it happened on 4 May during a Russian night attack on Kyiv.

The claim stated a Kinzhal missile, launched from inside Russia by a MiG-31 Foxhound jet, was blown from the sky by a Patriot missile.
