Russian invaders on Saturday, January 14, most likely hit Kiev with Iskanders equipped with M-723 missiles. The speed of such a missile is almost eight times greater than that of cruise missiles.

“In my opinion, most likely, there was an Iskander equipped with the M-723 rocket. The speed of such a rocket is 8,820 km per hour. This is almost 7-8 times higher than a cruise missile. Imagine an arc, the rocket flew off the platform, and on of this colossal speed went in an arc to the target. Such a rocket strikes up to 500 km. So, this is 2450 m / s. That is, if it is 500 km, then this is four minutes. And if it is less, but in fact, I think which was less, that is, shots were fired from Belarus, perhaps within 200 km, then this is less than two minutes,” military expert Piotr Chernik said on the air of the telethon.

At the same time, he pointed out that such missiles are very difficult to detect because of the enormous speed. At the same time, the expert recalled that the Russians had not used Iskanders for a long time, and at that time they were developing schemes to make covert launches.

  1. If this is what was used makes more sense how it was not detected or air raid sirens activated. Even on a good day would be a PITA to deal with.
