"Some of them" didn't reach their targets, possibly due to self-destruction or their age "because these are outdated Soviet missiles," the military official added.

Russia used the same missile — Soviet-era Kh-22 Burya (Storm), also known by its NATO reporting name, AS-4 Kitchen — to hit a residential building in Dnipro on Jan. 14, killing 40 civilians and injuring over 70.
