A Russian ballistic missile launched at Kyiv on the morning of Nov. 11 was shot down by a Patriot air defense system, the Air Force reported.
It is yet to be established whether the missile used by Russia in the attack was an Iskander or an S-400 type, the report noted.
Russian forces launched a missile strike at Ukraine's capital for the first time in 52 days. Blasts caused by active air defenses were heard in the city at around 8 a.m., followed by an air raid siren.
No damage or casualties were reported in the city as a result.
Ukraine received its first two Patriot systems from the U.S. and Germany in April.
These highly capable defenses play a vital role in protecting Ukraine's airspace, as they have proven themselves effective even against advanced Russian missiles like Kh-47M2 Kinzhal.
