The footage, shared on the ministry’s Twitter account, was credited to the 14th Separate Regiment.

The video captures the dramatic moment of impact, showcasing the precision and effectiveness of the HIMARS system in neutralising the air defence threat.

The Buk-M2 is a sophisticated, medium-range surface-to-air missile system designed to counter a variety of aerial threats, including aircraft and cruise missiles. Its destruction marks a significant tactical victory for Ukrainian forces.
