Reference:

Firing crews of the National Guard are designed to counter air strikes, in particular to shoot down missiles and kamikaze drones.

In combination with the effective work of Air Defence units, this makes it possible to increase the rate of aerial targets downed and thus preserve infrastructure facilities and the lives of Ukrainian citizens.
