Air-raid siren lasted for 3.5 hours throughout Ukraine

An air-raid siren sounded throughout all Ukrainian oblasts on the morning of 10 February.


Details: An air-raid siren was sounded in Kyiv at 08:27, and then this was repeated throughout the entire territory of the country in a few minutes.


Air-raid sirens signal the threat of missile and air strikes. Residents of oblasts where sirens have been sounded are advised to retreat to shelters.

Belaruski Hajun, a Belarusian military monitoring outlet, has reported that a long-range radar surveillance aircraft and a MiG-31K fighter jet capable of carrying Kinzhal hypersonic missiles took off in Belarus.

The aircraft took off from the Machulishchy airfield just before air-raid sirens were sounded in Ukraine.

Serhii Popko, Head of the Kyiv City Military Administration, has earlier reported that Russia deployed several Tu-95 strategic bomber jets capable of carrying cruise missiles. He said there was a significant threat of a missile strike on Ukraine.

The Operational Command Pivden also warned about a threat of missile strikes, reporting that Russia has deployed three missile carriers armed with up to 20 Kalibr cruise missiles in the Black Sea.

Mykola Lukashuk, Head of Dnipropetrovsk Oblast Council, also reported the threat of a missile strike and that "launches have been observed."

Later, he noted that as of 8:58, "there are no missiles in the airspace of Ukraine". According to Lukashuk, the approximate time of their approach to Dnipropetrovsk Oblast is 9:30. He added that this time "may change, as well as the direction of the missiles' movement."

Updated: Belaruski Hajun reported that at 10:24, a MiG-31K of Russian Aerospace Forces landed at the Machulishchy airfield, and a few minutes earlier, an AWACS landed there as well.

Updated at 12:00: After 11:57, the all-clear was sounded. In total, the air-raid alert had lasted for about 3.5 hours.
