DTEK urges Ukrainians not to ignore the air-raid sirens and to believe in Ukraine’s air defence forces.

Background:

  • On the morning of 10 February, an air-raid siren was sounded throughout Ukraine.
  • Belaruski Hajun, an independent Belarusian military monitoring media outlet, reported that a long-range radar surveillance aircraft and a Mig-31K fighter jet that can carry Kinzhal hypersonic missiles had taken off in Belarus. 
  • Serhii Popko, head of Kyiv City Military Administration, earlier reported that Russia had 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.
