Details: The three potential carriers of the Kinzhal air-to-ground hypersonic missiles are aircraft with registration numbers RF-92215, RF-92445 and RF-95194.
They have been in Belarus since 13 December 2022.
As a rule, the taking-off of these fighters causes an air-raid warning to be issued throughout Ukraine.
At the same time, Ihnat explained to UP that an air-raid warning is issued depending on the airspace situation and the threat of weapons being used.
Quote: "Russia has the entire country on edge whenever MiGs take off. At the moment, these fighter jets are probably flying to Russia, so no warning was issued."
