Ukraine said Tuesday it had downed six advanced Russian hypersonic missiles during a fresh overnight barrage of missiles and drones, according to AFP.

"Another unbelievable success for the Ukrainian Air Forces! Last night, our sky defenders shot down SIX Russian hypersonic Kinzhal missiles and 12 other missiles," defense minister Oleksiy Reznikov said in an English-language statement on Twitter. The statement came just over a week after Ukraine said it had downed its first Kinzhal hypersonic missile.
