Ukraine war: Putin fires hypersonic missiles in new barrage, may be forced to use NUKES as Russia’s army continue to suffer setbacks

At least nine people have died in a new wave of strikes across Ukraine in which Russia used powerful weapons, including rare hypersonic missiles.

Russia had reportedly not fired Kinzhal hypersonic missiles – which can evade air defences – since the early months of the conflict.

The latest barrage was the most severe to hit Ukraine for weeks.

It cut power to the Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant – Europe’s biggest – although it was later restored.

On Thursday Russian defence ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said: “High-precision long-range air, sea and land-based weapons, including the Kinzhal hypersonic missile system, hit key elements of Ukraine’s military infrastructure.”

It was the biggest day of Russian strikes on Ukraine since the end of January,

The Ukrainian military claimed it had successfully shot down 34 cruise missiles and four Iranian-made Shahed drones.

But it also said it had been unable to intercept the six Kinzhal ballistic missiles – nor was it able to destroy older weapons, such as Kh-22 anti-ship missiles and S-300 anti-aircraft missiles.

“This was a major attack and for the first time with so many different types of missiles,” the Reuters news agency quoted a Ukrainian air force spokesperson as saying. “It was like never before.”

Putin may be forced to use NUKES as Russia’s army has been crushed in Ukraine, says US spy chief in chilling warning

RUSSIA may be forced to use nuclear weapons after its conventional forces have been crushed in Ukraine, America’s top spy has warned.

Vladimir Putin’s invasion has led to the loss of over 155,000 troops as well as huge quantities of arms, according to figures released by Ukraine’s military.

Deluded Putin thought he could defeat Ukraine in three days and that thousands would rise up to overthrow Volodymyr Zelensky, his own spies have revealed.

But the Russian tyrant’s invasion has turned into a military failure of incredible scale, with poorly trained and equipped soldiers being sent to their deaths by incompetent leaders.

Putin has repeatedly raised the spectre of using the weapons – and at one point it was feared he could potentially be lining up a test in the Black Sea.
