International Desk: The Pentagon estimates that Russia has used about 10-12 of its hypersonic weapons since the start of the war in Ukraine.
This was stated by a senior official of the ministry while talking to reporters on Tuesday.
He said the United States did not have an “accurate account” of how many such missiles Russia had deployed.
Russia says it used Kinzhal hypersonic missiles for the first time in Ukraine in March.
Such missiles can hit any target within a range of 2,000 kilometers and can reach speeds of up to 6,000 kilometers per hour, the BBC reported.
Recently, Ukrainian officials alleged that Russia had used the Kinzhal missile in its attack on Odessa on Sunday.
However, the U.S. official said he did not have “any indications” that Kinzhal missiles were being used against cities.
