The video was filmed early Friday morning near the city of Alchevsk, which is located some 55 miles south of Severodonetsk and is currently the epicenter of the war. According to reports, the air defense missile system, possibly the S300, was being used by Russian-backed Ukrainian separatists in Luhansk. The reason for this error is not clear at this time. Some are speculating that the hacking of Ukrainian drones resulted in this, although this is unlikely.
Missile fuel exploded
It can be seen in the video that the missile’s collision caused a loud explosion and sparks spread all around, which is believed to be caused by the explosion of its fuel. Local media reports reported a fire broke out at a site not far from residential buildings. There is no information about the casualties of Russian soldiers and separatists in the accident. One such incident happened in Saudi Arabia in 2018.
When American missile twisted in the air
The US Patriot air defense missile was fired to thwart a ballistic missile of Yemen’s Houthi rebels, but due to a malfunction, it turned back and hit a residential area in north-eastern Riyadh. In four months of fighting, Ukraine has won on many fronts. Its drones play a big role in this, especially Turkey’s Bayraktar TB2 drone. Recently, these same drones stopped a large convoy of Russian tanks from moving forward.
