The Security Service of Ukraine has found the wreckage of a Russian X-101 cruise missile at the site of the attack on the Okhmatdyt children's hospital in Kyiv.

This was reported by the SBU.

In particular, SBU investigators found:

- a fragment of the X-101 wing deployment mechanism;

- a fragment of the jamming unit of the X-101 missile; 

- the middle part of the body of the X-101 cruise missile (pictured under the rubble);

- an element of the tail section and a fragment of the X-101 cruise missile's hydraulic unit;

- fragments of the X-101 cruise missile engine cowling with the inventory (inside) and serial numbers (outside).

"The conclusions of the experts are unequivocal - it was a targeted attack on the hospital by the Russians. This is evidenced not only by the missile debris found at the site of the strike, but also by the analysis of flight path data, the nature of the damage caused, as well as a large number of video and photo materials," the statement said.

According to the intelligence service, the following factors confirm a targeted missile strike by the Russian Federation:

- the nature of the destruction (a two-storey hospital building was completely destroyed, and the surrounding buildings were heavily damaged), which is typical of an X-101 warhead (400 kg). The destruction could in no way have been caused by the NASAMS system, whose warheads are about 20 times less powerful;

- the proportions, shape and size of the missile, which is captured in publicly available videos, fully correspond to the X-101 missile, and, conversely, are not typical of SAMs, including NASAMS. Attempts by Russian propagandists to compare the missile in the video, which hits the hospital several hundred metres away, with the size of the building in the foreground is a cynical and meaningless manipulation.

The missile's flight path is fully consistent with the characteristics of the X-101 (climb, or "slide", before hitting the target, and attack at an approximate 60-degree angle);

The fact that the attack on the Okhmatdyt children's hospital was carried out by an X-101 air-launched missile was also recorded by radar.

The rescue operation in Ukraine after yesterday's terrorist massive missile attack by Russia continues. As of now, 38 people have been killed, including four children. 190 people have been injured.
