This information was reported by Pravda, citing informed interlocutors of the UP in the Main Intelligence Directorate, reports URA-Inform .  

Sources in the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine that the Russian A-50 long-range radar detection aircraft was shot down from the S-200 long-range anti-aircraft missile system.

It is worth noting that that the S-200 air defense system began to be developed in the USSR 60 years ago. Subsequently, the complex underwent several modernizations.

In July 2023, the Russians made statements about attacks on targets in the Russian Federation and in the occupied territories with missiles from the S-200 complex. According to the Russians, the Ukrainians have redesigned the air defense system for attacks on ground targets and are firing 5B28 missiles.

Former deputy chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, responsible for the air defense system, Igor Romanenko said that the Ukrainian military practiced the use of the S missile in training -200 against ground targets.

Also, the fact that the Ukrainian Armed Forces use the S-200 as a ballistic missile for ground targets was confirmed by British intelligence.

We recall that it was previously reported that NATO allowed Ukrainian Armed Forces to strike at the Russian Federation: Stoltenberg warned where they will strike.
