Russia claims to have used its Kinzhal hypersonic missiles for the first time invasion of Ukraine – perhaps heralding a new era in which these super-fast weapons could dominate warfare.

Russia announced on Saturday (March 19) that it had used the Kh-47M2 Kinzhal missile system – its name means “dagger” in Russian – to destroy an arms depot in western Ukraine, according to a Reuters report News agency, which quoted the independent Russian news agency Interfax.
