A Russian missile strike hit a Motor Sich facility in Ukraine on Saturday, President Volodymyr Zelensky said.
"Today there was another Russian missile attack against our country. Kinzhals, Kalibrs. They hit Motor Sich and the Khmelnytskyi region in western Ukraine, around 300km southwest of Kyiv,” Zelensky said in his evening address.
Motor Sich makes plane and helicopter engines and other components. It was among the "strategic" firms taken over by Ukraine's defense ministry last November.
Zelensky said "some of the missiles were shot down.”
The Khmelnytskyi region is home to a major Ukrainian airbase. Although located hundreds of kilometres from the front lines of the fighting in eastern Ukraine, it has been regularly targeted by Russian strikes,
