News Russia says shot down US-made missiles launched by Ukraine

MOSCOW: Russia said Tuesday it had shot down six US-supplied tactical missiles launched by Ukraine, with officials in annexed Crimea saying some were downed over the Black Sea peninsula.
Washington has said it had supplied the arms to Ukraine, which has been asking for more powerful weapons for months as it struggles to contain advancing Russian forces.
Moscow’s defense ministry said it had destroyed six Army Tactical Missile System (ATACMS) rockets “in the last 24 hours,” without saying where they were shot down.
