The “Lightning” supersonic missile, which “cannot be shot down,” was developed in Ukraine. It is designed to destroy ships and is capable of speeds up to 2500 km / h. The creators of "Lightning" say that the installation of a rocket on aeroplanes requires minimal technical intervention. Earlier, Kyiv threatened Moscow with a subsonic Neptune rocket - a modification of the Soviet X-35.

"Lightning" (Ukrainian. "Bliskavka" - "Gazeta.Ru") is capable of speeds up to 2500 km / h. Military expert Oleg Zhdanov said that "now there is no means in the world that can bring down the Lightning."


The missile was presented at the military exhibition "Arms and Security-2019". The developers of the projectile note that the Su-27 and Su-24M aircraft “with minimal technical changes” will be equipped with “Lightning”.

At the same time, according to Zhdanov, the Ukrainian military will use Lightning to combat the Russian Navy.

In the middle of this summer, the former secretary of the Council on National Security and Defense (NSDC) of Ukraine, Alexander Turchinov, said that Kyiv could use Neptune cruise missiles to destroy the Crimean bridge.

"Neptune" - a subsonic low-altitude anti-ship missile (RCC), designed to destroy ships with a displacement of up to 5 thousand tons and ground targets. Designed by Luch Design Bureau. The serial production of rockets of this type will be handled by the state-owned enterprise VIZAR.


The missile is equipped with an MS-400 turbojet engine, which represents a further development of the TRDD-50 propulsion system used on the Soviet X-35 anti-ship missile.

Neptune can be used from ships, aircraft and ground launchers. The maximum range of its firing is 300 km, the mass of a high-explosive fragmentation warhead is 150 kg, the marching flight speed is 0.8-0.85 Mach numbers. Missiles of the X-35 type and their analogues, of which the Neptunes are precise, do not possess extraordinary technical characteristics and are not capable of attacking a ship or a squad of warships with modern air defense systems.

It is worth noting that the defense of the Crimean bridge is built according to the A2 / AD (anti-access/area denial) system. That is, land, sea and air are protected around the facility - the Panzer, Tor, Buk-M2 and the latest S-400 Triumph air defense systems are on duty.


In early October last year, Ukrainian military expert Valentin Barak said that the defense industry of Ukraine creates missiles that can "reach Moscow." Ukraine is in conflict with Russia, he is convinced, and because of this "there has been a serious upsurge in the development of military technologies in the country - engineers are able to produce more than the armed forces of Ukraine can take into service."


Barack added that new long-range missiles could "change the rhetoric of negotiations," because Kyiv, "armed with a hundred or two of these missiles," will be able to dictate its conditions to Moscow. In addition, due to the force of arms with a radius of destruction of 1,500 km, Ukraine will be able to “defend its position” in the field of integration into NATO and the European Union.

All discussions on the topic of Russian “aggression” in Ukraine take place under the auspices of a resolution of the Verkhovna Rada adopted several years ago. At the beginning of 2015, the Rada adopted a statement in which it called Russia the “aggressor country,” since Kyiv believes that Moscow is interfering in the country's affairs. The innovation also enshrined the concept of “Russian aggression”. The Russian Foreign Ministry in response called such allegations "public insinuations," noting the unprovenness of such allegations.


It is worth noting that despite the presence of the post-Soviet infrastructure necessary for the construction of missiles, Kyiv has no intercontinental ballistic missiles and nuclear warheads. After the collapse of the USSR, independent Ukraine got a substantial nuclear arsenal of 1.7 thousand nuclear warheads, 176 intercontinental missiles

In 1994, Ukraine, Russia, the United States and Great Britain signed the Budapest Memorandum - an international agreement on security guarantees in connection with Ukraine's accession to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. In accordance with this document, the nuclear arsenal in Ukraine was eliminated.


In addition, although Ukraine got a powerful industry for the construction of military equipment and weapons, experts note its decline - especially after the deterioration of relations with the Russian Federation and the introduction of a regime of mutual sanctions.
