"Having successfully hit the above-water targets, the upgraded S-125 missiles proved their efficiency. A total of eight launches were made and eight surface targets were destroyed. This is an outstanding result which proves that these upgraded systems are capable of providing reliable protection against aggression both from the air and from the sea and will significantly enhance defense of the Black and Azov Sea coasts," Turchynov said.

Upon completion of the test, the NSDC Secretary held a meeting with the leading missile developers and the military leadership to determine priorities in strengthening defense of the Black Sea and Azov Sea regions. The meeting took place in a new specialшяув command-and-control center which was involved in adjusting missile fire.
