"Operators of the 3rd separate regiment of the SSO, during reconnaissance operations in one of the hottest areas, discovered the Buk-M1 anti-aircraft missile system of the enemy, which was preparing to launch missiles," the message reads.

Fighters handed over the coordinates of the Russian target to the missile and artillery unit of the Ukrainian Defense Forces.
