After being shot down, the warhead of the missile can cause damage due to cluster submunitions.

The Russian terrorist army employed a new modification of the Kh-101 missile to strike Kyiv on June 12.

Military expert Ivan Kyrychevskyi from Defence Express explained the danger of this weapon in an interview with the Espreso TV channel.

"One of the warheads has a cluster configuration, and the problem is that if this missile is shot down, the cluster munitions still fall out of the missile and hit the target over a large area," he explained.

According to him, previously, after a missile was shot down, its unexploded warhead no longer posed a threat, but now it can cause damage due to the cluster submunitions.

"This also explains the paradox that although all missiles were shot down, the debris caused significant damage because the wreckage is equipped with cluster munitions," Ivan Kyrychevskyi said.
