Passed November 25, Ukraine, the note did indeed contain an indication of the fact that the Russian side will bring down the Ukrainian rocket during the announced by the Ministry of defense of Ukraine firing on 1 and 2 December — in the case that they will present a danger. This was confirmed by “Vedomosti” the press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov.
About the protest of the Ministry of defense of Russia against firings that affect the airspace over the Russian territorial waters in the Crimea, the defense Ministry itself reported November 25 — this statement was contained in a military-diplomatic note to the Ukrainian military attache in Moscow, but about the promise to shoot down threatening missiles in the message is not mentioned.

According to the interlocutor of “Vedomosti”, the interception of anti-aircraft missiles 5В55 complex With-300 In a theoretically probable when mutual selection of shooting modes of both complexes, which in this case is impossible. To intercept the rocket from “Tornado” is quite real, says retired Colonel Viktor murakhovski.
