The hardware was hit near the town of Pokrovsk, located some 67km north-west of the Russian region’s capital, Donetsk, the ministry said in a statement on Saturday.

The attack on the S-300 was carried out with the use of Iskander short-range ballistic missiles, the statement read.

Drone footage of the strike shows the Ukrainian air defense system being consumed by a large explosion.

The S-300 is a Soviet-designed surface-to-air missile system, which has been in service since the late 1970s and exists in multiple variants.

While Ukraine only has S-300s in its arsenal, Russia also operates the more advanced S-400 and S-500 systems.
