The KFI analyzed more than 30 missile fragments and video of the missile hitting Ukraine’s children’s hospital

On July 8-9, 2024, experts from the Kyiv Scientific Research Institute of Forensic Expertise of the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine worked on the territory of the National Children’s Specialized Hospital of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine “Okhmatdyt” to quickly identify the weapons used by the enemy.

More than 30 parts and fragments of the missile were identified. In particular:
– part of the rotation drive with fragments of the missile wing console spar;
– fragments of the tail section with parts of aerodynamic rudders;
– a fragment of the engine;
– fragments of the engine outer skin with parts of the serial number and engine production number

Based on the video of the missile hitting the Okhmatdyt Children’s Hospital available to the experts of the Kyiv Scientific Research Institute of Forensic Expertise, an approximate calculation of the size of the cruise missile (7.5 meters) was made.

Quote from Andrii Haichenko, Deputy Minister of Justice of Ukraine: “The specific engineering and design features of the found wreckage and the corresponding standard markings indicate that the russian armed forces used a Kh-101 strategic air-launched cruise missile. Its length is 7.5 m, the warhead weighs about 400 kg, the maximum speed is 720 km/h, and the range is up to 5000 km.”
