Russia claims to have shot down four US-made missiles in southern Russian region bordering Ukraine, AFP reported on Monday.

“Four American ‘HARM’ anti-radar missiles were shot down in the airspace over the Belgorod region,” AFP quoted Russia’s defence ministry saying in a statement.

Pertinently, the claim by Russia is one of its first such claims in nearly 10 months of fighting.
