Wreckage of the rocket, known in Russia as the ‘dagger’, falls on an empty football stadium in Kyiv.

Ukraine has intercepted a Russian hypersonic missile for the first time, it has been reported.

Local media reports suggested air-defence units operating the highly-advanced, US-provided Patriot missile system could have been responsible for the unprecedented feat.

Images purportedly showing the fragments of a downed Kh-47M2 Kinzhal missile, which Russia claims can fly at 10 times the speed of sound, were published by the Ukrainian Defence Express outlet.

The wreckage of the missile, known in Russia as the “dagger”, fell on an empty football stadium in Kyiv after a loud explosion was reported in the early hours of Thursday morning.

The bang coincided with a long-range Russian barrage using Iranian-made drones and less sophisticated missiles targeting the Ukrainian capital, according to local administrators, who did not confirm the use of a hypersonic missile.

Pictures of the remains appeared to show a hole in the top of the weapon’s pointed shell, reportedly created by a precision munition, while the rocket was still mid-air.

The Defence Express outlet claimed it had “obviously” been intercepted by a newly-acquired Patriot missile system.

A soldier from the Ukrainian air-defence team responsible for the interception confirmed the Kinzhal had been destroyed by the US-donated system, in a tweet that has since been deleted.

The unit reportedly detected, tracked and downed the missile in its final stages of flight, when it starts to slow down.

Officials from Ukraine’s Air Force refused to comment on the claims.
Before the apparent interception there were no known successful attempts in taking out the hypersonic weapon, which had been dubbed “unstoppable” by the Kremlin.

Russian forces first used the Kinzhal in combat in Ukraine on March 29 last year, when the missile was used to strike a fuel depot.

The missile, which is fired from specially adapted Mig-31 jet fighters, has a claimed range of up 1,900 miles.

According to Russian claims, the missile cannot be downed by any of the West’s most advanced air-defence systems

Until the delivery of Patriot systems to Ukraine, Kyiv’s armed forces said they had no way of intercepting the hypersonic rocket.

This story is already being disputed. Besides Hypersonic missiles are not infallible/unbeatable. That said the Patriot missile doesn't have a great track record.

The story need not to be disputed everyone has already taken the side of the story he want to believe , how can an explosive missile be intercepted by an explosive air defense system and remain intact without explosion from either the interceptor or the missile itself, that looks like it was destroyed by an arrow just so many lies in war we just don't know the real battle situation in Ukraine both side lie a lot

You intercepted a missile and it looks like you pinch a peak milk can to drink the content.
Go ahead and believe whatever you want though.
But I’d advise you to think a bit.

Fact that Russian military did not even used any Hypersonic missiles on Ukraine since few weeks now, show its was a fake news by some pro-Ukraine on telegram.
If Ukraine truly shoot down Russian hypersonic missiles, USA would have been the first to announce it, because they(USA) will take the Russian hypersonic missiles remaining parts to USA to study.

Already wrote about why Kinzhal isn't invincible, however. Has anyone noticed that the top-right picture looks like it's made of concrete? What gives?
