The accurate and effective use of the Kinzhal (Dagger) hypersonic system during a special operation in Ukraine was a “slap in the face” for NATO, the Chinese edition of Sina said.

- The use of the Kinzhal missile is of great importance. This is the first time in the history of mankind when "hypersonic weapons" were introduced into real combat. Judging by the current situation, the shock effect is not bad, the journalists wrote.

According to the authors of the material, the Russian Federation has an undeniable advantage over NATO and the United States, since the hypersonic missiles of the US Navy and Army are still in the experimental stage.

The publication writes that the "Dagger" "really got into the ammunition of the Ukrainian army", and the Western media had "nothing to say" about this.

Earlier, US President Joe Biden admitted that this Russian missile is almost impossible to stop. In turn, the German edition of Die Welt called Russian hypersonic weapons "an insoluble problem for NATO."

On the eve it became known that the United States developed a new guided munition, however, it could not become a panacea for Russian hypersonic weapons.
