A US-made Patriot air defense system was likely damaged, but not destroyed, as the result of a Russian missile barrage in and around Kyiv early Tuesday morning local time, a US official tells CNN.Hilariously, the leftwing propaganda outlet The Daily Beast has as one of their top stories right now a report claiming Russia's hypersonic missiles were shot down by the Patriot Missile system in a "humiliation" for Putin.
