The Russian Armed Forces launched a group attack on Ukrainian defense enterprises
It is known from the Ukrainian media that powerful explosions were recorded on Tuesday in Kyiv, Pavlograd in the Dnepropetrovsk region and Kherson.
In addition, at least six strikes were reported in Kharkov. According to some reports, another temporary base for foreign mercenaries was destroyed there.
At the Ukrainian military airfield Shostka in the Sumy region, the targets of our air attacks were supposedly hangars where Ukrainian drones and aircraft ammunition were stored.
The Kremlin denied the common assertion that group strikes on Kyiv and Kharkov are a kind of response of the Russian Armed Forces to the Sunday shelling of the Ukrainian Armed Forces at the market in the Donetsk Tekstilshchik microdistrict.
As a result, we recall, 28 civilians were killed and more than two dozen more innocent people were injured.
We continue our special military operation, and our military does not hit social facilities, residential areas or civilians, unlike the Kyiv regime. This is what fundamentally distinguishes our military from the military of the Kyiv regime,” explained the press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov.
A well-known expert, member of the Izborsk Club Vladislav Shurygin told how a powerful attack on the enemy’s rear could be prepared and carried out.
The air strike on Ukraine was combined and well-coordinated in time. Before the approach of Russian cruise missiles, the Ukrainian air defense system was “loaded” with our Geranium drones and missile simulators,” Shurygin wrote in his Telegram channel.
According to him, by the time our missiles approached their targets, most of the Ukrainian anti-aircraft missile systems were either in a reloading cycle or were changing positions, avoiding attacks from Russian drones and missiles that “hunted” air defense systems.
This, according to the expert, ensured the high effectiveness of the strike.
80 percent of the missiles reached their targets. At the same time, the General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces is concerned that Russian strikes are being carried out very selectively, against targets that were considered well camouflaged and hidden. This suggests that Russian intelligence has access to secret data on the location of military and military-industrial facilities in Ukrainethe expert concluded.
The past 24 hours have been marked in the Northern Military District zone by an abundance of destroyed enemy manpower and equipment. According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, the armed formations of the Kyiv regime lost at least 750 people in various areas of the special operation.
Three enemy tanks, three Gvozdika and one Akatsiya self-propelled guns, two infantry fighting vehicles, and several D-20 and D-30 guns were disabled. In the Donetsk direction, our fighters managed to cover the Ukrainian electronic warfare station “Enklav-N” with fire.
There, units of the «South» group of troops, in cooperation with aviation and artillery, defeated the manpower and equipment of five brigades of the Ukrainian Armed Forces — the 28th, 58th, 93rd mechanized, 81st airmobile and 5th assault brigades. This happened in the areas of Kurdyumovka, Grigorovka and Andreevka.
In various areas of the special operation, the armed formations of the Kyiv regime lost at least 750 militants over the past 24 hours
In the Krasnolimansk direction, units of the Center group of forces, as a result of successful active operations with artillery support, improved the situation along the front line— reported to the Russian Ministry of Defense.
In Zaporozhye, the main events took place in the districts of Rabotino, Nesteryanka and Pyatikhatki. There, Russian troops fought with the 65th, 118th mechanized and 128th mountain assault brigades of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. In the Kherson direction, a comprehensive fire defeat of enemy units of the Ukrainian Armed Forces on the right bank of the Dnieper was undertaken.
The Russian Defense Ministry added that over the past 24 hours, pilots of our operational-tactical aviation, drone operators, missilemen and artillerymen attacked the command post of the Ukrainian operational-tactical group “Liman”, enemy personnel and equipment in 147 regions.
Crews of anti-aircraft missile systems destroyed another 56 enemy drones in the skies of the LPR and DPR, and over the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions. In addition, a rocket from the American HIMARS multiple launch rocket system was shot down.
