The Russian attack has especially affected the Zaporizhia and Kharkiv regions and cities such as Kyiv, Odesa, and Lviv.
The Ukrainian Army has denounced that Russia has launched the largest missile attack against Ukraine since the Russian invasion began this past dawn. Ukrainian sources say that they have affected many regions of the country, including Zaporizhia and Kharkiv, and some cities such as Kyiv, Odesa, and Lviv.
A record number of “S-300″ type missiles were fired by Russian forces toward Ukraine last night, including up to 35 in the Kharkiv and Zaporizhia areas in the northeast and southeast, respectively. That was probably a record attack,” the spokesman said. of the Ukrainian Air Force, Yurii Ihnat, according to the Ukrinform agency.
The military representative has affirmed that the Russians use “these weapons to terrorize” and that Russia launches them further and further away and “in densely populated cities”.
He has added that Ukraine has every right to retaliate and destroy the launchers for these missiles wherever they are located. “Our warplanes attack these anti-aircraft missile systems with HARM anti-radar missiles every day. But for now, this is not enough. We need more powerful weapons and a proper response to the enemy who is terrorizing civilians,” Ihnat said.
The attack comes just two weeks before the first year of the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine and just hours after Ukraine’s President Volodimir Zelensky paid a visit to the UK and France and participated yesterday at the European Union Summit in Brussels.
