(JustPatriots.com)- From May 19 through May 26, the military forces of the Russian Federation have launched a total of 63 missile attacks and 41 airstrikes against the Ukrainian government. The enemy’s primary focus was on destroying the facilities responsible for the rail transport infrastructure. ]
During a briefing held at the Ukraine Media Center–Ukrinform, Oleksiy Hromov, who serves as the Deputy Chief of the Main Operations Department of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, stated that missiles struck the inhabited areas of Soledar, Bakhmut, Kramatorsk, Bakhmutske, Ustymivka, Pokrovske, Lyman, Slovyansk, Zaporizhzhia, and Kryvyi Rih, among other places. According to Hromov, air raids were also carried out in Lyman, Sievierodonetsk, and Avdiivka.
On February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the beginning of a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Russian forces bombarded Ukrainian cities, towns, and villages by using artillery, multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS), and ballistic missiles, destroying infrastructure and opening heavy fire on residential neighborhoods.
The most recent information was shared on Facebook by Natalia Popova, who serves as an adviser to the head of the Kharkiv Regional Council and volunteers her time.
Her account suggests that the bombardment of the center area of the city resulted in the deaths of five individuals and injuries to ten others, one of whom was a child.
Popova emphasized that “this is still preliminary information” and asked those living in the city to remain in the shelters for the time being.
Earlier, Head of the Kharkiv Regional Military Administration Oleh Synehubov reported that Russia’s bombardment of Kharkiv had resulted in the deaths of four persons and injuries to seven more people.
On Monday, the military leadership of Ukraine stated that Russia was attempting to disrupt weaponry supply from other nations by bombing Ukraine’s rail infrastructure.
The command of the armed forces posted on their Facebook page that “they are attempting to sever the supply lines for the military-technical support that comes from partner states. To do this, they concentrate their attacks on railway intersections.”
Such arms deliveries, according to Anatoly Antonov, Russia’s ambassador to the United States, are intended to weaken Russia, but they are only increasing the war in Ukraine and undermining efforts to establish a peace agreement.
In April, Russian airstrikes attacked five railway stations in central and western Ukraine in less than an hour, while the battle in the south and east of the nation continued unabated.
As the whole of Ukraine was placed under an unusually extended air raid alert for two hours on Monday morning, Oleksander Kamyshin, the chairman of Ukrainian Railways, claimed five railway stations came under fire, suffering an indeterminate number of injuries.
