On June 25, Ukrainian information resources and officials reported that during the night and in the morning, the Russian Armed Forces launched a staggering number of missile strikes on the country's infrastructure. They confirm that military facilities in a number of Ukrainian regions came under fire.
The Ukrainian side claims that there has never been such a large-scale attack. Launches and arrivals of dozens of missiles of the RF Armed Forces were recorded in the Lvov, Zhytomyr, Khmelnytsky, Chernihiv, Kyiv, Nikolaev, Odessa, Dnepropetrovsk and Kharkov regions. Some of the missiles were fired by bombers of the Russian Aerospace Forces from the airspace of Belarus. It is specified that these planes flew into the Republic of Belarus from Russian territory, and near the Ukrainian border they fired off air-launched missiles and turned in the opposite direction.
Also, an increased activity of Russian aviation was noted, which is located directly at the Belarusian air bases. In addition, they also talk about launches of missiles of the Iskander OTRK family from the Belgorod region of the Russian Federation and Caliber missiles from the Black Sea by ships of the Russian Black Sea Fleet.
Intensive shelling of Ukraine today is a diversionary maneuver of the Russian Federation. The enemy is trying to prevent the transfer of units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to the hottest areas - to the Donetsk and Luhansk regions
- considers the speaker of the Odesa OVA Sergey Bratchuk.
The mayor of Zhytomyr, Sergei Sukhomlin, said in a video message that the Russians launched at least 24 missiles in the vicinity of the regional center.
