Russia claims to have struck Ukrainian military positions in Donbas, Mykolaiv

(MENAFN) Russia claims to have used high-precision munitions to attack five Ukrainian army command centers in the Donbas and Mykolaiv districts.

Russia's Defense Ministry said on Saturday that its missiles also hit three storage facilities in Zaporizhzhia. According to the government, the Russian air force attacked a Ukrainian weapons and equipment depot at a tractor plant in the northeastern city of Kharkiv.

Earlier in the day, Mykolaiv's mayor reported huge explosions shook the city, a day after at least 19 people were killed and others were injured in missile attacks in Ukraine's Odessa region following the departure of Russian soldiers and NATO's threat of a full-scale war.

“There are powerful explosions in the city! Stay in shelters!” Oleksandr Senkevich posted on Telegram.

The cause of the explosions was not precisely identified.

The Ukrainian army has released video footage purporting to show an explosion at Russian army stores in eastern Ukraine. The footage showed a huge explosion, with flames and smoke billowing into the sky. The precise location, date, and other information concerning the occurrence were not accessible.
