One of the bombing stronger than Russia carried out last night took place in the Ukrainian city of Khmelnytskyprecisely on a industrial facility where they were stored weapons to assist in combat.
“Unfortunately, there are enemy drone strikes on infrastructure in the Khmelnytsky region. Local authorities and services are working to assess the damage and make all preliminary preparations to restore damaged property,” the Ukrainian Air Force reported at first, calling on people in the area to “remain in shelters and stay safe.” except”.
The images released hours later show the exact moment in which the missiles hit this site and, then, an intense black cloud of smoke is generated that spreads through the area.
President Volodimir Zelensky’s spokeswoman, Iuliia Mendel, confirmed that it was attacks coming from both north and south and that was used in them the Shahid-136/131 UAVs, Iranian-made.
As a consequence of this operation, five people were injured by glass fragments and recorded damage to windows, doors, roofs, and educational and medical institutions -among others- due to the strong shock waves.
Two of the injured were hospitalized and the remaining three were assisted by health personnel and transferred to a center for outpatient treatment, added the mayor of Khmelnytsky.
In any case, thanks to the fact that it is not a highly populated area, the human victims were fewer than those that usually occur when Moscow directly attacks the civilian population.
It is further believed that the bombed facility was a weapons depot -many of them, those provided by the West-, whose losses could be millions.
This attack took place the same night that the Kremlin ordered a new wave of offensives on the country, in which it used 21 drones provided by the Persian regime.
However, this technology appears to be less and less effective for Putin’s troops as Zelensky’s army successfully managed to shoot down 17 of them with their new air defense units. Precisely, they used anti-aircraft missile weapons, fighters and mobile fire groups.
During the last air alert over the capital, which lasted 2.5 hours, “all enemy drones heading for kyiv were successfully destroyed. No damage or injuries were reported in the capital,” celebrated the head of the local military administration, Serhii Popko.
This episode followed another heavy defeat for Moscow on May 4 in which Ukraine shot down an enemy hypersonic missile with one of the defense systems patriot.
It was the first time the country managed to hit a projectile Kh-47 which, according to Putin, is impossible to intercept.
