Ukrainian defenders fire barrages of missiles at Russian targets

Ukrainian troops fired rockets at Russian targets from a mobile launch vehicle, military leaders say.

Operational Command West (OC West), a formation of Ukraine’s ground forces, said the attack was carried out by members of the 24th Mechanized Brigade, named after King Daniel.

The King Daniel Unit, a mechanized brigade of Ukraine’s ground forces, successfully destroyed their targets in Ukraine’s easternmost region of Luhansk Oblast, according to OC West.

The Ukrainian military said on May 24: “Rocket artillerymen of the 24th Mechanized Brigade named after King Daniel destroyed the enemy in the Luhansk region.”

Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24 in what the Kremlin called a “military special operation” to “protect Donbass.”

May 25 marks the 91st day of the invasion.

The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) reported earlier on Wednesday that Russia lost about 29,350 soldiers between February 24 and May 24.

The AFU General Staff added that Russia also has 1,302 tanks, 3,194 armored fighting vehicles, 606 artillery systems, 201 multiple missile systems, 93 anti-aircraft systems, 205 aircraft, 170 helicopters, 2,213 motor vehicles and fuel tankers, 13 ships, 480 unmanned aerial vehicles, 43 units with special equipment and 112 cruise missiles in the same period.

According to the UK Ministry of Defense, Russian forces are currently attempting to encircle the eastern cities of Sievierodonetsk, Lysychansk and Rubishne.

If the strategic eastern Ukrainian city of Sievierodonetsk falls under Russian control, Russia and the so-called Luhansk People’s Republic will control almost the entire Luhansk Oblast.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, meanwhile, has said that Russian troops are trying to destroy “everything living” in the contested Donbass region, but he reiterated that his country remains ready to exchange prisoners with Russia.

Zelensky also said that Ukraine is determined to regain control of the southern cities of Kherson, Melitopol, Berdiansk, Enerhodar and Mariupol, which are currently occupied by Russian forces.

Jailed Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny condemned Russian President Vladimir Putin in a live court hearing on Tuesday, calling him a “maniac” who started a “stupid war” in Ukraine.
