‘The forest is burning’ Enormous smoke cloud as rockets rain down on Russia-occupied land

In recent weeks, high-precision aerial attacks have hit ammunitions depots, killing and injuring Russian soldiers.

As well as utilising US-made HIMARS missiles, Ukrainian servicemen are also being trained in UK-made long-range missile systems, which are expected to allow precision hits at a range of up to 50 miles.

Last week, the UK Ministry of Defence said Ukrainian artillery and missile units were continuing to target Russian military “strongholds, personnel clusters, logistical support bases and ammunition depots”.

It added these precision attacks would “highly likely impact Russian military logistical resupply and put pressure on Russian military combat support elements”.
