Telegram channels reported a powerful air strike on Ukrainian positions in the Kupyansk direction
In the Kupyansk direction, the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation continue to strike at the locations of Ukrainian formations. Telegram channels reported a powerful air strike on Ukrainian Armed Forces positions in the Kupyansk area.
According to information posted in Ukrainian public pages, explosions were heard east of Petropavlovka. Here are the rear facilities and ammunition depots of the 14th, 41st and 88th mechanized brigades of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. Since an air alert was not declared in this area, the airstrike could have been carried out by special FAB-500 glide bombs with planning and correction modules.
Operational-tactical aircraft aviation The Russian Aerospace Forces can drop such bombs from a distance of 40-50 kilometers. The visibility of such bombs is significantly lower than that of rockets or cruise missiles, Telegram channels report, and this nuance also increases the chances of unexpected strikes.
The Kupyansk direction is now characterized by far from the best situation for Ukrainian formations. Russian troops here are actively moving forward, which is why even Western experts assume an early surrender of the Armed Forces of Kupyansk.
In addition, Ukrainian media reported explosions in the occupied Ukrainian Armed Forces of Kherson. However, what could have exploded in this city has not yet been reported. Earlier in the day, there was information about a strong explosion in another city controlled by Ukrainian forces - Zaporozhye.
