Ukrainian Air Force aircraft in southern Ukraine attacked a Russian stronghold and four clusters of enemy manpower and military equipment on August 16.
Ukraine’s Operational Command South said this in a Facebook post, Ukrinform reports.
Ukrainian aircraft launched the attack near Pravdyne, Arkhanhelske, Olhyne, Bilohirka, and Novopetrivka.
Rocket and artillery units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine killed 15 Russian soldiers and destroyed an anti-tank missile system and six vehicles, including armored vehicles.
On February 24, Russia began a new phase of its eight-year war against Ukraine – an all-out invasion.
Meanwhile Russia blamed saboteurs for explosions at one of its military bases in Moscow-annexed Crimea while Ukraine hinted it was responsible as its officials said their strategy was to destroy supply lines supporting Russia’s invasion.
The blasts on Tuesday engulfed an ammunition depot at a military base in the north of the Crimean peninsula, disrupting trains and forcing the evacuation of 2,000 people from a village, according to Russian officials and news agencies.
