Moscow Claims To Have Destroyed A Foreign Arms Depot In Ukraine

In a rare strike on western Ukraine, Russia said on Wednesday that it had destroyed a depot of foreign arms near the city of Lviv.

“Air-launched high-precision long-range missiles destroyed a storage base containing foreign-made weapons and ammunition delivered to the Kyiv regime from Poland,” the defence ministry said in a statement.

The statement did not specify what types of weapons were destroyed in the attack on Radekhiv, which is located about 60 kilometres (37 miles) northeast of Lviv.

According to the ministry, four warehouses containing rockets, artillery weapons, and ammunition were also destroyed in the southern region of Mykolaiv and the eastern region of Donetsk.

On February 24, President Vladimir Putin sent troops into Ukraine, igniting a conflict that has killed thousands, displaced millions, and fueled fears of a global food crisis due to blocked grain exports.

After abandoning attempts to take Ukraine’s capital, Kyiv, Russian troops have shifted their focus to the eastern region of Donbas.

In recent weeks, the Ukrainian army has attempted to stage a counter-offensive to retake the southern region of Kherson, aided by deliveries of Western-supplied long-range artillery.
