Addis Ababa, June 13, 2022 (FBC) – Russia says its forces have managed to destroy American and European weapons in eastern Ukraine, where heavy fighting is under way between Russian and Ukrainian troops.
Since the onset of Russia’s “special military operation” in Ukraine on February 24, the United States and its European allies have been pouring batches of advanced weapons into the ex-Soviet country.
Russia has time and again warned the West’s flood of weapons will not force Moscow to end the operation before achieving its objectives. The Kremlin says the unprecedented sanctions against Russia, plus the flow of arms into Ukraine, would only prolong the war.
On Monday, Russia’s Defense Ministry said its high-precision air-based missiles had destroyed a large quantity of weapons and military equipment in Ukraine’s eastern Donbas region, including some that had been supplied by the US and its European allies.
“High-precision air-launched missiles destroyed – in the area of the Udachne railway station in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic – a large number of weapons and military equipment delivered for Ukrainian nationalist groups, including from the United States and European countries,” said the ministry in a statement.
The defense ministry on Sunday said the military had destroyed a large depot containing US and European weapons in western Ukraine’s Ternopil region with Kalibr cruise missiles.
