BREAKING: Russian Ammunition Depot Explodes After Ukraine Strike With 2 US-Made HIMARS Missiles
According to reports from thesunuk, A RUSSIAN ammunition depot in occupied Makiivka has been destroyed in a massive explosion reportedly caused by two US-made HIMARS missiles.
Dramatic footage shows how the strike sparked a huge fireball in the city in the Russian-held Donetsk region.
The video shows the fireball blast in the sky, followed by another explosion.
The late-night attack left one person dead and 36 wounded, according to Russian media.
Pro-Moscow outlet Readovka reported: “The monstrous explosion shook the whole of Donetsk….
“Most likely – this is a Himars MLRS missile strike.”
The Ukrainian armed forces said an ammunition depot had been destroyed.
Kyiv’s strategic communication office said: “As a result of precision firing by defence forces units, another formation of Russian terrorists in the temporarily occupied Makiivka ceased to exist.”
The pro-Russian puppet leader of the so-called Donetsk People’s Republic, Denis Pushilin, said: “Late in the evening, the enemy launched fierce attacks on residential areas and a hospital complex.”
Ukrainian forces have previously claimed they have made advances in the region, just ten miles from the Russian-controlled city of Makiivka.
Meanwhile, the Kursk and Belgorod regions came under fire from Ukrainian forces across the border early in the morning, according to the region’s governor.
Belgorod Governor Vyacheslav Gladkov said on Telegram: “The town of Valuyki is under fire from Ukraine’s armed forces.
“Air defence system worked, but there is destruction on the ground.”
While Roman Starovoyt, the governor of the Kursk region, said that a school and a private house were damaged when the village of Tyotkino was hit.
It comes as yesterday Ukrainian fighters blitzed a military base near Moscow in a kamikaze drone attack.
The hit on the key Kubinka military air base, some 48 miles southwest of the Kremlin, was followed by a series of aerial attacks, forcing a major airport in the area, used by Vladimir Putin, to close its airspace.
Another wave of drones led to the diversion of at least ten incoming domestic and international flights at Vnukovo airport.
Last month Ukrainian forces claimed they had destroyed a “significant” ammunition depot in Russian-controlled Kherson.
The hit, reportedly carried out by British-supplied Storm Shadow missiles, sparked a huge fireball blast in the region.
And in May, a wave of drone attacks was unleashed at a Russian oil depot, sparking a massive blaze.
The inferno at the port of Taman covered almost 13,000 square feet and almost 85 firefighters were tackling the fire.
