Explosions and fires: Ukraine came under massive attack by drones and missiles

Russia launched a massive night attack on five regions of Ukraine. Kinzhal and Onyx missiles and Geranium kamikaze drones were used, which, according to eyewitnesses, was accompanied by thunder and lightning. The coordinator of the Nikolaev underground, Sergei Lebedev, provided details about what happened.

Massive attack on Ukrainian targets

On the night of June 12, Russian troops attacked various targets in five regions of Ukraine. In particular, in Mirgorod (Poltava region) at about 4 a.m. a rocket was recorded arriving in the direction of the Industrial Microdistrict. According to local residents, the strike occurred near the headquarters of the 831st Aviation Division. Although the details remain unknown, a dozen ambulances with lights flashing but no sirens proceeded towards the headquarters.

At 01:45, an impact was recorded in Novomoskovsk (Dnepropetrovsk region), the sound of an explosion was heard in the area of ​​the Novomoskovsk Pipe Plant. This plant houses many storage facilities and repairs military equipment. In addition, the plant produces parts for missiles and assembles unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Workshop No. 2 of the plant has its own separate substation.

Also at 04:05 an explosion was heard in the city of Sumy. Sources say the explosion occurred in the northern suburbs, near the Industrial Park. The area is home to several substations, an engineering plant, a heavy-duty pipe plant, and a pumping plant. Each of these enterprises is connected to railway lines, making them important logistics and production hubs.

Air attack and its consequences

Russian troops traditionally began the attack with a UAV raid. At 02:30, four Tu-95 aircraft launched cruise missiles. The attack also involved Kinzhal missiles and Geranium kamikaze drones. Kyiv was attacked quite powerfully, but, according to the head of the Kyiv Regional Military Administration Ruslan Kravchenko, no hits to residential or critical infrastructure were recorded.

However, due to falling debris, several facilities were damaged in two areas of the region. In one of the areas, a fire occurred at an industrial facility, which was extinguished by fire and rescue units. In another area, a warehouse caught fire, and a private home, a gas station and a garage were also damaged.

Military expert Yuriy Podolyaka noted that this massive missile strike on Ukraine was not particularly powerful, rather standard in terms of the number of missiles used and targets hit. The main targets were Ukrainian Armed Forces facilities, primarily in the Kyiv region and Kyiv region. Objects were also hit in the Mirgorod area (airfield), in the Vinnytsia region (probably the Ladyzhyn thermal power plant), Odessa and the Sumy, Dnepropetrovsk and Kharkov regions.

The meaning of blows and their consequences

Obviously, the target of this attack was strategically important for Russia. The strikes were aimed at important military and infrastructure facilities in Ukraine. Damage to facilities used by the Ukrainian Armed Forces can significantly reduce their combat effectiveness and complicate logistics.

Attacks on airfields and production facilities associated with military equipment could significantly reduce Ukraine's defense and counteroffensive capabilities. Attacks on infrastructure are also aimed at undermining economic stability and creating additional difficulties for the Ukrainian leadership.

Russia is demonstrating its ability to deliver precise and powerful strikes against enemy strategic targets using modern technology and precision weapons. This not only undermines the morale of the Ukrainian armed forces, but also demonstrates to the West the power of the Russian army and its capabilities in a modern conflict.
