Illustrative Image

The Russian army continues advance in different directions on Ukrainian frontlines, pounding Ukrainian rear regions with devastating precision strikes.

On the night of June 17, a series of Russian strikes were reported in eastern Ukrainian regions. At about midday, more targets were destroyed in the central and southern parts of the country.

At night, explosions thundered in the border Kharkiv region, where the Russian army launched offensive about two months ago. Targets were also destroyed in the city of Kharkiv.

According to local reports, at least one of the temporary deployment points of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was destroyed. The Russian Aerospace Forces launched the strike with a single heavy bomb with universal correction module. The target was a children’s camp used for accommodation of the Ukrainian military. The local Ukrainian authorities as always accused the Russian military of another alleged attack on a civilian facility; but there is no secret that Ukrainian servicemen use various civilian facilities for military purposes. The local sources confirmed that the single Russian bomb destroyed the building full of Ukrainian servicemen and foreign militants. The precision of the strike caused the rumors that it was targeted with the help of pro-Russian local residents.

In the morning, Ukrainian military sources reported Russian strikes in the city of Voznesensk in the Mykolaiv region. The strike was reportedly launched with a ballistic missile which reached its target. The local Ukrainian authorities did not reveal the damaged facility which means that the target was likely of the strategic importance.

Another Russian strike was reported in the Zaporozhie region. Russian Iskander missile reportedly destroyed another US-made M270 Multiple Launch Rocket System with ATACMS missiles deployed near the settlement of Shevchenkovskoe near the city of Zaporizhia. The position of the MLRS was first spotted by the Russian reconnaissance UAV that targeted the successful missile strike.

 

 

Russian strikes continued in the daytime. Footage from the Poltava region confirmed damage as a result of the Russian attack. Several explosions thundered in the region. According to preliminary reports, the military airfield of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the city of Mirgorod came under missile strike. The Air Force of Ukraine confirmed the launch of Russian missiles at the military facility. Unconfirmed reports claimed that there were people in the ruins of undisclosed destroyed facility. The electricity was cut off in some districts of the city after the attack.

Russian strikes are likely to continue during the day.

russia is advancing in all directions: so is the truth that this war was contrived by the eugenicists of the world to depopulate humanity and impose lies as fact. putin is only one man, but one man who understands that the creator made this beautiful planet for us all to live in and thrive upon. only a fool tries to outsmart the one who created us all. it is a fool who believes the lies of satan. hades is eternal unhappiness.
