Quote: "Over the past day, the Ukrainian Air Force has delivered six strikes on clusters of occupiers’ personnel and military equipment. Units of missile troops and artillery hit eight areas of concentration of enemy manpower, weapons and military equipment, a fuel and lubricants storage point, two anti-aircraft missile systems, an artillery unit at its firing position, as well as an electronic warfare station."

Details: Over the course of the past 24 hours, Russian forces carried out 5 missile strikes and 12 airstrikes, and deployed multiple-launch rocket systems (MLRS) to conduct 20 further attacks.

Unable to reach the desired result on the battlefield, the Russian Federation continues to use terror tactics against the civilian population.

On Friday, the Russian Federation launched another missile attack on civilian infrastructure in the city of Zaporizhzhia and other Ukrainian settlements, using ballistic missiles. The Russian army also used six Shakhed-136 type UAVs for airstrikes – all of them were shot down by Ukraine's defenders.
