Russian forces may soon launch assault on Vuhledar
Oleksii Dmytrashkivskyi, spokesman for the Tavriia Front Defence Forces Joint Press Centre, believes that Russia will soon begin assault operations near the city of Vuhledar in Donetsk Oblast.
He said the invaders struck Vuhledar six times on Saturday, 22 April using aircraft.
"The enemy is using the tactics of scorched earth.
This is done to prevent our defenders from holding the line anywhere.
Houses are being destroyed; in the military slang, they call it 'taking houses apart', floor by floor, and this is happening in both [cities of] Bakhmut and Vuhledar" - reported Oleksii Dmytrashkivskyi.
Russians conduct coordinated airstrikes from four Su-35s on Kherson Oblast
The Russian occupiers have conducted an aerial bomb attack with Su-35 fighter jets on the Kherson district.
The Russians reportedly dropped five KAB-500 bombs from four aircrafts.
Private residential buildings were damaged. According to the military, there were no casualties. Lancet drones also attacked the area.
The Times earlier reported that Russia has improved its FAB-500 bomb by giving it wings and a GPS system, allowing it to be dropped from a military aircraft and fly to its intended target.
At the same time the Russian aircraft do not enter hostile airspace, staying away from Ukraine's anti-air defence systems.
