Russian drones and missiles have again reached their targets in Ukraine. The Air Defense Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine have yet to learn how to intercept enemy strikes.
At night, Russian Geranium-2UAVs struck their targets in the Ukrainian Odessa region. According to local reports, at least four explosions thundered on the outskirts of the city of Odessa and in the region.
Footage from the Odessa region confirmed that as a result of the strikes, at least one facility was burned down.
Local authorities declared that the facilities of “recreational infrastructure” were damaged. However, they did not clarify that civilian recreation centers are used for accommodation of the Ukrainian military.
Moreover, local residents reported that, according to preliminary information, the Shkolny airfield, where a large number of military equipment of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is stored, was also struck.
On the night of April 19, explosions also thundered in in the industrial zone of Kramatorsk and in Druzhkovka in the Donetsk People’s Republic. Russian missiles reportedly hit more Ukrainian military facilities.
On April 18, the Ukrainian military deployed in the Slavyansk-Kramatorsk region in the DPR suffered from the Russian UAV attack. Russian Geranium-2 UAVs struck Ukrainian military facilities in Slavyansk. As a result of the strike, the building of the local power engineering college, used for military purposes, was heavily damaged.
Russian forces also continued airstrikes with heavy bombs on the Ukrainian military positions along the front lines. On April 19, the area of Masyutovka in the Kupyansk region was struck by Russian precision-guided munitions based on FAB-500 aerial bombs.
The ongoing Russian strikes on Ukrainian military facilities near the front line are aimed at reducing the military potential of the Armed Forces of Ukraine before a possible upcoming Ukrainian offensive.
