On the evening of July 15, the Russian Armed Forces carried out massive strikes on enemy facilities in the city of Dnipro (Dnipropetrovsk) which is one of industrial centers of Ukraine. The main missile strikes targeted the Yuzhmash plant.
Yuzhmash is Ukraine’s leading enterprise for the production of technologies for the defense sector. It was founded back in 1944. The plant was an integral part of all the space projects of the USSR, where they produced launch vehicles.
Russian projects brought Yuzhmash more than 80% of all revenues. In 2014, Russian cooperation with the plant was stopped. In March of this year, former Roscosmos head Dmitry Rogozin claimed that Yuzhmash, which used Soviet designs, began to produce ballistic missiles that threatened Russia. Later there was information that this plant produced R-36 missiles, which in the 1960s were the most powerful in the world, as well as the famous SS-18 (“Satan”) strategic missile system and SS-24 missile system, it also produced components for missile equipment for the AFU.
Strikes on the Yuzhmash plant in Dnepropetrovsk were carried out by Russian Kynzhal hypersonic complexes. At least three missiles hit the target:
The Russian Ministry of Defense included the strikes on the plant in its daily report. It reads: “Attacks launched by high-precision long-range air-based armament have resulted in the elimination of workshops for producing components and repairing Tochka-U ballistic missiles, as well as MRLS projectiles in Yuzhny Machinery Plant located in Dnepropetrovsk.”

This was a necessary hit, the plant was being used by the enemy to produce and repair weapons. So yes.
Absolutely a necessary action, but the big picture is that Ukraine is excluding itself from high technology and space. US and Russia have just renewed space cooperation (even Russia moving someone out the way to enable it) – Russia has never sought US demise, just its (US) place in the world on equal terms – legal and political with everyone else – giving up hegemony). So US and Russian space industry will be smiling, collaborating and working together. Ukraine has not learnt that big nations look after themselves and only a fool small nation commits suicide for a big nation! The world goes on, big nation normal arrangements go on. It’s for Ukraine to decide does it want to exist in that world or commit suicide for the west! All we know is regardless afterwards the world will have moved on regardless if Ukraine is in it or not!
To the USA, what Russia has sought of them (giving up global hegemony) IS equivalent to US demise. Besides, their long-term goal (exploit Russia’s natural wealth) is never going to change. That’s why I believe it’s stupid of Putin to accomodate them with space cooperation. They brought FINLAND and Sweden to NATO, for God’s sake! They pay dozens of media outlets inside Russia to carry their stories and subvert people’s loyalties. They’ve transformed all social media (FB, Twitter, Insta, YT… even TikTok) to CIA and NATO controled venues. Why should Russia give them a ride to ISS? When they’re even using their satellites to provide precise coordinates that sink battleships with crew on board!
Your last sentence is valid for any country – substitute “Ukraine” with USA, Russia… It’s not about size, it’s about power and determination – look at the size of Israel and Egypt, or Talibans and USA… Putin shouldn’t let Russia’s arsenal get to his head because the entire NATO could gather a far larger arsenal if they commit to it. He should finish this business fast in order to commit to consolidating the new reality – if he’s allowed to do so, because every signal from the USA says the opposite. He should find a loyal successor, not in order to retire but in order to teach him and have someone ready in case anything happens to him. Otherwise, the moment Putin is gone, God only knows if Russia will remain standing…
I think it is hilarious that the guy Canada handed a big bag of cash to, who assured the canadians that their space port was coming because the war was no where near dnipro and the Russians had more important problems & would never reach there. Now Canada has – no space port, no rocket being built, no guy who sold them a bridge, and no bag of cash. wanna make a quick buck off shmucks? go to can’t-ada
Looks like ukraine is being bombed back to the stone age and all that NATO countries can do is to keep funding Putin’s war effort through their continuos purchase of Russian oil and gas.
Only now? It sou be hit on first day!
They would have just dispersed the repair facilities to numerous other areas. By waiting until now, they were able to catch them with multiple units and missiles in the facility and according to the article they were also housing HIMARS missiles there too (probably where they reloaded the pods). There must have been some real high priority items there for them to use three super accurate and super expensive hypersonic missiles on.
You fucking moron can’t even tell that the howitzers are not housed anywhere. They simply change positions every 24 hours. If you had any clue how the artillery works you wouldn’t be saying such a moronic statement. The cockroaches like you destroyed that facility because there’s nothing left for pieces of shit like you to destroy. You were just crossing your fingers there was something inside to destroy.
You’re literally insane. No sane person could ever believe the crap you shovel.
You’re are literally a murdering terrorist freak.
Your masters from CIA are murdering terrorist freaks and you are just their little filthy gay whore and a dumb piece of shit.
Never go full Netanyahu..
Lol… He went full Biden while riding his bike up the stairs to airforce 0.
you’re angry muhammad,you loose your mind and hope because allah saw is not on your side
What are you doing here, false prophet from Tel Aviv? Just spreading your filth, that nobody with a working mind would believe? Really? You are certainly completely fucked up!!!
False prophet 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
My son, I am your prophet! Zelensky is your messiah and Joe is your God.
Would you allow the Ukrainian military the oppertunity to reverse engineer the munition guidance systems for the HIMARS and start producing them domestically to support attacks on Russian civilians? Prolly not…
It is a clear sign the Russia has been holding back all the time since the begining of the conflict. Now the Ukranian army and goverment are suffering the “boiled frog effect”.
Holding back while they bury all the civilians they raped and murdered in mass graves. That’s the only thing holding the Putin terrorists back.
Russia has not put all of its cards on the table particularly in regard to its air force. NATO awaits
Perhaps not on the first day (command centers and SAMs are priority) but definitely in the first month or so. Oh well, better late than never 🙂
Of course the Putin terrorists were going to target it. That’s exactly why they’re terrorist cockroaches. Destroy civilian infrastructure and murder all the people he can. That’s what Vladimir Putin’s filthy looking bald head is telling him to do. After he finishes looking at his man tits in the mirror.
Its a weapons facility you retarded Bandera Ape,or it was.
It’s just another civilian infrastructure for terrorist cockroaches like you to destroy.
Missile Repair Facility + Muhammad your Prophet-level stupidity = “another civilian infrastructure”.
All military nodes are civilian in rump Ukraine. All civilian nodes are military in Donbass
There is one cockroach, here in this column and the name of that cockroach is Mohammed the Infidel. A zombie, zooming through life in a sea of ignorance.
I’m your prophet, you fucking asshole. Show some respect to your prophet and I’ll forgive you.
You are retarded pile of donkey manure spamming worthless garbage from your loser basement in desperate need of attention.
He’s not a “Bandera Ape”. Muhammad your Prophet is a psychotic, serial-lying jew.
You really should speak to your doctor about changing your meds. With every post you become just a little bit more demented and removed from real life.
You’re the one crying about it at the Southfront freakshow.
Can’t you see that everyone with a properly working brain vote you down? Why is that? It certainly has something to do with the stupidities in your nazi brainwashed little bump on your shoulders that you call a brain, loser!
With the red shitty numbers in the corner? The more the merrier.🤣🤣🤣🤣
“The more the merrier.” That’s what your mother said 🤣🤣🤣🤣
I did not realize swine & chimp mixes could articulate or do arithmetic.
Wow… it’s astounding how fast that missile was traveling in the first video.
this explains why the Deputy PM was fired and reassigned as head of space agency; he refused to give this order, then it was Rogo’s 1st act as the new head.
Nice job…I’m quite sure that Russian Military Intelligence is on the ground in 404 identifying and confirming targets for the RF armed forces to hit in order to put Ukronazi repair and rearmament facilities along with it’s war machine out of business.
Ukraine by its own choice has made a decision not to be a participant of the great technological development of the Soviet Union, instead of cooperating with their blood relatives, the Russians, the Ukrainians chose the shameful behavior of becoming an ass sniffer of the Anglo Saxon colonizers. People get what they choose and what they strive for. Ukrainians chose to be vassals of the west, they got that. Vassals live on welfare and they don’t produce technology. Vassals are useless ticks.
So well said, nothing to add to your comment.
Not all asshols are hohols but all hohols are asshols.
These facilities should have been blown up on day 7th of the war
more fun to blow up their resources a few days after blowing up the direction setters. also blow up all that lovely money Canada gave the Holhols to build a space port with. Somehow I dont think you will be seeing any of that money back. or the guy you gave it to.
Boom boom, out go the lights.
