Russian troops continue to carry out precise strikes on military facilities of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, including warehouses, fuel depots and strategic railway tracks.
Since the beginning of the Russian military operation, the Ukrainian military has used civilian infrastructure for military purposes. After a direct strike on the military bases of the AFU throughout Ukraine, many military bases and depots were organized in various civilian facilities. As soon as these places are discovered and destroyed by Russian missiles, Kiev officials use videos of the attacks as another fake proof of Russia’s inhumane warfare.
The use of civilian facilities for storing weapons only helps the Ukrainian military in the media, but does not protect it from Russian strikes.
On May 20, a series of strikes were carried out on their targets in different regions of Ukraine.
The Russian Armed Forces struck the city of Lozovaya in the Kharkiv region. As a result, the building of the local Palace of Culture was destroyed. The attack was presumably carried out by a Tu-22M3 long-range bomber with an X-22 cruise missile.
According to intelligence, the building was used as a temporary warehouse of weapons and ammunition, including those coming from Western countries. Judging by the video, the large explosion was a result of the detonation of the ammunition stored in the building.
An air alert has been declared on almost the entire territory of Ukraine. On the same day, the attack were reported in the Odessa and Poltava regions.
According to the footage from the Odessa region, a missile strike hit the Odessa Portside Plant.
Earlier a missile strike hit the Malin railway station in the Zhytomyr region. Local residents reported that the Ukrainian air defense managed to intercept one missile, the two others reached their targets. As a result, the rail road tracks and the train with an unknown cargo were damaged.
