Ukrainian News: Putin ‘increasingly desperate’ as Kremlin’s Soviet tactics ‘lose momentum’ | World | New

Ukraine has inflicted more damage on Vladimir Putin after President Volodymyr Zelensky’s heroic troops wiped out two Russian munitions depots as it continues to fight back during the brutal war.

The Ukrainian Army’s Strategic Communications Directorate confirmed that Ukraine hit two ammunition depots in Ilovaisk (Donetsk Oblast) and Brylivka belonging to Russia in the early hours of Friday morning.

A huge fire was reported in Ilovaisk – a major regional rail hub – around 2am local time, with explosions audible for some time after.

Footage shared on social media shows massive flames erupting and thick, dark plumes of smoke filling the Ukrainian night sky.

Twitter user “Chuck Pfarrer” (@ChuckPfarrer), whose profile describes him as a “former SEAL Team Six Squadron Leader”, retweeted a video of the Russian munitions depot fire.

He wrote alongside that: “NO WHERE TO HIDE – Ukrainian precision strike artillery targeted a RU ammunition depot in Ilovaisk, 40 km behind the front edge of the battle area in Donetsk Oblast .

“UKR supporters probably designated this target and HIMARS eliminated it. Note the secondary explosions.”

Ukrainian journalist Denis Kazansky said the resulting explosions were so powerful “that windows were smashed in nearby buildings”.
