Показать описание
Ukrainian forces used American-supplied Atacms missiles for the first time on Tuesday//yesterday in attacks against two air bases in Russian-occupied territory.

The strikes on targets in Berdyansk, in the south, and Luhansk, in the east, were some of the most destructive to have been carried out on Russian air assets since the beginning of the war.

Nine helicopters, ammunition depots, a surface-to-air missile launcher and runways were destroyed or damaged, Ukraine’s Special Operations Forces said.

Dozens of Russian military personnel were also killed and wounded in the attack codenamed Operation Dragonfly, the military branch added.

Volodymyr Zelensky confirmed on Tuesday that Kyiv had used the US-provided long-range Army Tactical Missile System (ATACMS) missiles in the strikes.
