Quote: "The presence of aircraft near Ukraine's borders is growing, but Ruscist planes are not actually entering the airspace controlled by our Air Defence.

Tu-22M3 long-range bombers fired missiles from Russian territory at Ukrainian Armed Forces units on the Donetsk and Luhansk fronts at about 8 pm. The aggressors also launched missiles at Ukraine from the south.

Two cruise missiles were intercepted and destroyed by Ukrainian Air Force fighters."

Details: Ukraine's strike aircraft once again attacked the positions of the occupying forces. This time a company task force was defeated: the aggressors’ personnel were killed and about ten light armoured vehicles were destroyed.

In addition, the Ground Forces’ air defence and the Air Force’s anti-aircraft missile forces shot down 5 Orlan-10-type UAVs.

Thus, the aggressors’ losses over the past 24 hours amounted to:

- 5 UAVs (Orlan-10s);

- 2 cruise missiles;

- 10 light armoured vehicles.
