Rain of Russian fire on Ukraine: “Putin is now also using North Korea’s ammunition”

Russia launched a large-scale missile attack targeting residential and industrial facilities across Ukraine in the early morning hours of Monday, January 8: Kiev Air Force detected dozens of Kinzhal supersonic ballistic missiles that will target strategic infrastructure. At least 4 people died and 34 people were injured. Targets include the industrial areas of Zaporizhia and Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second largest city.

Nearly two years after the start of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, both sides of the conflict have significantly increased air strikes against their respective areas following the decline of a front line without significant territorial gains. In fact, after the Ukrainian counteroffensive on the ground ends, the Russians’ unsuccessful efforts to advance in various areas of the conflict continue.

These include those around the city of Lyman, those in the Kharkiv region, and those in the Donetsk and Zaporizhzhia regions.

Rain of Russian fire on Ukraine

Russia stepped up missile launches over the Christmas and New Year holidays, saying missile and drone attacks targeted factories, weapons repair centers and other military facilities in Ukraine. However, it is stated that buildings were hit and the victims were mostly civilians.

According to Kiev, Russia has also started to use weapons from North Korea to cope with the increasing raids. The numbers are horrifying: a total of 125 ballistic missiles have been launched since the beginning of the year to keep the pressure on Ukraine. “Over the past week the enemy has launched about 125 missiles and more than 400 air strikes,” said General Staff spokesman Andri Kovalov. The largest Russian air strike so far this year took place on January 2, when Moscow’s air force fired nearly 70 cruise missiles and a dozen missiles at various parts of Ukraine.

Russia’s fault

There were certainly serious errors in the raids carried out by Russian bombers: A Russian warplane accidentally dropped a bomb on the city of Rubizhne in the Russian-occupied Luhansk region of Ukraine. This was stated by the head of the pro-Russian government in the region, Leonid Pasechnik. Pasechnik assured that the FAB-250 bomb with a high-yield warhead did not cause any injuries. The incident took place six days after Russia mistakenly dropped ammunition on the village of Petropavlovka in Russia’s Belgorod region, which has been the target of repeated Ukrainian attacks.
