On Wednesday, the Russian Defense Ministry released a video showing the destroyed artillery of the Ukrainian Armed Forces during the “special operation” in the neighboring country. In the video accessible by Republic Media Network, we can see that the Ukrainian artillery is destroyed and lying on the ground. The two neighboring countries released numerous videos claiming that they were clashing head-on.
With the latest video, Russian forces claim they are invading major cities of the former Soviet nation and destroying their anti-tank weapons and other equipment. Earlier in the day, the Russian Ministry of Defense released a video showing the destruction of armored vehicles of the Ukrainian armed forces by the helicopters of the Russian army aviation as part of a special military operation to defend the Donbass.
The video shows that the crew of the KA-52 helicopter discovered the camouflage equipment, captured it and launched missiles. Simultaneously, in another video of a Russian AFV drone, it can be seen that it was hit by a Ukrainian anti-tank missile.
Russia: Chernobyl and Zaporizhzhia under control to “prevent” nuclear provocations
In addition, Russia has established control of the Chernobyl and Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plants in order to “prevent” any attempt at nuclear provocation. Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova on Wednesday stressed the possible “risk” of nuclear provocations during the Russian-Ukrainian war.
The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine claimed that more than 12,000 Russian soldiers had been killed so far. He also mentioned that Russia also lost 317 tanks, 49 planes, 81 helicopters, 1070 armored fighting vehicles, 56 rocket launchers and 28 air defense systems. The Russian Defense Ministry has not yet responded to the complaint.
Additionally, the Ukrainian government has banned the export of wheat, oats and other staples that are crucial to the world’s food supply as authorities try to ensure they can feed people for war with their neighboring country. This is the latest sign that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is threatening the food supply and livelihoods of people in Europe, Africa and Asia who depend on farmland in the region of the Black Sea, known as the breadbasket of the world. Russia and Ukraine together supply almost a third of the world’s wheat and barley exports, the prices of which have soared since the invasion.
