The Russian Defense Ministry is now carrying out a massive strike against military facilities and concentrations of AFU troops.
This missile strike is atypical. The scale is greater than anything we have seen in recent months.
Missiles, bombs, and drones are targeting dozens of AFU positions and facilities in various directions.
The Russian Defense Ministry massively used Geran-2 drones, X-22/32 missiles, and other munitions. At least seven Tu-22M3 strategic missile carriers carried out strikes.
X-101 and Kalibr cruise missiles are launched. Ships of the Russian Black Sea Fleet carried out a group launch of Kalibr cruise missiles.
It is already known about numerous explosions in the Odessa region. It is reported that at least 7 hits on AFU facilities were recorded. There are also reports that a missile strike damaged the bridge in Zatoka, through which the AFU was bringing reserves, fuel and equipment from Romania to Kherson and Mykolaiv.

Massive drone, missile strikes reported in Ukraine
According to local authorities and media, blasts were heard overnight in Kiev as well as the Odessa, Chernigov and Dnepropetrovsk Regions
Air raid sirens were blaring across Ukraine in the early hours of Monday as Ukrainian officials and media reported a series of Russian drone and missile attacks.
The Ukrainian military claimed to have shot down 35 kamikaze drones over Kiev. Authorities in the capital said falling debris injured five people and damaged an apartment block along with approximately 20 vehicles. In addition, a diesel tank was punctured, although this did not lead to a fire, officials said.
Ukrainian media reported, citing the military, that at around midnight local time, Russian Air Force bombers launched eight missiles, at least one of which struck a warehouse in Odessa Region.
The head of the local military command, Yuri Kruk, said Monday morning’s bombardment caused a massive fire, and that one person is unaccounted for.
Meanwhile, commenting on the overnight strikes, Vladimir Rogov, a senior Russian official in Zaporozhye Region, claimed on his Telegram channel that a missile strike had destroyed an ammunition depot used by the Ukrainian military.
Ukrainian media have also reported explosions in the Chernigov and Dnepropetrovsk Regions, as well as the city of Zaporozhye.
