Russia announces “field gains” for separatists in Ukraine

The spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry, General Igor Konashenkov, said that the rebels advanced 3 kilometers in the Donetsk region, and one and a half kilometers in the Lugansk region..

He added that Russia possesses “high-precision weapons”, saying that his country “targets military targets, and that civilians have nothing to fear,” according to Agence France-Presse.

“The Russian-backed rebel forces are now fighting and doing damage to the enemy,” Konashenkov said“.

For his part, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said that the Russian military operation is much greater than what Moscow announced, denying reports that the Ukrainian defense forces have collapsed due to the missile strikes.

In a tweet on Twitter, Kuleba wrote: “No. This is not only an invasion of Russia in eastern Ukraine, but a large-scale attack from multiple directions.”

The course of events shows that the scope of the Russian military operation exceeds the areas that Moscow announced targeting, as Russia rained missiles on large areas inside Ukraine, including the capital, Kiev..

Ukraine spoke of landing by sea in the cities of Odessa and Mariupol in the south, regions far from the Donbass, which consists of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions, according to “Reuters”“.

The Ukrainian border guards said in a statement that his country is under artillery attack along its northern borders with Russia and Belarus.
