Russian Air Strikes Destroy 74 Ukrainian Military Infrastructure Targets, Ministry of Defence Says

Sputnik – 24.02.2022

Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the start of a special operation by the Russian armed forces in Donbass with the goal of protecting the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics (DPR and LPR). He explained that the operation was needed to stop atrocities committed by Ukrainian forces in Donbass.

Air strikes by the Russian military destroyed 74 military infrastructure targets of the Ukrainian armed forces, the Russian Defence Ministry has stated. Among them are 11 airfields, three command centres, a Ukrainian Navy post, 18 S-300 radars (NATO reporting name SA-10 Grumble), and Buk (NATO reporting name Gadfly) air defence systems of the Ukrainian military, the Russian Defence Ministry elaborated.

In addition, Russian forces shot down a Ukrainian attack helicopter and four Turkish-made Bayraktar strike drones in the Donbass region, the Defence Ministry reported.

  1. Israeli command would respect the strategic importance of this Russian move, as that is exactly what Israel has done–overtly and covertly.

  2. Smart move by Putin. Attack targets in Donbass(but not Ukraine, yet). He’s put his cards on the table, and it is now Ukraine’s(and NATO’s) move.
    If they want to “Up the ante”, he will then respond. I might point out that it was the Russian Airforce that blew the “American backed Rebels” to kingdom come in Syria(invited by the Syrian government, Mr Assad.

    When the Russians fight, they fight to win…….Just look at what happened to Napoleon’s Army, and Hitler’s as well, butchered En Masse……..and what was left was “easy meat” for The Duke of Wellington, and The Allies, on D Day.
