On May 29, the Tass news agency quoted the Russian Defense Ministry as confirming that the weapons depot attacked were located in the Dnepropetrovsk region.

“The long-range precision missiles of the Russian Aerospace Forces wiped out a large arsenal of Ukrainian military weapons in the warehouse of an enterprise in Kryvyi Rih in the Dnepropetrovsk region,” ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said. Russian Defense said.

In addition, Moscow said its anti-aircraft defense system also shot down a Ukrainian SU-25 fighter jet in the Dnipro region.

“In the past 24 hours, air-launched precision missiles have also hit three command posts, 25 areas of concentration of Ukrainian military personnel and equipment, as well as two artillery batteries that are in firing position,” he said. Konashenkov added.

The statement was made by Russia shortly after Ukraine’s Defense Ministry confirmed that it had begun receiving Harpoon anti-ship missiles from Denmark and US self-propelled guns capable of hitting targets at long distances.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky hopes to receive more good news from the West this week after receiving many heavy weapons this weekend.

“Every day, we are getting closer to the point when our military will surpass Russia in terms of technology and firepower. Of course, this depends a lot on our partners, on the readiness of our partners. they aim to provide Ukraine with everything it needs to defend its freedom. And I expect good news about this next week,” the Ukrainian president told the Ukrinform news agency on May 29.

Meanwhile, Zelensky’s adviser Mykhailo Podolyak reiterated calls for the West to supply Kiev with long-range weapons.

On the ground, the situation is tense in the Donbass region in eastern Ukraine as Kiev rejects Russia’s claim that it has complete control over the city of Lyman and besieges Sievierodonetsk.

The Ukrainian side said that its forces are repelling Russian forces in the suburbs. “The war continues,” stressed the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. In addition, Deputy Defense Minister of Ukraine Hanna Malyar said fighting in Lyman continues.
