Moscow: Russia’s defence ministry on Wednesday has said its forces had destroyed a large quantity of Western-supplied weapons in southeastern Ukraine with long-range missiles.
The ministry has added in a briefing, “On the territory of the Zaporizhzhia aluminium plant, high-precision long-range sea-based Kalibr missiles destroyed hangars with a large batch of foreign weapons and ammunition supplied by the United States and European nations for Ukrainian troops.”
It did not mention what kind of weapons were destroyed.
On Tuesday, at the invitation of the United States, 40 nations held a security summit in Germany to discuss arm supplies to Ukraine, with Washington pledging to move “heaven and earth” to help the Kyiv army defeat Russia.
Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky has been pleading for heavier firepower to push back the Russian advance in the Donbas, but allies are wary of being drawn into a conflict that could spiral into an outright military confrontation between Moscow and NATO.
