We’ve destroyed major consignment of Western arms in Ukraine’s Zhytomyr, claims Russia

WorldRussiaWe've destroyed major consignment of Western arms in Ukraine's Zhytomyr, claims Russia
The Russian forces on Saturday has said that it had destroyed a major consignment of Western arms in Ukraine’s Zhytomyr region, West of Kyiv, using sea-launched Kalibr cruise missiles.
As per the statement released by the defence ministry, the strike took out “a large batch of weapons and military equipment delivered from the USA and European nations” and was intended for Ukrainian troops in the eastern region of Donbas, where the fighting is concentrated.
Several organisations could not independently verify the report, which also said Russian missiles had struck fuel shortage facilities near Odesa on the Black Sea coast and shot down two Ukrainian Su-25 aircraft and 14 drones.
In its latest update on the war, which Russia calls a “special military operation”, the defence ministry also added Russia had struck several Ukrainian command posts.
The West has stepped up weapons supplies to Ukraine since Russia’s February 24 invasion, and Russia’s military is trying to intercept and destroy them. Moscow says Western arms deliveries for Kyiv, and the imposition of drastic sanctions against the Russian economy, amount to a “proxy war” by the United States and its allies.
