The Ukrainian Air Forces claims to have hit a Russian ammunition dump in the occupied Kherson region early Sunday.
Air forces spokesman Yurii Ihnat said Ukraine had hit the ammunition depot in Rykov village in the Henichesk area of Kherson.
“The less ammunition is there, the more of it on fire, the more enemy ammo depots are detonating – the less of it will strike our defenders,” Ihnat said on live television.
In a Telegram post Sunday, Serhiy Bratchuk, spokesperson for the Odesa military administration, said Ukrainian forces had taken out a “significant” ammunition depot in Henichesk.
A separate statement from the Armed Forces of Ukraine Sunday claimed to have hit several targets over the past 24 hours.
“Over the past day, missile and artillery units struck three command posts, two areas of manpower concentration, five ammunition depots, and three artillery units at firing positions,” the Ukrainian Armed Forces stated Sunday.
