Russia Ukraine Crisis: Ukraine claims major attack on Russian base, 200 soldiers killed.
Officials of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) may soon visit the temporarily closed Zaporizhia Nuclear Power Plant. There was more shelling in this area last night. Russian officials in Zaporizhia have blamed Ukraine for the fire.
Serhiy Gaidai, the governor of Ukraine's Luhansk region, claimed in a Telegram post that our troops had attacked a hotel base in the Russian-occupied city of Kadivka. They have killed 200 Russian air paratroopers by destroying a base in Ukraine's eastern region (where Russia is occupied). Haidai's claim comes at a time when Russia's progress in Ukraine's eastern regions has reportedly stalled.
The Ukrainian military has been battling Russian-backed separatists in Luhansk and the nearby Donesk-administered district since 2014. The conflict began with Russia's annexation of Crimea. Luhansk Governor Serhi Haidai also showed pictures of buildings in his post showing several devastated buildings. Ukrainian troops fired a BM-21 multiple rocket launcher into the Donbas region of eastern Ukraine on July 19, he said. Even then Russia suffered a lot.
On Friday, Ukrainian forces killed 200 airmen in an attack on a Russian base, he said. Let us tell you that after the Russian army took control of several areas of eastern Ukraine in July, the Ukrainian army is trying to take them back under its control.
Russia says Ukrainian shelling continues
The Russian headquarters (Kramlin) reiterated allegations against Ukraine that it had targeted several civilians in the region. On Thursday, Russian Ambassador to the UN Vasily Nebenzia said Ukraine's criminal shelling was continuing in Donbass that killed nearly 100 civilians last month. Mikhail Mijantsieve, head of Russia's National Defense Management Center, said more than 24,000 people had been evacuated from Luhansk-Donesk.
