Russia Claims Ukraine Attacking With US-Supplied ATACMS

Tuesday, 21 May 2024 08:05 AM EDT

The Russian-installed head of Ukraine's occupied Luhansk region said on Tuesday that Ukraine had attacked it the previous day with ATACMS missiles supplied by the United States, wounding eight people.

Reuters could not independently verify the assertion by Leonid Pasechnik, the Russian-appointed head of the region. He said the attack took place in the city of Sverdlovsk.

Ukrainian forces shot down 28 out of 29 drones used by Russian forces in an overnight attack on seven regions, Ukraine's air force said in a statement Tuesday.

The drone attack damaged four private residences, 25 trucks and buses in Kharkiv, injuring five people, according to the region's governor Oleh Syniehubov and Ukrainian Internal Affairs Ministry's statements on the Telegram messaging app.

A missile attack later in the morning targeted transport infrastructure and injured two more people in the city, the governor added.

Two drones shot down in Dnipropetrovsk region damaged outbuildings, with no casualties reported by the region's governor.

Three Shahed-type drones were shot down over the Kherson region, with 14 more shot down over the Odesa region, according to the Ukrainian military.

The rest of the drones targeted the Mykolaiv, Cherkasy and Kirovohrad regions.

Reuters could not independently verify the information on damages.

Russia has stepped up drone and missile attacks around Ukraine this spring, dealing significant damage to its energy infrastructure.
