Russia said on Sunday it shot down a Ukrainian SU-25 combat plane and destroyed a Ukrainian army arsenal over the past day.
Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said “in the past 24 hours, air-launched precision missiles struck three command posts, 25 areas of amassed Ukrainian manpower, and military equipment, and two artillery batteries at firing positions,” according to state-run news agency TASS.
For a detailed account of what Russia calls a “special military operation,” the spokesman said 183 Ukrainian aircraft, 128 helicopters, 1,049 unmanned aerial vehicles, 325 surface-to-air missile systems, 3,309 tanks, and other combat armored vehicles, 447 multiple launch rocket systems, 1,722 field artillery guns, and mortars, and 3,270 special military motor vehicles have been destroyed so far.
At least 4,031 civilians have been killed and 4,735 injured in Ukraine since Russia’s war on its neighbor started on Feb. 24, according to UN estimates. The true toll is believed to be much higher.
Over 6.7 million people have fled to other countries, while more than 7.7 million have been internally displaced, according to the UN refugee agency.
