Ministry of Defense Russia reported to have stopped six rail lines in Ukraine used to transport weapons supplies from the West on Wednesday (4/5).
Russia’s defense ministry said it had disabled the railway station by bombing power supplies using high-precision air strikes and sea-based weapons.
However, as reported by Reuters on Wednesday (4/5), the Russian Ministry of Defense did not mention in more detail the weapons supplied via the railway.
In a statement, the Russian Defense Ministry also said it had targeted 40 Ukrainian military facilities and weapons. Among them are four ammunition depots and artillery weapons.
Reuters has so far been unable to independently verify the Russian Defense Ministry’s statement. Kyiv is also said to have not reacted directly to this.
Ukraine is still under Russian attack after they launched their invasion on February 24. The days after that, explosions and fighting continued.
Recently, Russia is intensifying attacks in Eastern Ukraine. They are even said to be attacking their neighboring country in a big way before 9 May.
This was revealed by a number of US officials who said it was possible for Putin to announce the declaration on May 9.
The date coincides with Russian Victory Day which is celebrated every year to commemorate their defeat of Germany during World War II.
Since the beginning of the invasion, Putin has called Russia’s actions against Ukraine a ‘special military operation’. If Putin has declared it officially, then Moscow can exert full powers according to the law.
Under the law, Russia can deploy reservists and conscripts. Currently, Russia is reportedly in dire need of additional troops in Ukraine due to the eastern European country’s fierce resistance.
