Russia Once Again Proved That It Is a Bad Strategist

On August 24, Independence Day of Ukraine, the Russian Federation launched a massive rocket attack on the country and complemented it with provocations from Belarus

Putin and his military command would be bad directors. They organized group strikes throughout the neighbouring country on Independence Day. Ukrainian forces foresaw this, so even state organizations did not work that day in some areas. According to the results of 1 day, we can say that Russia spent millions on "shooting a stupid film", once again proving Putin's desire to destroy everything.

This is evidenced by the results of air warnings and missile strikes on Independence Day in Ukraine.

The air alert in Ukraine was declared 189 times in just 24 hours. Most of the alarms were in the Poltava and Kirovograd regions — 12 times. The alarm sounded 11 times in the Zaporizhzhia and Dnipropetrovsk regions. 10 times — in the Kharkiv and Cherkasy regions. 

The advisor of the air force command of the Ukrainian armed forces said that Russia used Belarusian airfields. The aggressor raised the Tu-22 M3 aircraft 200 times. Not all of them were loaded with X-22 missiles. Some attack aircraft merely simulated missile launches.

However, the aggressor country also attacked the peaceful cities of Ukraine. On 24 August, the following suffered:

  • Kharkiv region — educational institution, residential houses, field;
  • Dnipro region — residential buildings, passenger train;
  • Zaporizhia region — civil infrastructure;
  • Poltava region — military facility;
  • Khmelnytsky region — civil infrastructure;
  • Sumy region — civilian infrastructure.

For the Dnipropetrovsk region, Independence Day was the most tragic. The occupiers killed more than 20 people, including children 6 and 11 years old.

On August 25, the number of alarms in Ukraine decreased. However, missile strikes were recorded in the Kyiv region.
