Russian Massive Terror May 18

From 9 p. m on May 17 to 5:30 am on May 18, the Russian army fired 30 missiles and 4 drones at the cities of Ukraine

A nationwide alert was issued during the massive attack. The sounds of explosions were heard in the east, north, south, central, and even western Ukraine. Russia used 6 Caliber cruise missiles, 2 Iskander and 22 Soviet X-22 and X-555. The first missiles were fired from ships in the Black sea. Later, the Russian invaders raised 10 Tu-95MS and Tu-160 aircraft and fired a second volley of rockets. The attack was also accompanied by drone attacks: 2 Iranian Shahed-136/131 and 2 vehicles for reconnaissance.

The commander-in-chief of the armed forces of Ukraine noted that the anti-aircraft defence performed perfectly with new massive strikes. Zaluzhnyi said that Ukraine shot down all 4 drones and 29 missiles. All 6 Russian Calibers were shot down. Only one heavy missile was able to reach the target. X-22 damaged the power facility of the infrastructure in the Khmelnytsky region. In the morning, 3 settlements of the region, 1.700 people, were without light. Electricians eliminate the effects of a missile strike.

The Ukrainian air force also reports more significant losses for Ukraine. In the Odesa region, people were killed by missile debris. Therefore, the military continues to remind people of the need to be in safe places during the air alert.

The Russian Federation continues to carry out massive terrorist attacks against the civilian population of Ukraine. While the Russian army loses on the front line, the aggressor’s missiles strike only at night, probably to destabilize the Ukrainian population. Also, attacks are still being carried out on critical infrastructure that provides more benefits to civilians than to the military.
