With the ongoing ruthless war in Eastern Europe showing no signs of abating, the Ukrainian military recently claimed to have destroyed a Russian military supply point as well as two ammunition depots in southern Ukraine. . Separately, Ukraine’s Operational Command (South) said it killed nearly 35 Russian soldiers on Saturday, August 27.
According to the Operational Command’s Facebook post, nine Russian armored and military vehicles were also destroyed. The post even revealed that an Msta-B howitzer and a NONA self-propelled mortar system were also taken out by Ukrainian troops.
On top of that, earlier this week the Ukrainian military said it had eliminated the Russian foothold in Kherson Oblast. According to the operational command, they killed about 20 Russian soldiers and damaged a number of items of military equipment.
A Facebook post from the operational command indicates that the Ukrainian attacks destroyed three armored vehicles, two S-300 missile systems, a Giatsint-S self-propelled howitzer, a Msta-S self-propelled howitzer, a Nebo-M radar system, as well as a 120mm mortar.

On the other hand, on Sunday August 28, the Governor of Sumy Oblast said that 220 rockets and mortars had been fired at the area by the invading Russian forces. Governor Dmytro Zhyvytsky reported that at least two people were injured as a result of the attacks. In Bilopillia, which is near the Russian border, he added that the shelling had damaged a school, a kindergarten and a post office, according to the Kyiv Independent.
Also, explosions were reported in Kherson, which is under Russian control. According to local media, explosions were heard near the neighborhood prison and the city’s industrial zone. The media also claimed that the Russians had built a base near the prison.
According to Ukrainian media, the Russian army also damaged the Zaporizhzhia boarding school on Sunday. Governor Oleksandr Starukh noted that five missiles severely damaged the school and completely destroyed several parts of the structure. “Fortunately, the school year had not started yet, and there were no students,” he said.
In the Kharkiv oblast, the Russian bombardment of August 27 caused one death and one injury. The adversary “continues to terrorize civilians in Kharkiv oblast”, according to Oleh Syniehubov, the governor of Kharkiv oblast. Additionally, Russia launched two missiles at Nikopol on the same day. Mykola Lukashuk, the head of the Dnipropetrovsk Oblast Council, said two multi-storey residential buildings and a government building were damaged in the attack. No casualties were reported.
Meanwhile, a freshly formed Third Russian Army Corps was sent to the Ukrainian border. The Conflict Intelligence Team said Moscow had moved its military equipment to Russia’s Rostov region, which is close to seized parts of Ukraine’s Donetsk Oblast. In particular, the Buk anti-aircraft complex, the T-80BV and T-90M tanks are among the military equipment that Russia allegedly delivered, according to a Babel.ua report. They also traveled from Mulin in the Nizhny Novgorod region of Russia to Neklinovka in the Rostov region.
