Russian troops continue to fire missiles at civilians of Ukraine.
On September 30, Russian troops struck a motorcade southeast of the city Zaporizhzhia, as a result of which 25 civilians died. The ammunition was most likely a long-range Russian anti-aircraft missile used to strike a ground target.
This is stated in the daily review of the Ministry of Defense of Great Britain in Twitter.
According to British intelligence, Russia’s stockpile of such missiles is likely limited and a valuable resource designed to destroy advanced aircraft and incoming missiles, not for use against ground targets. Its use for striking ground targets was almost certainly due to a general shortage of ammunition, especially long-range precision missiles.
According to the Ministry of Defense of Britain, on the same day, Putin signed an order on the annexation of Zaporozhye and other parts of temporarily occupied Ukraine.
“Russia is wasting strategically valuable military resources in an attempt to gain tactical advantage and in the process is killing civilians, whom it now calls its citizens,” the British Ministry of Defense emphasized.
We will remind On September 30, Putin signed documents on the “accession” of Ukrainian territories occupied by Russians to the Russian Federation. Recently, pseudo-referendums were held there, which, as expected, drew the overwhelming majority of votes in favor of joining Russia.
