DEADLY DELIVERY: Russian Missile Squad Targets Ukraine

This is the moment Russian rocket troops send a flurry of Oniks missiles into the sky from a coastal combat position.

The Russian military said the P-800 Oniks cruise missiles were launched to attack Ukrainian facilities as the invasion enters its 69th day.

The Russian Ministry of Defence (MoD) said on 3rd May: “Attack on infrastructure facilities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine with Onyx missiles.”

In the footage, several mobile rocket launchers are seen positioned on the coast as three missiles are fired into the sky before disappearing across the sea.

Kremlin officials do not, however, say what the targets were or if the attack was successful.

Russia invaded Ukraine on 24th February in what the Kremlin called a “special military operation”. Today marks the 69th day of the campaign.

From 24th February to 3rd May, the total combat losses of Russian troops stand at around 24,200 personnel, according to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

The Ukrainian military also claims that Russia has lost 1,062 battle tanks, 2,567 combat armoured vehicles, 475 artillery systems, 162 MLR systems, 80 anti-aircraft systems, 194 warplanes, 155 helicopters, 1,843 vehicles, 10 vessels, 76 fuel tank trucks, 291 operational-tactical level UAVs, 38 units of special equipment, 84 cruise missiles, and four mobile SRBM systems.

Meanwhile, a host of international organisations have banned Russia from taking part in sporting and cultural events, such as this year’s FIFA World Cup in Qatar, in response to the country’s invasion.
