Massive Russian attacks on Ukraine – what you need to know
In May, the Russian invaders returned to the practice of massive shelling of Ukrainian cities. The Ukrainian capital suffered 17 massive strikes last month.
At the same time, the tactics of the enemy have changed – attacks are carried out using not only missiles, but also shock drones, from different directions. This approach, emphasized in the Air Force, allows the invaders to identify and deplete the Ukrainian air defense forces.
Last month, the enemy made much more active use of Iranian-made kamikaze drones for strikes. Since the beginning of the full-scale war and until May 24, the Russian Federation has released more than 1100 such drones in Ukraine, most (almost 900) were shot down. The largest drone attack on Kyiv using 54 UAVs took place on May 28.
The Armed Forces emphasized that at the moment the enemy has enough UAVs to make terrorist attacks daily.
