Russia uses record number of aerial bombs against Kherson region in one day — Ukrainian official
Over the past day, Russian troops have used a record number of aerial bombs during its attacks on the Kherson region, killing civilians
Natalia Humeniuk, head of the Joint Coordination Press Center of the Southern Defense Forces of Ukraine, reported the information on the United News telethon.
According to her, despite the fact that there was a sense of alarm in Ukraine on that particular night with air raid alerts being sounded, there was no aerial activity observed like what had been experienced in previous instances.
Humeniuk said that Russian tactical aircraft were operating at night and bombing Ukrainian territory, including with guided aerial bombs.
"Throughout the day, from 7:00 am to 7:00 am, a record number of 36 air bombs were documented. In the Kherson region, the enemy targeted each settlement with 2 to 4 bombs. For a village, this represents a significant destructive force, as several houses can be damaged simultaneously when a 500-kilogram equivalent of TNT detonates in the ground, leaving substantial craters," said the spokesperson.
She emphasized that, unfortunately, there is information about the victims, the data is being clarified.
Earlier, on Saturday night, October 21, Russian troops used a new tactic of mixed attacks during attacks on Ukrainian territory. For the first time, they fired cruise missiles and guided bombs simultaneously.
