Russian forces have repelled more nighttime attacks by Ukrainian drones in the western Tula and Belgorod regions, Russia said on Tuesday (August 29). The Ministry of Defense did not provide information about possible injuries and damage. Follow our lives.
Repetitive attacks. Drone attacks on Russian territory and the Crimean peninsula, annexed in 2014, have become almost daily in recent weeks, in particular against the Russian capital. President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky at the end of July was glad that “War comes to the territory of Russia”.
The Ukrainian counteroffensive is moving forward with difficulty. The Ukrainian army announced on Monday the liberation of the village of Robotayne after several weeks of fighting on the Southern Front. Since the start of the counter-offensive in June, Ukrainian forces have advanced very slowly as they have encountered extremely dense fortified defense lines.
The Minister of Defense of Ukraine denies the presence of corruption. According to an investigation by a number of Ukrainian media outlets, in the fall of 2022, the Ministry of Defense Oleksiy Reznikov signed a contract with a Turkish company for the supply of winter uniforms, the price of which tripled after the signing. The latter denied the false accusations on Monday.
