Russian forces attack Dnipro in central Ukraine, renew assault in the east
Kyiv, May 27 (EFE).- Russian forces Friday continued heaving bombing of the Dnipro city, causing severe damage to the infrastructure in the central Ukrainian region while renewing their offensive in Donetsk in the east of the war-torn country.
Valentyn Reznichenko, head of the Dnipropetrovsk Regional Military Administration, wrote on the Telegram channel that it was “an unquiet night and an unquiet morning” in the region,
“We have had several strikes. Serious destruction,” said Reznichenko.
The military head said Dnipro rescuers cleared the rubble of the damaged infrastructure and looked for missing people on Friday.
“In the morning, there were reports of explosions in Dnipro. We are waiting for official information from the military administration.”
Novomoskovsk Mayor Serhii Rieznik confirmed that they heard explosions in the Dnipro city on the banks of the Dnieper River, which runs from the north to the south of the country.
Meanwhile, the Russian army has renewed its assault on the town of Sloviansk in the Donetsk region.
The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine said Russian invaders continued shelling the positions of the Ukrainian forces in Sloviansk.
“They are trying to make some gains in the Bakhmut direction, disrupt Ukrainian supply chains, and cut off Ukrainian units from the main forces,” the Ukrainian military said.
Russian forces in the Kharkiv region trained personnel to replenish motorized infantry, tank, and artillery units.
The Ukrainian army said that the Russians continued to maintain control over the Kherson region by increasing the number of attacks against Ukrainian units, carrying out aerial reconnaissances, fortifying positions, and strengthening forces through the transfer of reserve units.
And in the Black and Azov seas, Russian warships continue to block civilian shipping, the military said. EFE
