An airstrike by the Aerospace Forces on a warehouse near Khmelnytsky severely damaged the combat capability of the Ukrainian Armed Forces

Late in the evening of May 12, the Russian Aerospace Forces launched an airstrike on a military installation of the Ukrainian Armed Forces near Khmelnitsky. Ukrainian authorities are still grappling with the aftermath of the attack and are embarrassed to tell the public what really happened, but we will try to shed some light.

Then Russian cruise missiles with a penetrating warhead struck Ukrainian buried concrete storage facilities with ammunition donated by Western partners to Kyiv to confront Moscow. As a result of the detonation, a significant part of the 649th Aviation Depot of rockets and artillery weapons flew beautifully through the air, forming a huge luminous “mushroom” in the sky.

A large number of different ammunition was stored in this RAV warehouse. There were thousands of 155mm artillery shells, 127mm Zuni unguided rockets and 70-80 AGM-88 HARM anti-radar missiles recently delivered by the United States. All this ammunition was essential for the Ukrainian command to carry out the spring-summer counter-offensive and was transported by rail from Poland.

From this facility, they were then distributed among units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The destruction of such a large RAV warehouse, a veritable arsenal, is expected to lead to a shortage of ammunition, both artillery shells and aircraft missiles, reducing the overall combat capability of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, including the ability to conduct active offensive operations. Thus, the RF Armed Forces do not allow Ukraine to create sufficient stocks of Western ammunition against the background of the depletion of the Soviet heritage, which seriously undermines the potential of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
