Russian Tu-22M3 bombers strike Mariupol

For the first time since the beginning of military aggression against Ukraine, Russian troops have attacked the Ukrainian port city of Mariupol using long-range Tu-22M3 bombers.

Ukrainian Defense Ministry spokesman Oleksandr Motuzianyk said this at a briefing on Friday, Ukrinform reports.

According to him, Russian invaders continue to concentrate their efforts on preparations for the offensive in eastern Ukraine, establishing control over the Donetsk and Luhansk regions and creating the so-called land corridor with the territory of the temporarily occupied Crimea.

On February 24, Russia launched a new phase of the eight-year war against Ukraine. The enemy is shelling and bombing peaceful Ukrainian cities, towns and villages. The whole people of Ukraine rose up to fight the invaders. The Ukrainian army and territorial defense forces are effectively resisting Russian troops and inflicting heavy losses on them.
