Russia has already used over 2,500 missiles against Ukraine - Zelensky

Russian troops have fired 2,503 missiles against Ukraine since the beginning of the Russian all-out invasion.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said this in a nightly video address, according to Ukrinform.

"As of this morning [on June 4], the total number of various Russian missiles used against Ukraine is already 2,503," he said.

Zelensky noted that Russian troops again fired at the border areas of the Sumy region, Mykolaiv, cities and communities of the Zaporizhzhia and Kharkiv regions. The situation in Sievierodonetsk, where street fighting continues, remains extremely difficult. It is also difficult in Lysychansk, Marinka, Kurakhove, other cities and communities of Donbas, which are under constant air strikes, artillery and missile fire.

However, Ukrainian heroes hold their positions and do everything to inflict maximum losses on the enemy, Zelensky added.

On February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the beginning of the invasion of Ukraine. Russian troops are shelling and destroying critical infrastructure and residential areas of Ukrainian cities, towns and villages using artillery, multiple rocket launchers, ballistic missiles, and air bombs.

Martial law was imposed in Ukraine and general mobilization was announced. The European Union, the United States and other countries have imposed strong sanctions against the aggressor country.
