22.05.2023, Dnepropetrovsk.

The facilities in Dnepropetrovsk were hit with a powerful combined strike, AiF-Moscow informed on May 22.

“There was a series of strong explosions (at least 16) in the city,” the statement reads.

According to the information provided, a fire broke out in Dnepropetrovsk after the explosions.

On February 21, 2022, at an extraordinary meeting of the Russian Security Council in Moscow, chaired by Russian President Vladimir Putin, it was decided to recognize the independence of the Lugansk and Donetsk People’s Republics (LPR and DPR).

After the Security Council meeting, the Russian leader made a televised address to Russian citizens in which he said that he considered it necessary to recognize the independence of the DPR and LPR. He noted that the world prefers not to notice the horror and genocide in Donbass, where not a day goes by without shelling and killing of civilians.

On February 24, Russian leader Vladimir Putin announced the launch of a special operation in Ukraine at the request of the leaders of the republics of Donbass. He stressed that Moscow does not intend to occupy Ukraine; its goal is the demilitarization and denazification of the country. According to a statement by the Russian Defense Ministry, strikes by the Armed Forces are carried out only against Ukraine’s military infrastructure and troops.

On October 10, the Russian Armed Forces began strikes against Ukrainian infrastructure two days after the terrorist attack on the Crimean bridge, which, according to the Russian government, Ukrainian special services were involved in. According to President Vladimir Putin, with the explosion on the bridge, the Ukrainian authorities equated themselves to the most odious terrorist groups, and “it is simply impossible to allow crimes of this kind to go unpunished.”

The Russian Armed Forces have been striking military, energy, and communications facilities across Ukraine.
