Russia said Monday that its armed forces had hit Ukrainian airfields and “destroyed” all its targets after Kyiv said a military facility had been struck in western Ukraine.

The Russian defence ministry said its forces carried out strikes “with long-range precision-guided air-launched weapons against enemy targets on airfields,” adding that “all the assigned targets have been destroyed”. Kyiv said Russian overnight strikes hit a military facility in Khmelnytsky in western Ukraine, damaging five aircraft.
