Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has touted the successes of Western-donated "modern artillery" after his country’s forces struck another Russian ammunition depot on Tuesday.
"The occupiers have already felt very well what modern artillery is, and they will not have a safe rear anywhere on our land, which they occupied," Zelensky said in his nightly address.
"They felt that the operations of our scouts to protect their Motherland are orders of magnitude stronger than any of their 'special operations.'
"Russian soldiers — and we know this from interceptions of their conversations — are frankly afraid of our Armed Forces."
Zelensky's remarks come after explosions rocked the town of Nova Kakhovka in the Kherson region of Ukraine on Monday night. Video posted on social media showed loud explosions and a huge ball of fire lighting up the night sky.
Serhiy Khlan, a Ukrainian official who is a member of Kherson regional council, said on Facebook, "In Nova Kakhovka minus one Russian ammo depot. They brought, brought, stockpiled, stockpiled and now have fireworks at night."
Ukraine has been using US-donated HIMARS Multiple Launch Rocket Systems and other Western-made weaponry to target Russian ammunition depots, deep inside Moscow-controlled territory, over the past few weeks.
