Moscow said a Ukrainian air strike hit army barracks in the Russian-occupied town of Makiivka in eastern Ukraine, killing at least 63, as it continued to target Kyiv with drones. Four high-explosive warheads struck the Makiivka temporary deployment base, while two were shot down by Russian air defences, Russia’s defence ministry said in a statement on Monday. The school building that was being used as barracks stood near an ammunition dump and weapons cache. Russian military bloggers said hundreds of newly mobilised Russian troops had died or were missing. While not taking credit for the strike, the Ukrainian military suggested in a Telegram post that the Makiivka attack had killed 400 Russian soldiers and injured 300. The bloggers described the event as a disaster and called for commanders who made the decision to place such a large number of troops in one unprotected building to be punished.
