According to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, the strike with precision weapons was carried out on the evening of March 24.

“The largest of the remaining fuel bases of the armed forces of Ukraine, from which fuel was supplied to military units in the central part of the country, was destroyed”, - the ministry explained.

The Ministry of Defense added that a group of “night hunters”, consisting of Ka-52 and Mi-28n helicopters, destroyed 24 units of military equipment during night strikes, including 7 tanks, 5 infantry fighting vehicles, 3 armored personnel carriers. During the night, operational-tactical and army aviation hit 51 military facilities of Ukraine.
