In the Ukrainian onslaught on Makiivka, 63 troops, according to Russia
400 Russian soldiers were killed during the New Year's Eve attack in the seized city of Makiivka, according to Ukraine.
According to Russia, 63 of its soldiers were killed when Ukrainian forces attacked a temporary barracks on New Year's Eve in the partially-occupied Donetsk region.
The HIMARS guided rocket system supplied by the United States was used by the Ukrainian military to fire six rockets at the "provisional base" in the eastern city of Makiivka, according to a statement from the ministry on Monday.
Despite the fact that Russian air defenses knocked down two of the missiles, four still managed to hit the structure.
The ministry made its statement after the Strategic Communications Department of the Ukrainian Armed Forces reported late on Sunday that the attack claimed the lives of 400 Russian troops and injured another 300.
Online video appeared to show Makiivka, which is under Russian control, with a structure that was allegedly a vocational college reduced to smoldering ruins.
If Ukraine’s tally were confirmed, the toll would represent one of the single deadliest attacks on Russian forces since Moscow launched its invasion in late February.
Authorities in Donetsk that are supported by Moscow acknowledged the attack's casualties as well.
Senior Russian-backed official in the area, Daniil Bezsonov, claimed that HIMARS missiles struck the vocational college just after midnight on Saturday.
Bezsonov wrote on the Telegram chat service late on Sunday, "There were dead and wounded." "The precise figure is still a mystery. The structure itself had significant damage.
The number of dead and wounded "goes into many hundreds," according to Igor Girkin, a former Federal Security Service official who assisted Russia in annexing the Crimean peninsula in the Black Sea in 2014 and then organized pro-Russian separatist troops in eastern Ukraine.
Girkin, who has harshly criticized Russia for its military missteps in Ukraine, claimed that the building where the recruits were housed also had ammunition.
He stated on Telegram that this was not the first such [very dense] deployment of soldiers and equipment in the HIMARS missile demolition zone.
