Battles rage on: Ukraine destroys 21 Russian tanks, 48 artillery systems and eliminates 1,500 occupiers over 24 hours

The General Staff of the Ukrainian Army has reported that in the past 24 hours, 115 combat engagements between Ukrainian troops and Russian occupiers took place on the front lines.

Overall, the enemy launched several missiles on the Ukrainian territory and 61 airstrikes with 93 guided bombs, used 1,050 kamikaze drones, and over a thousand times shelled Ukrainian positions and settlements.

During the past day, the Ukrainian Air Forces and artillery units targeted 24 areas of Russian personnel concentration and hit two Russian artillery systems. As a result, the total losses for the invaders over the past day amounted to about 1,500 personnel.

Russian troops also lost 21 tanks, 40 armored combat vehicles, 48 artillery systems, one multiple rocket launcher system, 15 tactical-level unmanned aerial vehicles, 46 vehicles, and four special equipment units.

Overnight on 28 May 2024, Moscow forces attacked Ukrainian territory with Shahed-type strike aerial vehicles from the Primorsko-Akhtarsk area in Russia. The Ukrainian Air Force units successfully shot down the enemy drones in the Zaporizhzhia, Dnipropetrovsk, and Cherkasy regions.
