Ukraine shoots down 5 Russian jets and helicopter
As Russian soldiers marched into Ukraine’s territory, the Ukrainian military claimed to have shot down five Russian jets and helicopters in the eastern region.
This follows the announcement by Russian President Vladimir Putin of a special military operation in the European country.
Ukraine’s military formations are also maintaining their positions, according to the command, as “the adversary suffers losses.”
On Thursday, February 24, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy declared martial law across the country as Russian soldiers crossed the border and attacked locations near Kyiv.
“Explosions were heard in a number of Ukrainian cities. We’ve declared martial law across the United States “According to Zelenskyy.
A wounded woman was observed after a Russian airstrike damaged an apartment complex outside of Kharkiv’s northeastern city, according to sources.
Ukraine’s border guard agency also claimed that Russia launched an attack on the country from Belarus.
Reuters reported earlier this week that Russia has shifted ten Sukhoi Su-24 warplanes based in Crimea to reserve air sites elsewhere as part of training operations, citing the Interfax news agency.
