New Delhi: The Russian defence ministry announced on Saturday that they have destroyed a huge number of weapons sent by Western countries in northwestern Ukraine with long-range missiles.


 "High-precision long-range sea-based Kalibr missiles destroyed a large batch of weapons and military equipment near the Malin railway station in Zhytomyr region delivered from the United States and European countries,"  the ministry said in a briefing.


On February 24, Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine, three days after recognising the Ukrainian breakaway regions of Donetsk and Luhansk as "independent republics". The Russian Ministry of Defense maintains that the operation is targeting Ukrainian military infrastructure only. In response, Western nations imposed comprehensive sanctions against Russia.
