    Day 700 of the russian full-scale military aggression against Ukraine has begun.

    The russian federation continues to ignore the laws and customs of warfare, using the terror tactics, launching missile and air strikes, and firing multiple launch rocket systems not only at the military, but also at numerous civilian targets across Ukraine.

The enemy launched a total of 48 missile and 112 air strikes, 73 MLRS attacks at the positions of Ukrainian troops and various settlements.
