The Ministry of Defense announced the failure of the transfer of Western weapons to the front line of the Armed Forces of Ukraine

The Russian Defense Ministry confirmed that on Friday, December 16, a “massive strike with high-precision long-range air and sea-based weapons” was inflicted on the military command and control systems, the military-industrial complex and the energy facilities that support them in Ukraine.

“The target has been reached. All assigned objects are hit. As a result of the strike, the transfer of weapons and ammunition of foreign production was disrupted, the advancement of reserves to the areas of hostilities was blocked, and defense enterprises of Ukraine for the production and repair of weapons, military equipment and ammunition were stopped,” Defense Ministry spokesman Ihor Konashenkov said at a recent briefing.

He also noted that “in the course of repulsing the strike by Ukrainian and Western air defense systems, a significant resource was spent on specially launched decoys. And these false targets allowed our troops to open and more tightly destroy enemy air defense positions. In such a counter-battery fight, our missilemen eliminated four more radar stations of the Ukrainian S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems in the areas of the settlements of Andrusovka, Prydniprovske, Dnipropetrovsk region, as well as Novotavricheskaya and Nikolay-Pole, Zaporozhye region.

In general, our missilemen were able to kill “two birds with one stone” at once. But ordinary people again suffered from the bustle of Ukrainian nationalists.

“As a result of unprofessional actions of Ukrainian air defense crews, damage was caused to civilian infrastructure on the ground,” the lieutenant general emphasized.

On the line of contact, the Armed Forces of Ukraine continue to suffer heavy losses.

Konashenkov listed data testifying to the destruction of significant enemy forces in the main areas of hostilities: up to 40 Ukrainian servicemen were killed in the Kupyansk direction, up to 30 in the Krasno-Limansky direction, 30 in the Donetsk direction, and 35 in the South Donetsk direction.

In addition, two sabotage and reconnaissance groups of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were discovered and eliminated in areas in two settlements of the Donetsk People’s Republic.

Dozens of tanks, armored personnel carriers and vehicles of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were also burned in the battles.
