According to a Ukrainian military official, Ukraine destroyed two of Russia’s military ammunition stockpiles in the southern Kherson area of Ukraine.

During an interview with the Ukrainian news agency Ukrinform on Monday, Natalia Humeniuk, a press liaison for the Ukrainian military, claimed Ukrainian forces destroyed two different ammunition depots in the Kherson region. At least one, she stated, was located in the city of Nova Kakhovka.

Such attacks “not only interrupt the logistic chains of the area, but it also affects the morale of the [Russian] occupants,” stated Humeniuk, per Newsweek. She did not make clear precisely when and where each ammunition depot in Kherson was destroyed.

Ukrainian officials declared last week that their forces had destroyed two ammunition stockpiles in Nova Kakhovka using HIMARS missiles provided by the United States. It was not made clear if they were the same ones that Humeniuk was referring to in her interview with Ukrinform.

Since the beginning of the Russia-Ukraine War in late February, large swaths of the Kherson area have been under Russian control. However, Ukrainian forces have launched several successful counterattacks in the region.

A recent conflict map published last Sunday, July 17, by the Institute for the Study of War, a U.S. think tank monitoring the Russia-Ukraine War, indicated “significant fighting in the past 24 hours” around 36 miles away from the city of Kherson.

The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine declared on Monday that since the beginning of the war, Russia had lost about 38,450 personnel, 1,687 tanks, 3,886 armored combat vehicles, 849 artillery units, 248 multiple launch rocket systems, 113 air defense systems, 220 warplanes, 188 helicopters, 690 drones, 166 cruise missiles, 15 warships, 2,753 motor vehicles and fuel tankers, and 70 units of special equipment.
