Quote from Air Force Command: "On the eastern front, an enemy company combat group was hit and one occupier stronghold was also destroyed."

Details: Defenders have reiterated that explosive objects dropped or left by the Russian forces continue to be found in Ukrainian forests and on its lands.

For example, in the Vinnytsia region, forest rangers found a Russian Kalibr cruise missile that was shot down by the Air Force's anti-aircraft defence forces on 21 May. The missile's warhead was intact, meaning the Kalibr was shot down on its way to the target.

Defenders warned that debris from missiles or other munitions is extremely dangerous. The warhead of the missile that was found weighs 400 kilograms.

The authorities, the police or the military must be notified immediately if such dangerous items are found.
