Earlier, on Nov. 16, Ukraine hit a missile weapons depot near Russian-occupied Luhansk. The depot was reportedly a former mine mechanical workshop and was used by the Russian army as a hangar for repairing and storing heavy equipment.

Before that, Ukrainian forces struck two air bases near the Russian-occupied cities of Berdyansk and Luhansk on Oct. 17 with recently secretly supplied ATACMS long-range missiles, marking the first time that the U.S.-provided weapons were used in the war, U.S. newspaper the Wall Street Journal reported, citing its sources.
