Numerous people have been killed in Russian bombardments. The Mariupol’s Azovstal metallurgical Plant, one of Europe’s largest, has almost been completely destroyed. According to the authorities of this city, they have guaranteed that Russian troops are reported to be evacuating residents of the city and moving them to Russian territory.
The United States confirmed Sunday that Russia used hypersonic weapons in the Ukraine war. It is now the first use of such weapons in combat, according to CNN. Officials from the United States have stated that it is probable that the launches were meant to test the weapons and “send a message to West” regarding Russian capabilities. On March 19, the Russian Defense Ministry confirmed the use of the ‘Kinzhal’ hypersonic weapon for the first times since the invasion of Ukraine.
