This is the moment Russian troops launch a missile from a ship and destroy an oil refinery supplying the Ukrainian forces.

The Russian Ministry of Defense (MoD) said on May 13: “High-precision, long-range sea- and air-based weapons on the northern outskirts Kremenchug, Poltava region, have destroyed the production facilities of an oil refinery and tankers with petrol and diesel fuel intended to supply the Ukrainian forces’ military equipment.”

In the footage, a missile is seen being launched from a Russian ship.

The scene then shifts to an overhead shot of a building, apparently a missile strike.

The Russian MoD claimed that “operational-tactical and army aviation hit 153 areas of concentrated manpower and military equipment”.

The statement continued: “Two Ukrainian Grad multiple-launch rocket launchers and one US-made air defense warning and indication radar have also been destroyed near Kharko.

“Missile troops and artillery units have hit 15 command posts, 520 areas of concentrated manpower and military equipment, 6 artillery units at firing positions, and 1 missile weapons depot near Shebelinka, Kharkov Region.

“Russian air defense forces have shot down 1 Su-27 aircraft of the Ukrainian Air Force near Lozovaya, Kharkov Region.

“Additionally, 15 Ukrainian unmanned aerial vehicles have been shot down in the air near Balakleya, Malaya Kamyshevakha, Bolshie Prokhody, Borovskoe, Prudyanka and Volokhov Yar in Kharkov Region, Topolynoe and Pavlovka in Zaporozhye Region, Yevgenovka, Yasinovataya, Yegorovka, Puteprovod, Avdeevka, Panteleimonovka and Krutaya Balka in Donetsk Region.

“2 Ukrainian Smerch multiple-launch rockets have also been shot down over Topolskoe, Kharkov Region.

“In total, 165 Ukrainian aircraft and 125 helicopters, 842 unmanned aerial vehicles, 304 anti-aircraft missile systems, 3,032 tanks and other armored combat vehicles, 368 multiple launch rocket systems, 1,491 field artillery and mortars, as well as 2,869 units of special military vehicles have been destroyed during the operation.”

In comparison, the Ukrainian military claims that Russia has lost 1,205 tanks, 2,900 armored fighting vehicles, 542 artillery systems, 193 multiple launch rocket systems, 88 anti-aircraft systems, 200 warplanes, 162 helicopters, 2,042 motor vehicles and fuel tankers, 13 vessels, 405 unmanned aerial vehicles, 41 units of special equipment and 95 cruise missiles.

Meanwhile, the total combat losses of Russian troops stand at around 26,900 personnel, according to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Russian troops invaded Ukraine on February 24 in what the Kremlin is still calling a “special military operation.” Today marks the 79th day of the campaign.
