Russia targets Western supply routes to hit Ukraine

Russia is complaining about the West sending weapons to Ukraine for the recent events that are happening around the country.

Russia has battered down railroad stations and other supply routes pointing across the country, as the European Union moved further to punish Moscow for the war Wednesday by proposing a ban on oil imports, a crucial source of revenue.

Heavy fighting has also raged at the Azovstal steel mill in Mariupol that represents the last pocket of Ukrainian resistance in the ruined southern port city, according to the mayor. However, Russian officials denied Moscow’s troops were storming the plant, as Ukrainian commanders claimed days earlier.

The Russian military said Wednesday it used sea and air launched missiles to destroy electric power facilities at five railway stations across Ukraine, while artillery and aircraft also struck troops strongholds, fuel and ammunition depots.

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba accused Russia of resorting to missile terrorism tactics to spread fear into Ukraine, and this accusation can lead to even more trouble for Ukraine and its citizens if he keeps this attitude of his towards Russia.
