There have been reports this evening, Sunday, April 30, of a large attack by Russian forces on the city of Pavlohrad in the eastern Ukrainian region of Dnipropetrovsk.

According to unconfirmed reports, at least six Russian TU-95 bombers took off from an airfield in Murmansk, while more planes were also allegedly launched from the Engels airbase.

Video footage posted on numerous telegram channels shows large explosions occurring. Their locations have not been verified but are believed to have been the Pavlograd-1 and Pavlograd-2 train stations.

He accompanied the message with an image of a large explosion.

In a subsequent message, he added: “Counted 17 Russian Tu-95 strategic bombers already in the air. Their combined salvo is at least 100 cruise missiles. But everyone knows that Russia ran out of missiles a long time ago and has nothing to shoot with. Podolyak and Arestovich will not lie!”.
