Estimated 120 Russian Soldiers Killed/Injured After Missile Strike

The New Voice of Ukraine reported last week that a pro-Ukraine Telegram channel claimed that as many as 120 Russian troops were either killed or wounded in a HIMARS strike on Sunday, October 29.

According to a Telegram post from Serditaya Chuvashia, the Ukrainian strike destroyed ten vehicles from the Chuvash Battalion as it was preparing to move. While the precise number of casualties was unknown, the post claimed that the battalion was nearly completely destroyed.

Another unverified source claimed that 19 soldiers were killed and another 40 were wounded.

Russian officials in the occupied territory have not confirmed the casualties.

Last Wednesday, Ukrainian officials confirmed that Russian forces launched an attack on the eastern city of Kherson that caused serious damage to the city center and killed one person, the Associated Press reported.

Another civilian woman was killed in the city of Nikopol in a Russian drone strike.

Russia seized Kherson early in the war but abandoned the city last year. Despite withdrawing from Kherson, Russian forces continue to attack the city from the other side of the Dnieper River.

According to the Associated Press, last Wednesday’s attack wounded two others.

The drone strike in Nikopol, which is on the opposite side of the Dnieper from the Russian-held nuclear power plant in Zaporizhzhia, also injured four people, according to the regional governor.

Oleksii Kuleba, the deputy head of President Zelensky’s office, said Russian forces increased the “number and intensity of strikes” last Wednesday with air raid sirens going off in “numerous regions.”

Three civilians were killed in last Wednesday’s attacks in the south and east, and at least another 16 civilians were injured, according to Kuleba.

One civilian was killed in rocket attacks on Beryslav and other nearby villages in the Kherson region. Another was killed in Donetsk while a third was killed near Kupyansk near the Kharkiv front line.
