Russia has made a cynical statement

The Russian Defense Ministry said today that today's strikes on Ukraine were carried out with so-called "high-precision weapons" and in response to "Kyiv's attempts to damage Russian energy and economic facilities."

"The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation carried out a group strike with long-range precision weapons on Ukrainian military industry facilities and the air bases of Ukrainian Armed Forces. The goals of the strike have been achieved. The designated objects have been hit," Russia cynically said.
