Following news that the West had supplied tanks to Ukraine, there was a surge in Russian bomber activity.

Not shortly after it noticed a group of Russian bombers take off, Ukraine quickly cut electricity to numerous locations and issued a nationwide air strike warning.

A nationwide air strike alert was set in Ukraine on January 26, according to the PravdaUkraine news agency. This was done out of worry that Russia would conduct a massive missile attack on important locations.

Six Tu-95 bombers also took out from Russia’s Murmansk region and fired missiles against Ukraine, according to the Ukrainian Air Force’s spokesman, Yuriy Ignat. “In various locations, more than 30 missiles have surfaced. The air defence is in operation. Explosions, particularly in the Vinnytsia region, have occurred “explained Mr. Ignat.

At least three Russian Tu-22M3 strategic bombers took off, according to Oleksandr Sienkevych, the mayor of Mykolaiv in southern Ukraine. According to Ukrainian media, which was cited by RiaNovosti, there was an explosion in Mykolaiv, although the reason and extent of the damage remained unknown.

Natalia Humeniuk, a spokeswoman for the Ukrainian Southern Operations Command, claims that Russia also keeps three missile boats in the Black Sea that are capable of launching 20 Kalibr cruise missiles. She said, “We are monitoring the strategic air operations of the adversary from the direction of the Caspian Sea.

The head of office of the Ukrainian president, Andriy Yermak, declared that the nation’s air defence forces had just completed the “first downing of a Russian missile.” To lessen the risk, Ukrainian energy personnel are managing sudden power outages in Kiev, Odessa, and Dnipropetrovsk.

Earlier, the Ukrainian side acknowledged that on January 26, at dawn, Russia had fired 24 suicide drones (UAVs) towards targets in this nation, but that all of them had been intercepted. According to Ukraine, those drones are launched from the Sea of Azov’s eastern coast.

The most recent raid occurred just after Kyiv would receive support from the US and its European allies in the form of numerous M1 Abrams and Leopard 2 combat tanks. Moscow has frequently stated that if the West reacted, it would do the same.

Military experts have long assumed that Russia frequently performs strikes with inexpensive unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in order to overwhelm Ukraine’s air defence assets, which are significantly more expensive to maintain. More over half of Ukraine’s energy infrastructure has been destroyed by Russian missile and drone attacks since October 2022.
