Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu ordered some of their forces to focus on eliminating Ukraine’s long-range missile and artillery systems during his visit to a Kremlin-occupied territory earlier this week.

Shoigu instructed the Vostok battalion commander “to prioritize the defeat of long-range rocket and artillery weapons of the enemy with high-precision weapons,” the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement Monday.

Moreover, Shoigu accused Ukraine of using its long-range rockets to target residential areas in Donbas and intentionally setting wheat fields and grain storage silos on fire. In retaliation, the Russian forces destroyed a High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS) launcher and a transport-loading vehicle in the Donetsk region and struck a warehouse in Odesa containing Harpoon anti-ship weapons, the defense ministry said. However, both sides haven’t commented on those reported claims.
