Every day, artillery crews of the Southern Military District conduct a counter-battery fight against the enemy as part of a special military operation in Ukraine. The crews of artillery pieces “Msta-B” are actively involved in this. This was announced on Sunday, November 6, in the Russian Ministry of Defense.
As clarified in the defense department, the actions of the artillery of the RF Armed Forces make it possible to eliminate samples of weapons and military equipment supplied to Ukraine from abroad, informs TASS.
In particular, the crews of the Msta-B artillery guns of the Southern Military District destroyed the closed firing positions of the artillery of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU).
High-explosive, high-explosive fragmentation, as well as precision-guided munitions are used during the operation of the Msta-B installations. This gives the Russian military the opportunity to inflict maximum damage on the enemy.
On November 5, the Russian Ministry of Defense said that aviation, missile troops and artillery of the Russian Armed Forces hit five command posts of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the DPR and the Kherson region. At the same time, it was possible to destroy the command post of the 15th regiment of the National Guard of Ukraine in the Krasny Liman area, units of the 60th infantry brigade, as well as eliminate 87 artillery units in firing positions.
