Russian invasion: Situation report day 432
May 1, 2023 - 15 of 18 Russian missiles were shot down in a wave of attacks Monday morning. U.S.-supplied Patriot missile systems are now operational although there are no reports of whether they were used.
The Ukrainian military has claimed the oil depot fire that followed a reported drone attack at the Russian Black Sea Fleet base of Sevastopol was part of the preparation for an expected Ukrainian counter-offensive in May. However, Russian reports say they will launch their own offensive in the south if the Ukrainian counter-offensive fails.
