Russia: Ukrainian Drones Attack Steel Mill in Overnight Raid

Source: US News & World Report

“A ‘swarm’ of Ukrainian drones targeted Russian steelmaker Novolipetsk Steel’s facility in a raid in the early hours of Sunday, but it sustained no serious damage, a company spokesperson said. The attack achieved no results other than causing extra welding work, the spokesperson said. Igor Artamonov, the governor of the Lipetsk region in western Russia where the steel mill is located, said in a separate statement that nine drones had been downed over the steel mill. Kyiv does not officially confirm or deny such attacks, but says the facilities being hit are supporting Russia’s war in Ukraine and are thus legitimate military targets.” (06/30/24)
