Some 63 Russian soldiers are killed and scores others injured when projectiles fired by Ukrainian Forces from U.S. -made HIMARS Muliple Rocket Launchers fell on their positions in the occupied DPR region.
"The Kiev regime delivered a strike firing six projectiles from the US-made HIMARS multiple rocket launcher on a Russian unit near Makeyevka in the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR). The attack left 63 Russian service members killed," Russia’s Defense Ministry's spokesperson told reporters on Monday.
"As a result of the hit by four rockets with a high-explosive warhead of a temporary deployment point, 63 Russian servicemen were killed. The relatives and friends of the dead servicemen will be provided with all the necessary assistance and support," he said.
This is perhaps the first time the Russian MoD has admitted to such a high casualty figure in its war with Ukraine.
While Russia continued to attack Ukrainian positions with drones and missiles, Ukraine's air defense forces destroyed 39 Russian Shahed drones, two Orlan-10s and a Kh-59 guided air missile on the night of January 1 to January 2.
