He added the manpower of the occupiers “turned into coals, equipment into piles of scrap metal, and the BC flew into the air”.

Mr Gerashchenko continued: “Each echelon with military equipment, personnel and ammunition is tracked in real-time from space, day and night.

“If your relatives work as machinists in Ukrainian Crimea or in the regions of the Russian Federation from which trains with ammunition are delivered to the territory of Ukraine, you should know that they are potential suicide bombers!”
