By now it’s pretty clear that Ukraine has been bombarding Russia as part of Kyiv’s defensive campaign. As Russia’s wider war on Ukraine enters its third month, the Ukrainians at least four times appear to have lobbed Tochka ballistic missiles at military targets on the Russian side of their shared border.
The latest possible strike took place in the early morning hours Sunday. A pair of oil depots in Bryansk, in western Russia 70 miles from Ukraine, exploded and burned through the following day.
While it’s always possible the blazes were the result of industrial accidents, it’s telling that the two explosions occurred nearly simultaneously, miles apart.
The Tochka attacks are just one of Kyiv’s methods of disrupting Russian operations on the far side of the border. It also seems Ukrainian attack helicopters have slipped across the border to attack Russian oil infrastructure. And there are unconfirmed reports of saboteurs targeting rail lines leading toward Ukraine.
