Russian troops have conducted around 30,000 strikes on Ukrainian territory over the past three months, Deputy Interior Minister Oleksii Serhieiev said on April 5 during a meeting with the Christian Social Union representatives at the Bavarian State Parliament.

Over the whole of 2023, the number of such strikes was approximately 66,000, according to Serhieiev.

President Volodymyr Zelensky announced on April 3 that in March, Russian forces reportedly launched over 400 missiles of various types, 600 Shahed drones, and 3,000 guided aerial bombs at Ukraine.

Russian attacks also damaged or completely destroyed 80% of the thermal generating capacity of Ukraine's largest private energy company DTEK in March, according to the company's Executive Director Dmytro Sakharuk.
