About 60 Russian soldiers were killed in a long-range Ukrainian artillery attack this week, Kyiv said on Saturday, the second time in four days that Ukraine has claimed to have inflicted major casualties in a single incident.

In a Facebook post, the Armed Forces General Staff said Russia suffered the casualties on Thursday when Ukrainian forces shelled the town of Mykhailkva, 40 km (25 miles) south of Kherson. Russian forces abandoned the town earlier this month.

He gave no further details. The Russian Defense Ministry did not immediately respond to a request for comment, and Reuters was unable to independently verify the Ukrainian military’s account.

The United States has provided Ukraine with advanced rocket systems capable of hitting targets up to 80 km away.

Ukraine said on Wednesday that around 50 Russian soldiers were killed or injured on Tuesday in a shelling of the village of Denezhnykove, 70 km behind the front lines in the eastern province of Luhansk.
