Russian invaders carried out two missile strikes on a training ground in the western Ukrainian oblast of Rivne, the head of the regional military administration, Vitaly Koval, announced via the Telegram messenger on March 21.

“Two missile strikes hit a general military training ground. An ad hoc commission is working on the spot,” he said, promising more details later.

 Later, the mayor of the city of Rivne, Oleksandr Tretyak, added that a number of Ukrainians had been injured as a result of the attack. The exact number of people affected is yet to be given.

“According to early reports, several people were left wounded. We will provide further details at a later stage," he said.

 At 0500 on Feb. 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that he had decided to launch a "special military operation" in the Donbas following a request from the puppet authorities in the non-government-controlled parts of Luhansk and Donetsk oblasts. In fact, Russian forces launched a full-scale invasion, though this is being concealed from the Russian public.

March 21 is the 26th day of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Russia is advancing from the north, east and south, indiscriminately bombing urban centres and residential areas.

From the first days of the war, the situation has been most dire in Kharkiv, Chernihiv, Sumy, in Kyiv and its outskirts.

The invaders are also trying to seize the government-controlled parts of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts.
