Pro-Russian forces launch rockets on the eastern Ukraine frontline.

The footage purports to show artillery units in the pro-Russian, so-called Luhansk People's Republic and in the Donetsk People's Republic in action in eastern Ukraine.

The footage begins by showing a piece of artillery firing multiple rounds from the edge of a forest at unseen targets. The footage then shows multiple rocket launcher vehicles with the letter 'V' daubed on them firing multiple salvos into the air.

The images were obtained from the Russian Ministry of Defence (MoD) on the evening of Wednesday, 22nd June, with the MoD saying that the footage shows the "combat work of artillery in the LPR and DPR".

Russia invaded Ukraine on 24th February in what the Kremlin is calling a "special military operation". Today marks the 120th day of the invasion.

The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported that between 24th February and 23rd June, Russia had lost about 34,430 personnel, 1,504 tanks, 3,632 armoured combat vehicles, 756 artillery units, 240 multiple launch rocket systems, 99 air defence systems, 216 warplanes, 183 helicopters, 620 drones, 137 cruise missiles, 14 warships, 2,548 motor vehicles and fuel tankers, and 60 units of special equipment.

The Ukrainian military has said that it has launched airstrikes on Zmiinyi Island, which is also known as Snake Island, causing “significant losses” to Russia’s forces there in an operation that it says is ongoing.
