Ukrainian artillery destroy Russian military vehicles.

Ukrainian artillery took out Russian military vehicles after conducting reconnaissance with paratroopers.

The footage shows what appears to be a farmhouse with a group of vehicles surrounding it and somewhat camouflaged by dugouts. The area appears to be repeatedly hit, with smoke rising into the air as the footage ends.

It is unclear where exactly the images were filmed, but they were obtained from the Command of the Assault Troops of the Armed Forces of Ukraine along with a statement on Tuesday, 28th June, saying: "Artillery units of the Air assault troops of the Armed Forces of Ukraine continue to destroy the Russian occupiers.

"In one of the areas of hostilities, after the paratroopers conducted additional reconnaissance, an accumulation of enemy vehicles was found.

"After that, artillery joined the cause. According to the calculations, fire damage was inflicted and several trucks of the invaders were destroyed.

"Death to the Russian occupiers! DShV [Ukrainian Air Assault Forces] - Always First! Glory to Ukraine!"

The images were also relayed by the Strategic Communications Department (StratCom) of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Russia invaded Ukraine on 24th February in what the Kremlin is calling a "special military operation". Today marks the 126th day of the invasion.

The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported that between 24th February and 29th June, Russia had lost about 35,450 personnel, 1,572 tanks, 3,720 armoured combat vehicles, 781 artillery units, 246 multiple launch rocket systems, 103 air defence systems, 217 warplanes, 185 helicopters, 640 drones, 142 cruise missiles, 14 warships, 2,598 motor vehicles and fuel tankers, and 61 units of special equipment.

Turkey has agreed to support Finland and Sweden's NATO membership after having initially opposed the countries' bids to join the military alliance.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had met with Finland's President Sauli Niinisto and Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson at the NATO summit in Madrid.

Jens Stoltenberg, the NATO Secretary General, said: “I am pleased to announce that we now have an agreement that paves the way for Finland and Sweden to join NATO.”

US President Joe Biden congratulated the three countries, saying: “Congratulations to Finland, Sweden, and Turkey on signing a trilateral memorandum – a crucial step towards a NATO invite to Finland and Sweden, which will strengthen our Alliance and bolster our collective security – and a great way to begin the Summit.”

The Russian bombing on a shopping mall in the central Ukrainian city of Kremenchuk has been described by President Zelenskyy as one of the "most brazen terrorist acts in European history". Over 1,000 people are said to have been inside the building when it was hit by missiles.

The death toll has risen to 18 people confirmed dead, with another 59 injured and 25 being treated in hospital. Some 36 people are still unaccounted for.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has urged the United Nations to visit the site and has urged for Russia to be expelled as a permanent member of the UN Security Council, accusing the country of having become a “terrorist state”.

Russia claimed on Tuesday that it had hit a nearby weapons depot, with the explosion sparking the shopping mall blaze.

NATO is planning to boost its quick reaction forces from 40,000 troops to over 300,000 troops.
