Russian military facility targeted by gunman as Moscow continues to target Ukraine’s civilian infrastructure

A Russian military facility training facility has been targeted by gunman, leaving 11 people dead.

15 others have been wounded.

It’s believed the attackers were from a former Soviet republic and were also shot dead during the altercation.

The targeted group had volunteered to fight in the war and were at a training camp in Russia’s Belgorod region, an area bordering Ukraine.

Rape accusations

This comes as a UN envoy accuses Russia of using rape as a military strategy.

The envoy confirmed rape is is being used as a a “deliberate tactic to dehumanise the victims.”

“When women are held for days and raped, when you start to rape little boys and men, when you see a series of genital mutilations, when you hear women testify about Russian soldiers equipped with Viagra – it’s clearly a military strategy,” the envoy said.

The United Nations has now verified more than a hundred cases of rape or sexual violence in Ukraine since the war began.

The victims are mostly women and girls, but also men and boys.

Civilian infrastructure targeted

Russia’s military is continuing to target civilian infrastructure.

As Zaporizhzhia is pounded, an energy facility near Ukraine’s capital of Kyiv was also hit.

Kyiv says Russia has been increasingly deploying so-called “kamikaze drones” in its attacks.

Meanwhile, Moscow has ramped up its evacuations from the Kherson region where Ukrainian counteroffensive has reportedly intensified.

In the U.S., speaking to Face the Nation on CBS, Ukraine’s ambassador to America stressed the importance of nuclear deterrence.

This is in response to comments from French President Macron who stated he would not commit to making a strike in retaliation if Russia used nuclear force.

“We in Ukraine will resist and we will not give up regardless of what Russian Federation uses against us,” the ambassador said. “We have, I think, proven it. From rockets, to atrocities, to anything that they try to do in Ukraine, it doesn’t break our will. There is no point for Russian Federation using anything else. It will not stop us in defending our homes.”
