The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation carried out a massive missile attack territory of Ukraine on December 31, 2022. The Russian army defeated the deployment point of the 8th regiment of the Special Operations Forces (SOF) of Ukraine in the city of Khmelnitsky.

This facility is the largest training center for special forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the western part of the country. There were also units that suffered heavy losses after the attacks of the Russian army on the Yavoriv training ground in the Lvov region.

The 8th regiment of the SOF suffered colossal damage: there are dozens of “two-hundredths” and “three-hundredths”. Foreign officers-instructors could be located at the facility.

Against the Russian air defense missile, Ukraine turned out to be powerless.
