The Russian Defense Ministry said Kalibr missiles were also used to destroy Western-supplied M777 howitzers and armored vehicles
Russian warships have destroyed a command center with Kalibr cruise missiles, killing dozens of Ukrainian officers, the Russian Defense Ministry said on Sunday.
“More than 50 generals and officers of the Ukrainian Armed Forces were killed,” the statement said.
According to the ministry, the strike took place near the village of Shirokaya Dacha in Dnepropetrovsk Region, Ukraine.
This hasn’t been reported by the mainstream news yet. It’ll be interesting to see what spin they put on this.

I don’t see it yet. Here’s the Russian Ministry of Defense report:
At 12.30 PM, Kalibr high-precision long-distance sea-based missiles were launched at a command post of the Ukrainian troops near the village of Shirokaya Dacha (Dnepropetrovsk region) at the moment when there was being held a working meeting of the commanders of Aleksandriya operational-strategic group.
▫️The attack has resulted in eliminating more than 50 generals and officers of the AFU, including those of the General Staff, the Kakhovka group, airborne assault troops and units that operate towards Nikolayev and Zaporozhye.

At 08.20 AM, Kalibr high-precision long-distance missiles destroyed 10 M777 155-mm howitzers and up to 20 armoured combat vehicles delivered by the West to the Kiev regime over the past 10 days that were located in a transformer plant in Nikolayev.

First time I’ve seen this – and the translator is obviously not a native English speaker.
Big losses of the AFU in manpower force the Ukrainian command to involve unprepared personnel in combats, despite their lack of necessary skills in using armament and military equipment.

Not to worry, they are only just starting now to return Ukrainian men from Poland (and other countries?) and preparing to draft women. Then there are the children still in reserve, although I have read rumors that they will start drafting
boysmen down to 16 years old.
Some lucky draftees may even become officers! Rumor is that there may be a shortage of officers due to recent early
deathserrr retirements of several top staff.

That means they went over 200 miles with pinpoint accuracy if the reports are correct. Quite the coup for Russian intelligence and for the Russian Navy.

The Confederacy was the underdog that fought above its weight, but for all its military prowess, and resolve, eventually those that were fighting that futile war became disgusted by the wealthy elites who were sitting out of the fighting, but sending them out to bleed and die.
