Russia claims to kill “180 foreign mercenaries” in strike on western Ukraine

Russia said that an airstrike it carried out in Ukraine, near the Polish border, killed foreign citizens who had joined Kyiv’s army in its fight against Russia.

“As a result of the strike, up to 180 foreign mercenaries and a large cache of foreign weapons were destroyed”, - said Russian defense ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov, in a statement that was wildly at odds with Ukrainian and other accounts of the incident.

He claimed the missiles destroyed a training center for foreign fighters, as well as a storage facility for weapons and military equipment delivered to Ukraine.
