Russia to target vehicles taking weapons to Ukraine

STORY: The United States and its NATO allies are continuing to pump weapons into Ukraine," Shoigu told a conference of defense ministry officials on day 70 of what Russia calls its special military operation in Ukraine.

"We view any transport of the North Atlantic Alliance arriving on the territory of the country with weapons or materials destined to the Ukrainian army as a target to be destroyed."

Russia's defense ministry said earlier that it had disabled six railway stations in Ukraine used to supply Ukrainian forces with Western-made weapons in the country's east by bombing their power supplies.

It was not possible to independently verify the claim, which did not say which Western-made weapons were supplied to Ukrainian forces via those stations. There was no immediate reaction from Kyiv.

Russia's Chief of the General Staff Valery Gerasimov was shown at Shoigu's side during the meeting of defense officials.

On Monday, the United States said it believed Gerasimov visited Ukraine's eastern Donbas region last week but could not confirm media reports that he was wounded during fighting.
