  1. “The following Russian losses, inflicted by Ukraine’s jet artillery units, have been confirmed: 35 personnel, a Msta-B howitzer, a Nona self-propelled artillery gun, nine armored vehicles and trucks.

    No doubt, they mean MLRS with “jet artillery”. Anyhow, a good day for Ukraine on the frontline and a bad one for the orcs.
