Russia says 63 troops killed in Ukrainian attack on Makiivka

Russia has said that 63 of its troops were killed during a Ukrainian New Year’s Eve attack on a makeshift barracks in the partly-occupied Donetsk region.
The ministry said in a statement on Monday that Ukraine’s military had launched six projectiles at the “provisional base” in the eastern city of Makiivka using the HIMARS guided rocket system supplied by the United States.
Two of the missiles were shot down by Russian air defences, it added, but four struck the building.
