Russia has announced the launch of another successful hypersonic missile in the White Sea
As Moscow intensifies its offensive in Ukraine, the Russian military announced on Saturday that it had successfully conducted a new test missile of the Zircon hypersonic cruise missile.
The Russian Defense Ministry says the Zircon missile was launched from Admiral Korskov’s warship in the Barents Sea into a target in the White Sea region of the Arctic.
The target, located a thousand kilometers away, was “successfully targeted”, referring to the same source. The firing was part of a series of “new weapons tests” by Russia.
Zhelensky promises to “do everything” to protect Donbass
Kyiv promised to “do everything” to protect Donbass, where the Russian military has stepped up its offensive, pushing for Ukrainian forces to consider withdrawing strategically to some front lines in the eastern part of the country to avoid siege.
“The situation in Donbass is very difficult,” President Volodymyr Zhelensky said in a video on Friday.
“We are protecting our land and doing everything we can to strengthen the security of this region,” he promised.

Russian forces have been concentrating their efforts on the Donbass, Moscow’s partial minefield, since 2014. The stated purpose now: to take full control of it.
Russian-backed separatist forces said on Friday that they had captured Lyman, a key crossroads of the Donbass.
