**Voice of Hope Reports: Ukrainian Army Strikes Russian-Occupied Air Force Base**

In a comprehensive report by our reporter Chang Qing, Voice of Hope brings you the latest updates on the Russo-Ukrainian war.

On April 17, the Ukrainian army launched a series of air strikes on the Russian-occupied Crimean Zhankoy Air Force Base, dealing a significant blow to the Russian military. The attack targeted the 39th Helicopter Regiment of the 27th Mixed Aviation Division of the 4th Command of the Air Force and Air Defense Forces of the Russian Southern Military District, causing massive damage to Russian military equipment, including helicopters and S-400 launchers.

According to satellite images, the Ukrainian army estimated that the Russian army suffered losses of up to 10 Mi-28 helicopters, 2 Ka-52 helicopters, and all 5 S-400 launchers, amounting to a staggering $710 million in losses. The attack was carried out using MGM-140 ATACMS tactical ballistic missiles, with reports indicating that the military equipment reception and maintenance point was also hit.

In a separate incident, the Russian military launched a missile strike on the northern Ukrainian city of Chernihiv, resulting in the deaths of 17 people and injuries to more than 60 individuals, including children. Ukrainian President Zelensky called for allies to provide air defense systems to counter such attacks.

Meanwhile, a BBC investigation has confirmed that the death toll of Russian troops in Ukraine has exceeded 50,000, with reports suggesting that Russia has been employing a “meat grinder” strategy on the front line. The figure is nearly 25% higher than the previous year, emphasizing the toll of the ongoing conflict.
