Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

Russia has launched at least 60 Iranian-made kamikaze drones against Ukraine in the latest attack. Thirty-six drones were aimed at the capital of Kyiv but were shot down.  Falling debris caused at least 5 injuries and a food warehouse was set on fire in the Black Sea port of Odesa causing at least 3 injuries.  This following the Wagner Group’s threat to withdraw from Bakhmut due to inadequate supply of ammunition, but now deciding to stay after leader Yevgeny Prigozhin received promises from Russia for “as much ammunition and weapons as we need to continue further operations,” according to The Guardian. Also, the attack came on May 8, the day before Russia celebrates Victory Day, a commemoration of Nazi Germany’s surrender in 1945. To emphasize ongoing differences, the holiday was observed on May 8 in Ukraine.
