The Armed Forces of Ukraine has successfully destroyed a Russian ammunition depot where S-300 missiles used to bomb Kharkiv oblast are being kept.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky celebrated the Kyiv army's victory during an address at the end of the 194th day of the war on Monday. The Ukrainian army used M270 multiple-launch rocket systems (MLRS), sometimes referred to as "God's finger" because of its firepower, to destroy the depot. It was not specified where the Russian ammunition depot was located.

"I also want to thank all our people in the temporarily occupied territories who help our army destroy the objects of the invaders," Zelensky said in the address.

"And today I especially want to thank the warriors of one of our rocket artillery brigades, who with their accurate fire destroyed the very Russian depot from which the occupiers took S-300 missiles to bomb Kharkiv. MLRS is a good thing. Thank you, our heroes!"

Towards the end of his address, Zelensky also said that the Ukraine armed forces are continuing to destroy Russian warehouses, bases and headquarters very carefully and accurately as the war stretches into its seventh month.

"The Russian army entered the territory of Ukraine without expecting resistance. And it will run away from here having no other hope of salvation," he added.

Zelensky's remarks come as the Ukrainian army continues to make steady progress in its counteroffensive in the occupied Kherson Oblast, forcing Moscow-appointed officials in the region to pause a planned referendum on joining Russia due to the "security situation," Kirril Stremousov, deputy head of the Kherson region's military civilian administration, said in an interview with Russian-state news agency TASS.

Stremousov also noted that the Ukrainian army has stopped any traffic from crossing the Dnipro River after it attacked the Antonovsky Bridge again on Monday.

In addition to targeting the bridge, Ukraine forces also successfully liberated the village of Vysokopillia in Kherson Oblast on Sunday. The village is located at the mouth of the Dnipro River's exit into the Black Sea. A Ukrainian flag now flies on the roof of a hospital found in the village, according to Kherson Oblast Council first deputy head Yuriy Sobolevskyi.
