The Russians claim Ukraine has been attacked on a large scale

Russian forces launched several strikes against Ukrainian assets overnight, hitting hundreds of targets, including an area purported to contain large quantities of weapons supplied by the West.

Igor Konashenkov, a spokesman for the Ministry of Defense, later told state media that Russian aircraft struck a logistics facility outside the western Ukrainian city of Lviv and destroyed a significant amount of weapons that went to the United States and other allies.

In a statement on April 18, the Russian Ministry of Defense said that air-launched missiles destroyed 16 Ukrainian military facilities, including command posts, ammunition warehouses, and a fuel depot in the regions of Kharkiv, Zaporizhzhia, Donetsk, and Dnipropetrovsk.

Also on April 18, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that U.S. and European sanctions against him and other government assets have failed.
