First up, an Tornado-S hit on an AFU depot.

The 9A52-4 Tornado is Russia’s newest 300 mm multiple rocket launcher. It was designed as a lightweight and universal version of the BM-30 Smerch, dubbed 9A52-2. It was first unveiled in 2007 as a more strategically and tactically mobile launcher, albeit at the expense of a slight reduction in firepower. This model is aimed at replacing the previous generation of Russian multiple rocket launchers, including BM-21 Grad, BM-27 Uragan and BM-30 Smerch. Currently the sole operator is Russian Ground Forces. A version will be approved for export.

Next up, one of Russia’s favorite targets – the rail bridge into Odessa taking yet another hit. This bridge is a double-deck rail-trucking bridge on Route P70 supplying Odess from Romania.
Note the barge strategically positioned to absorb cruise missile hits to the crucial tower:
