Russia launches drone and missile attacks on Ukraine, and Ukrainian Defense Forces target Russian positions

In total, Russia launched 1 missile, 8 air strikes, 34 MLRS attacks at the positions of Ukrainian troops and populated areas. Tragically, civilians suffered casualties and injuries due to Russian terrorist attacks, causing destruction to private homes and other civilian infrastructure.

In the recent assault, Russian forces utilized a Kh-59 guided missile and a Shahed-136/131 UAV. Ukrainian air defense successfully intercepted and destroyed the Kh-59 missile, and the drone did not reach its target.

Today, Russian troops struck Ukraine once more, deploying 2 S-300 anti-aircraft guided missiles on Velykyi Burluk in the Kharkiv region. Airstrikes hit Novomykhailivka and Prechystivka in the Donetsk region.

Over 120 settlements in various regions, including Chernihiv, Sumy, Kharkiv, Luhansk, Donetsk, Zaporizhzhia, Dnipropetrovsk, Kherson, and Mykolaiv, faced Russian artillery fire.

Simultaneously, Ukrainian missile forces targeted 2 concentrations of Russian personnel, weapons, military equipment, and 2 fuel and lubricant warehouses.

  • According to ISW reports, Russian troops are escalating offensive actions amid challenging weather conditions, attempting to seize the initiative before the upcoming presidential elections in Russia. Meanwhile, the Defense Forces of Ukraine are holding defensive positions without engaging in counterattacks.
