This information was confirmed by the Air Force press center of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

The attack originated from the south, near Cape Chauda in Crimea. The enemy drones were dispatched in different directions, targeting the southern, eastern, and central regions of Ukraine. Ukrainian anti-aircraft defenses effectively intercepted the hostile drones along their flight paths.

Additionally, a Kh-59 missile was launched by a Russian Su-34 aircraft from the temporarily occupied Zaporizhzhia region, and an unidentified drone likely took off from the northern border.

Thanks to the coordinated efforts of Ukrainian anti-aircraft missile units, mobile fire teams, the Air Force, and the Air Defense Forces, all hostile air threats were eliminated. The casualties on the enemy side included:

13 Shahed-136/131 drones.
1 guided air missile (Kh-59).
1 unidentified attack drone.

  • The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported that in the past 24 hours, Russian forces conducted 10 missile strikes and 63 air raids on Ukraine.
