During the night, Air Force units shot down 12 drones and an Kh-59 air-to-air missile, the Air Force reports.

In total, the Russians attacked with six S-300 anti-aircraft guided missiles, three Kh-22 cruise missiles, an Kh-59 guided anti-aircraft missile, and 14 Shahed attack drones.

Anti-aircraft missile units and mobile fire groups of the Air Force and the Defense Forces of Ukraine, as well as radio-electronic warfare equipment, were involved in repelling the air attack.

Drones and a Kh-59 guided air missile were shot down within the borders of Chernihiv, Sumy, Poltava, Kirovohrad, and Dnipropetrovsk regions.

The occupiers struck an infrastructure object in the Poltava district. This caused a fire, which has already been extinguished — no one was injured.

Also, fighters destroyed a Su-34 fighter in the Eastern direction at 06:00.
