Last night, the Russian occupiers attacked Ukraine with attack drones. This was reported by the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the morning briefing.

"The occupiers once again attacked Ukraine, using four UAVs of the Shahed type. The forces and means of air defense of Ukraine managed to destroy all UAVs," the message says.

The commander of the Air Forces of the Ukrainian Armed Forces Mykola Oleschuk specified that Shahed drones destroyed units of mobile fire groups of the Defense Forces of Ukraine in the Khmelnytskyi, Zhytomyr, Kirovohrad and Cherkasy regions.

The Russian army launched drones from Primorsko-Akhtarsk.

Also, the occupiers from the temporarily occupied territory of the Donetsk region launched three S-300 missiles at ground targets, the commander noted.

  • The Russian occupiers attack Ukraine almost every night with attack drones and regularly launch missile strikes on the territory of the country. On December 29, the occupiers carried out the most massive attack on Ukraine at that time, using 158 means of air attack. Since the beginning of March, the occupiers have fired 130 missiles, approximately 320 Shahed and 900 guided aerial bombs over Ukraine.
