"As in the previous night, a significant portion of the Shaheds was directed by the enemy towards objects of the energy infrastructure in Dnipropetrovsk," reported the Air Force.

Mobile fire groups successfully neutralized 9 enemy drones. The adversary's drones were intercepted within the boundaries of:

  • Dnipropetrovsk,

Night attack of Shaheds

On the evening of February 2 and the night of February 3, Russian invaders once again launched kamikaze drones of the Shahed type over Ukraine. Air alarms were declared in several regions.

As a result of the hostile attack, explosions were reported, notably in the Poltava region. The head of the regional administration, Filip Pronin, stated that, according to preliminary information, there were impacts in the Myrhorod district, with no reported casualties.

Later in the night, Russian forces launched several more groups of Shaheds across Ukraine. The enemy directed them multiple times for strikes, including the city of Kryvyi Rih in the Dnipropetrovsk region. Local reports mentioned sounds of explosions, likely due to the functioning of anti-aircraft defense systems.
