Night attack on September 21

On the night of September 21, Russians carried out another air attack on Ukrainian territory, launching cruise missiles from Tu-95MS aircraft. The Air Force reported that two groups of missiles entered our territory: one was moving from the east in a southwest direction, and the other was heading towards the Sumy region.

During their flight, the missiles altered their trajectory and eventually reached Kyiv via the Zhytomyr region.

It should be noted that during the alert in the Cherkasy region, civil defense sirens were reported to be operational.
