On the night of April 11, Russia fired 40 missiles and about 40 drones at Ukraine. Some of the missiles and Shaheds were shot down, according to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

"Russian terrorists have once again targeted critical infrastructure. There was another heinous missile attack on Kharkiv and the Kharkiv region. They also targeted objects in Kyiv, Zaporizhzhia, Lviv, and Odesa regions," he says.

Zelenskyy emphasizes that Ukraine's neighbors and partners see how critical the need for air defense is. The Head of State says that Ukraine needs air defense equipment and other defense support, and "not just turning a blind eye and having lengthy discussions."

"Right now, with our ability to overcome Russian terror, the world can demonstrate that all terror is treated equally as a crime. However, if Russia is allowed to continue doing so, if Russian missiles and Shahed drones continue to strike not only Ukraine but also the resolve of our allies, this will amount to a global license for terror," Zelenskyy emphasizes.

Another massive Russian attack on Ukraine

Last night, the Russian invaders once again attacked Ukraine with kamikaze drones and missiles of various types. In particular, the Russian occupiers launched Kinzhal. According to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the Daggers flew to the west of Ukraine.

Kharkiv, Lviv, Kyiv, Odesa, Zaporizhzhia, and other regions of Ukraine were under Russian massive attack. Russians attacked critical infrastructure facilities and damaged the power grid. In the Kharkiv region, blackout schedules were introduced.
