Night drone attack

During the night into Wednesday, there was an air raid alert in many regions of Ukraine due to the launch of several groups of Russian aggressors' attack drones of the Shahed type.

In particular, enemy barrage munitions were heading towards Odesa, Uman, Dnipro, Pavlograd, and other cities in various regions. Air defense systems were actively engaged in the south of the country to repel the enemy's attack, as reported by the Defense Forces.

The Shahed alarm in Ukraine was declared only at 02:40 after the drones launched by Russian forces.
