Russian troops attacked Nikopol, Dnipropetrovsk region, for the first time using drones with night vision cameras, according to Yevhen Yevtushenko, the head of Nikopol District Military Administration, and Serhii Lysak, head of Dnipropetrovsk Regional Military Administration.

"Late in the evening, Russians attacked Nikopol with kamikaze drones. The evening drone attack indicates that the Russians are using new drones with night vision cameras," Yevtushenko says.

Russia has already used such drones

According to him, such drones have been used by the Russian occupiers at the front for a long time, but this is the first case in the district.

"Nikopol greeted the morning with anxiety and a warning about the danger of the enemy using kamikaze drones. The Ukrainian Defense Forces are performing combat work. However, if possible, it is better to stay in buildings," he warns.

Consequences of the attack

According to the head of the Dnipropetrovsk Regional Military Administration, Serhii Lysak, 2 private houses, an outbuilding, and a power line were damaged as a result of the shelling in Nikopol.

"No one was killed or injured," he says, adding that at night the Russian occupiers shelled one of the villages of the Marhanets community with heavy artillery.

Russian shelling of Nikopol

Nikopol is a city in the Dnipropetrovsk region, located on the banks of the Dnipro River. Currently, it is under constant shelling by the Russians, who attack the city from the other side of the river and fire from the temporarily occupied Enerhodar in the Zaporizhzhia region.

For example, Russian troops fired at rescuers who came to extinguish a fire in Nikopol, Dnipro region, after another shelling on October 13. Two firefighters were wounded. Also, a strike on a gymnasium in Nikopol on October 11 killed four people.
