Overnight Airstrikes: Russia Targets Northern and Central Ukraine

According to authorities, on Sunday night, Russia attacked Ukraine from the air, firing missiles over various northern and central regions of the nation.

Out of up to eight total airborne targets discovered, the Ukrainian military reported shooting down four cruise missiles, adding that the remaining targets were “probably false” Additionally, it stated that there were no recent reports of strikes.

Ruslan Kravchenko, the governor of the Kyiv region, reported that 10 structures had been destroyed and two persons had been injured as a result of falling missile debris in an unidentified part of the area.

 Early on Sunday, all of Ukraine was on air raid alert for almost three hours before it was lifted at around six in the morning (0300 GMT).

As part of its 18-month-old full-scale invasion, Russia has conducted a campaign of routine airstrikes using missiles and drones on Ukrainian targets far from the front line.

On Sunday, the Russian defense ministry said on the Telegram messaging service that its forces had shot down two drones over the course of the previous night in the bordering Ukrainian regions of Bryansk and Kursk.

According to authorities, on Sunday night, Russia attacked Ukraine from the air, firing missiles over various northern and central regions of the nation.

There was no mention of potential casualties or damage.

Meanwhile, the governor of Kursk, Roman Starovoit, said that a drone had struck a tall residential building in the region’s capital. It wasn’t immediately apparent whether it was intended for the structure or whether it fell after being shot down by air defenses, as the Defense Ministry claimed.

No one was wounded, according to Starovoit, although several windows were broken. Since two drones were shot down above the Kremlin in early May, drone attacks against Russian targets, particularly in Crimea (which Moscow invaded in 2014) and in regions bordering Ukraine, have nearly become a daily occurrence.

In recent weeks, the attacks have caused delays for flights into and out of Moscow. Ukraine rarely admits direct responsibility for such drone attacks, but claims that obliterating Russian military facilities aids in its counteroffensive, which it launched in June.
