Russia sent 25 drones to Ukraine on Friday night, 11 of which were shot down, the Ukrainian General Staff said.
The Air Force is talking about 24 Russian drones. One hit a power station in the city of Kryvyi Rih in the central part of the country, according to the Russian-language BBC server, the energy company Ukrenerho reported. About 40,000 people are without electricity in the city in the Dnepropetrovsk region.
The drones attacked targets in at least three different areas of the country. The authorities in the Kirovohrad region said that the raid was thwarted and, according to preliminary data, there were no casualties. Air raids and shelling at night hit the Kharkiv region in the north-east of Ukraine, according to the local governor Oleh Synehubov, 64 villages are without electricity.
Ukraine reports airstrikes and shelling almost every night. The country has been fending off a Russian invasion for nearly two years, with Russia ramping up attacks on cities and infrastructure again before the start of winter last year. Despite numerous evidence and testimonies from the media, Ukrainian authorities and international organizations, Moscow repeatedly claims that it does not attack civilian targets.
