Putin has been left humiliated after Ukrainian troops downed over 30 drones in an air attack. Russia struck central and southern Ukraine yesterday in an air attack which saw 46 drones launched overnight, the Ukrainian Air Force has claimed.

They were reportedly launched from Balaklava in Crimea and Russia’s Primorsko-Akhtarsk in two waves, 15 minutes apart. The attack lasted seven hours.

A video has been shared on social media of a military ship in Odesa port firing from the water into the sky, trying to hit the drones.

The Air Force managed to shoot 32 of them down using aircraft, surface-to-air missiles, and mobile fire groups.

“Most of the drones that failed to be shot down attacked the frontline areas, in particular Kherson Oblast.

“Several other UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) crashed without causing any damage,” the Air Force wrote.

Air defences were active in Mykolaiv, Odesa, Kherson, Dnipropetrovsk, Vinnytsia, Zaporizhzhia, Khmelnytskyi, and Kirovohrad regions.

Fifteen of the 42 drones were downed in the south with the rest downed elsewhere.

Falling wreckage is believed to have killed two civilians, with Odesa Oblast regional chief Oleh Kiper saying: “Four victims were discovered in the suburbs of Odesa, including a 17-year-old teenager.

“One person died on the spot, and another man, who was taken to hospital in serious condition, died. The teenager remains in hospital, the woman and the man are being treated on an outpatient basis.”
