Ukraine’s air defenses reportedly shot down all of the drones and missiles over Mykolaiv, Kherson, Kirovohrad, Cherkasy, Zhytomyr, Dnipropetrovsk and Khmelnytskyi oblasts.

The missiles were launched from Russian-occupied Zaporizhzhia Oblast, and the drones were flying from Russia's port city of Primorsko-Akhtarsk in Krasnodar Krai, according to the Air Force.
