Ukrainian forces shot down 10 of the 17 Shahed "kamikaze" drones launched by Russia overnight, the Air Force reported on Dec. 5.

The drones were reportedly launched from Russia's Kursk Oblast and from Primorsko-Akhtarsk in Russia's Krasnodar Krai.

Russian forces also attacked with six S-300 missiles, targeting civilian areas in Donetsk and Kherson oblasts, the Air Force said.

Two of the ten drones were downed over Mykolaiv Oblast, one over Kherson Oblast, and one more over Vinnytsia Oblast, the Southern Operational Command reported.

Three drones targeted Lviv Oblast, causing minor infrastructure damage, Governor Maksym Kozytskyi reported.

Russia has attacked Ukraine with several large waves of drones in recent days. Some 23 Shaheds, as well as a Kh-59 missile, were launched against Ukraine overnight on Dec. 4.

Ukrainian officials warned earlier that Russia is likely to intensify its strikes once temperatures drop.
