The drones were launched from Cape Chauda in occupied Crimea.

Russian forces also launched four S-300 surface-to-air guided missiles onto Donetsk Oblast. No information was provided by the Air Force as to the outcome of the missile launches.

The drones were intercepted over Kherson, Odesa, Dnipropetrovsk, and Poltava oblasts.

According to Suspilne, drone fragments reportedly fell on Dnipropetrovsk Oblast causing a fire near a grain elevator. No casualties or injuries were reported as a result of the drone attacks.

Mobile fire groups of the Ukrainian Air Force were involved in repelling the air attacks.
