Three drones targeted Lviv Oblast overnight, causing minor damage to an infrastructure facility, Governor Maksym Kozytskyi reported.

While the attack resulted in no casualties, the western region is not a common target of Russian strikes.

In Sumy Oblast, a Russian mortar attack injured a person in the Velyka Pysarivka area, the Sumy Oblast Military Administration reported.

Chernihiv, Dnipropetrovsk, Luhansk, Mykolaiv, and Zaporizhzhia oblasts also came under attack, but local officials reported no casualties.

Ukrainian air defenses downed 10 of the 17 Shahed kamikaze drones launched by Russia overnight, the Air Force reported.

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