Russian forces launched a missile attack on Khmelnytskyi Oblast's Starokostiantyniv district, the Air Force's spokesperson Yuri Ihnat said at around 8 p.m. on July 26.

The Khmelnytskyi Regional Military Administration reported explosions in the oblast at around 7 p.m. amid a nationwide air raid siren.

"Sounds of explosions are heard in Khmelnytskyi Oblast. Air defense is active," the administration reported.

At around 5 p.m., the Air Force reported that 12 Russian Tu-95 bombers launched cruise missiles from the direction of the Caspian Sea. The announcement was followed by air raid sirens across the country.

Ihnat said that cruise missiles changed directions as they moved across the country before heading in the direction of Starokostiantyniv in Khmelnytskyi Oblast.

Some of the missiles were shot down over Kyiv, Kharkiv, and Dnipropetrovsk oblasts, he said.

Ihnat mentioned that several other projectiles were detected, possibly including Kinzhals and ballistic missiles.

The Air Force issued warnings of Kinzhal strikes in Kirovohrad, Kmelnytskyi, and Kyiv oblasts before announcing the end of the air raid siren.

Debris from falling missiles fell on a house in Starokostiantyniv and damaged a car, the Khmelnytskyi Military Administration reported on Telegram. No casualties have been reported.
