A Russian drone struck a car in the Marhanets community in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, wounding two people, Serhii Lysak, the regional governor, reported on Feb. 7.

Marhanets is part of the region's Nikopol district, which is subjected to near-daily Russian attacks due to its proximity to the Russian-occupied part of Zaporizhzhia Oblast.

A 60-year-old woman and a 38-year-old man suffered injuries when the Russian drone dropped explosives on their car, according to Lysak.

“Fortunately, they were not fatally injured. However, the shock they experienced will not pass soon,” Lysak said on Telegram.

Russia launched another large-scale attack against Ukrainian cities early in the morning, targeting Kyiv, Lviv, Mykolaiv, Dnipropetrovsk, and Kharkiv oblasts.

At least five people were killed and around 50 injured in various regions as of 2:30 p.m. local time. The numbers may still rise as rescue operations are ongoing.

In Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, Ukrainian defenses shot down two Shahed "kamikaze" drones, Lysak said. The buildings and cars of a utility company were damaged by drones and falling debris.
