Russian forces launched another early morning drone attack on Ukraine on Wednesday, Oct. 25, which resulted in injuries to 16 individuals as fragments from downed Shahed aircraft fell on a critical infrastructure facility in the Khmelnitsky region.
The Khmelnitsky regional military administration (OVA) reported on its Telegram channel, citing its first deputy head, Sergey Tyurin, this was the fourth consecutive day of enemy attacks on the region.
“This night in the Khmelnitsky city, downed enemy targets did not cause damage when the debris fell," Tyurin said.
However, in the Shepetivka district within the Khmelnitsky region, drone debris damaged non-residential premises, residential buildings, and vehicles.
A representative from the OVA confirmed that 16 people from nearby homes sought medical treatment for a variety of injuries. Emergency services were reported to be currently responding to the situation.
In addition, the head of the Dnipropetrovsk OVA, Serhiy Lysak, reported via Telegram that Russia targeted the Nikopol district within the region sometime after midnight. The Manganese community experienced artillery fire, with several shells striking a village, but no casualties or injuries were reported.
The Ukrainian air force, in its Telegram channel, noted that Russian forces had launched an attack from Primorsko-Akhtarsk in Russia, to the southeast of Ukraine using 11 drones.
The air force spokesman said that fighter aircraft, anti-aircraft missile units, and mobile firing groups had been engaged in repelling the air attack. Air defense systems kicked into action in Cherkasy, Kherson, Poltava, Zhytomyr, Khmelnitsky, and Mykolaiv regions in response.Начало формы
