“Shahed” attack in Ukraine
Let us recall that on the evening of December 26 and on the night of December 27, Russian occupation forces carried out air strikes on Ukraine using Shahed loitering ammunition. So, late on Tuesday evening the enemy attacked Kherson, and also launched kamikaze drones in the direction of Starokonstantinov and Odessa.
Explosions were heard in Odessa that night, and the Defense Forces of southern Ukraine announced air defense work against hostile targets.
Later at night, the Air Force command reported that the movement of Shaheed groups had been detected in many areas, mainly on the left bank of the country. Residents of the regions were declared an alarm and urged to take shelter.
Let us also recall that on December 26, the Russians also attacked Ukraine with Shahed attack drones. The invaders released 19 Shahed-136/131 drones from the areas of Balaklava – Crimea and Primorsko-Akhtarsk – Russian Federation. Then the forces and means of the air defense of Ukraine destroyed 13 “Shahed” within the Odessa, Kherson, Nikolaev and Khmelnytsky regions.
