Deaths in new Russian attacks in Ukraine Kiev destroys 21 drones

Several people were killed and others injured in Russian attacks on Ukrainian regions, while the Ukrainian Air Force announced on Thursday that it had shot down 21 out of 22 Shahed drones used in a Russian attack overnight.

At least five people were killed and 53 others were injured, four of them seriously, on Wednesday in a Russian missile and drone strike on the city of Dnipro in southeastern Ukraine.

Footage taken by a witness and posted by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on his Telegram account showed a large explosion in the sky followed by a fireball shooting towards the ground.

Two people were also killed in Russian strikes on the Zaporizhzhia region in southern Ukraine. “A man and a woman were killed by enemy shelling,” Governor Ivan Fedorov said on Telegram, while another man was wounded. The governor counted 391 Russian attacks on 10 towns in the Zaporizhzhia region in the past 24 hours.

The Zaporizhia region in southern Ukraine, which Russia says it has annexed, often witnesses strikes, one of which left seven dead and about 40 wounded, at the end of June.

Eight people were injured on Wednesday in a Ukrainian drone strike on a substation of the Russian-controlled Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, the Russian Rosatom group said, denouncing the proliferation of attacks.

Meanwhile, the Ukrainian air force said air defenses shot down drones over six regions in northern and central Ukraine. The governor of the northern Chernihiv region said one of the drones struck a facility in the region, without giving further details.

He added in his statement that more than five thousand consumers in the region remained without electricity until this morning, while the governor of Dnipropetrovsk said that air defenses shot down two drones over his region.

In the context, the Russian TASS news agency quoted the Defense Ministry as saying today, Thursday, that a Russian missile bombed and destroyed a Ukrainian MiG-29 fighter at an airport in the Dnipropetrovsk region.
