On the night of Sunday, February 11, the Russian military subjected Ukraine to one of the most massive recent strikes by Shahed-type drones. Drones were released in the Kyiv region, as well as in a number of southern and central regions of Ukraine.
According to the data of the Air Force of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, out of 45 drones, the Ukrainian Air Defense Forces shot down 40. The work of the Air Defense Forces lasted more than five hours. The air alert lasted for two hours in Kyiv. According to the city administration, all drones were shot down on approach to the capital of Ukraine.
In Mykolaiv, the authorities reported that a drone had hit an industrial facility, and a fire had started. Neighboring houses were also damaged in the explosion. One wounded person is reported. Another person was injured in the Dnipropetrovsk region, where a fire also broke out due to, as it is claimed, falling debris from a downed drone.
Russia attacks Ukraine with Shahed-type drones almost every night, sometimes in combination with missile strikes. On Saturday night, after three drones hit an oil depot in Kharkiv, a large-scale fire broke out, more than 10 private residential buildings burned down, and seven people died.
