It was also restless in the Lviv region — there were two strikes in Drohobych. The occupiers targeted industrial infrastructure facilities where there were people at that time. The head of the Drohobych Regional Military Administration, Stepan Kulyniak, commented: "A significant part of the buildings was damaged.

Kharkiv Mayor Ihor Terekhov said: "Three men were injured, they are now in the hospital in moderate condition, doctors are working with them. As for the consequences, there were hits in the production area. Unfortunately, a water pipeline with a diameter of 200 was damaged. Now our utilities and Kharkivvodokanal are working to localize the gusts that exist.
In the Khmelnytskyi region, it was also restless, but there were no casualties. As a result of the debris in one of the villages of the region, the summer kitchen of the house and the glass of the car were damaged.

It was also a difficult night in Cherkasy — as a result of the attack, the hotel building was destroyed. One person was pulled out from under the rubble, seven more were injured, and others were evacuated. However, it is not ruled out that there may still be people under the rubble.

Of course, the occupiers did not bypass the capital. Two districts came under fire — Darnytskyi and Shevchenkivskyi. In Darnytskyi, non-residential premises were damaged, and windows in residential buildings were blown out by the blast wave. Fragments of the rocket also fell on the territory of the service station, and the dormitory of the vocational school was damaged.
Consequences of the attack on Kyiv
Seven people were injured and three were hospitalized, including a 9-year-old girl. Her mother said in a comment to correspondent Oleksandr Kovalev on the air of "Breakfast with 1+1": "At the time of the attack, we were at home, sleeping. Everything happened so fast that a second is a very long time for this. My daughter heard a milliwhistle, it was a split second."
"She has a bunk bed, she got off it and at that moment our window was broken. My daughter has an open laceration, the doctors gave her first aid, took us to the hospital and stitched her up. In principle, her condition is satisfactory, but psychologically she is trembling. She is now in a safe place with my close relatives, but she is very traumatized psychologically," said the mother of the injured girl.
In the Shevchenkivskyi district, the blast wave damaged the windows of the administrative building. Fortunately, there were no casualties.
In total, almost 400 settlements throughout Ukraine were left without electricity due to the attack.
How did the occupiers attack Ukraine
Meanwhile, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Valerii Zaluzhnyi, told where and with what the Russians attacked Ukraine. They launched Kh-101/Kh-555/Kh-55 air-launched cruise missiles from the area west of Engels, using 10 Tu-95MS strategic aircraft.
The missiles were launched in several waves. They entered the airspace of Ukraine from different directions, constantly changing course along the route. Judging by this shelling, the ruscists are very angry, because in the last two days alone, the Ukrainian military has destroyed two headquarters with elite Russian soldiers.
Serhiy Bratchuk, spokesman for the Ukrainian Volunteer Army South, said on the air of "We are Ukraine": "We are well aware of what the enemy is doing to us loudly and loudly, because his mood is, to put it mildly, bad. And it's not just about what happened tonight over the territory of the occupied Crimea. Today, some drones were flying there, as if they were shot down. All this, as always, looks at least very funny."
"Let's wait for what "agent Kolobok", aka the governor of Sevastopol Razvozhaev, will report later. She understood this anger of the enemy, because yesterday there were two such fat "arrivals" and quite a lot of Muscovites were destroyed, namely the command staff - two headquarters in the area of Melitopol and Sevastopol. Moreover, these headquarters are of a high level. That's why the enemy is trying to attack us, trying to threaten and beat us again," he said.
Revenge Is Near
And this is not all that the Armed Forces of Ukraine have prepared for the enemy. The occupiers were also hit in Crimea. The temporarily occupied peninsula was "visited" by several groups of UAVs. Yevpatoria, Simferopol, Dzhankoi, Sevastopol, Saki, Novofedorivka did not sleep that night.
The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, as always, declared its power, because allegedly Russian air defense was able to destroy 19 drones, but something was fast asleep in Saki.
The occupiers called this night in Crimea a court night. Locals in the public are pouring in comments, panicking, saying that the end is approaching. And rightly so. The Security Service of Ukraine and the Navy conducted a special operation in the occupied Crimea with drones and inflicted a powerful blow on the Saky airfield.

If the occupiers think that only they know how to cheat, then here is the answer to the successful elimination of Ukrainian drones — they overloaded Russian air defense, and only then fired Neptune missiles. So now the Russians have minus at least 12 Su-24, Su-30 combat aircraft, as well as Pantsir MANPADS. There will also be no place to train Iranian drone operators, because that is where their base was located.
