The Russian attack on Ukraine on the night of December 5 was quite long, and the enemy used not only kamikaze drones but also S-300 anti-aircraft guided missiles.

This was announced by the spokesman of the Air Force Command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Yuriy Ignat, on the air of the United News telethon.

Night attack on Ukraine – what is known

"The attack was quite long. Not only Shahed attack UAVs, but also S-300 anti-aircraft guided missiles. The enemy sent them from the occupied territories of Donetsk and Kherson oblasts to civilian targets in Donetsk and Kherson oblasts. There is some destruction of civilian infrastructure there," Ihnat said.

He also said that the Russians launched attack drones from two directions – from the north, from the Kursk region and from Primorsko-Akhtarsk. The drones flew all the way to the western borders of Ukraine.

"Those from the Kursk region attacked the Kharkiv region. There, some of the UAVs were destroyed, and some, unfortunately, were not. But the Kharkiv region is a fairly close front-line territory, and the defenders of this region did not have much time to destroy the Shaheds, but they showed a decent result," the Air Force spokesman explained.

Drones flew all the way to the Lviv region

"Those [drones] from Prymorsko-Akhtarsk flew further across Ukraine – Mykolaiv, Kirovohrad, Kherson, Odesa, Vinnytsia (regions – ed.), and flew to the Lviv region," Ihnat said.

He noted that enemy UAVs were destroyed along the route. Fighter aircraft, anti-aircraft missile units, mobile fire groups of the Air Force, as well as other components of the Defense Forces of Ukraine were involved in this. Yes

At about 2:00 a.m., an air-raid warning was issued in a number of regions of Ukraine due to the launch of attack drones by the Russians.
