The country came under a large-scale drone attack, with the Air Force reporting 14 of the 17 Russian Shahed-type unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) shot down. Russian forces also attacked Ukraine with air-launched cruise missiles Kh-59/Kh-35 from occupied parts of Kherson and Donetsk oblasts.

Three people have been killed in the southern city as of 10:45 a.m., according to Oleh Kiper, the governor of Odesa Oblast. Eight people were reportedly injured, including a child and a pregnant woman.

Many nearby apartments were also left without heat as a result of the attack.

Russian drones targeted Kharkiv around midnight, damaging several houses, five garages, and 17 cars, according to Governor Oleh Syniehubov. Three people sought assistance due to acute stress reaction, he noted.

A 76-year-old woman was killed in an attack against the Velykyi Burluk village in the Kupiansk district of Kharkiv Oblast, Syniehubov said.

In Donetsk Oblast, Russian attacks injured two people in Siversk, regional officials reported.
