"Another Russian missile strike. UAVs and missiles were launched overnight. Unfortunately, there are some hits in the northern and western parts of Ukraine, as well as in Dnipropetrovsk and Kirovohrad regions. The Russians have somewhat changed their tactics. They first run active reconnaissance and employ decoy targets. Still, our anti-aircraft defenses dealt with the majority of enemy missiles and UAVs," he said.
