After Russia launched yet another barrage of unmanned aerial vehicles and Kh-101/555 missiles, Ukraine’s air defense units downed over 40 air targets.

That’s according to the Kyiv City Military Administration, Ukrinform reports.

"There were drones again this night - according to tentative reports, the enemy employed Shahed barrage munitions. Almost simultaneously with the UAV attack, enemy TU-95MS launched cruise missiles, likely Kh-101/555, from the Caspian region. So it was a combined attack on the capital, from different directions. In total, more than 40 air targets were detected and destroyed our air defense. No strikes were allowed in Kyiv! We thank the air defense for the excellent performance!" the statement reads.
